What is Urology?

The urologists at UM Rehabilitation & Orthopaedic Institute evaluate and treat disorders of the kidneys, prostate, bladder, testicles and pelvic floor. They provide both medical and surgical options to patients with a variety of issues, though some of the more common problems include:

  • Urinary incontinence (female and male)
  • Voiding dysfunction (difficulty urinating, frequent urination, waking at night to urinate)
  • Kidney & bladder stones
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Bladder, kidney, prostate and testicular cancer
  • Male infertility

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Strokes (CVA)
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Other neurologic conditions which affect the bladder (e.g. Parkinson's, Spina Bifida)
