About Urology and Andrology

 

Urology is a branch of surgery that encompasses the study and treatment of disease affecting the urinary and genital tracts. These include organs such as the kidneys, the ureters (tubes though which urine travels between the kidney and the urinary bladder), the bladder, the prostate, the urethra (tube leading urine from the bladder to the outside), as well as the male and occasionally female genital organs. Diseases which we deal with as urologists include stones, infections, cancer, reconstruction and infertility. 

 

Andrology is a highly specialised branch of urology which deals with Men's health issues. These include male factor infertility, cancer of the male genital organs (penis and testis mainly), erectile and ejaculation difficulties and also reconstruction after surgery or other disease including trauma.

General urology conditions we treat

Investigation and management of:

 

 1) Benign male genital problems e.g.        foreskin problems, benign                      testicular lumps 

 2) prostate assessment for raised PSA tests and for male urinary symptoms

 

 3) Investigation of blood in the urine

 

 4) Urinary tract infections in men and      women

Although foreskin conditions fall in the remit of general urology, as andrologists, we are particularly expert at dealing with most conditions involving the male genitals.
