Our team of more than 25 research scientists run one of the largest prostate clinical trial programs in the U.S. Our prostate cancer oncologists work closely with our research team. This partnership lets us provide the most advanced early diagnosis technology and treatments available.

About Male Urology

A variety of conditions can affect your urinary and reproductive systems. Urology problems can range from mild to life-threatening, but all of them can impact your quality of life.

Common Urology Conditions in Men Include:

Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH)

BPH, or enlarged prostate, is a common problem in men as you get older. It may cause urinary difficulty or feelings of urgency.


Incontinence is a condition where you leak urine by accident. Or, you may have a sudden urge to urinate even if your bladder isn’t full. In men, incontinence is often related to prostate problems.

Kidney Stones

Kidney stones form in your kidney and then move to your bladder and out through your urethra. Many stones pass through on their own, but a large stone may require treatment.

Male Infertility and Sexual Dysfunction

Urologic problems such as low sperm production or sperm duct blockages may cause male infertility. Difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection (erectile dysfunction) is a common problem in men. Premature and delayed ejaculation are also common concerns.

Urethral Strictures

Narrowing of the urethra, the tube that carries urine and sperm out of your body, can cause urinary problems. Urethral strictures often result from injuries.

Urologic Cancers

Bladder, prostate and testicular cancers are common in men.


Urology Services We Offer

We offer a full range of urology services for men that use the latest research and most advanced procedures available.

Our services include:

Fertility Preservation

We provide options for sperm collection and storage to preserve fertility for the future.

Kidney Stone Removal

We use minimally invasive procedures to remove kidney stones that can’t pass on their own. Our kidney stone clinic provides comprehensive medical and surgical services.

Laparoscopic Urology

Laparoscopic techniques require only very small incisions. They come with less pain, a shorter hospital stay, faster recovery and minimal scarring. We offer laparoscopic surgery for removing tumors and treating other urologic conditions.

Prostate Cancer Treatment

Our oncology specialists work with your cancer care team to create a prostate cancer treatment plan that’s tailored to you. We use minimally invasive, technology-assisted methods for prostate removal.

Robotic-Assisted Surgery

We use the state-of-the-art da Vinci® robotic-assisted surgical system for precision prostate removal. We’re experts at performing prostatectomies that preserve nerve function and minimize recovery time. We also use Focal Therapy, which uses ultrasound waves to destroy cancer cells without harming healthy tissue.

Vasectomy and Vasectomy Reversal

We offer a no-scalpel vasectomy as an outpatient procedure with a quick recovery time. We also perform a microsurgical procedure to reverse vasectomies and allow you to conceive naturally.
