An urologist is a physician who is trained to evaluate the genitourinary tract, which includes the kidneys, urinary bladder and genital structures in men and women, and the prostate and testicles in men.

The urologist has the ability to evaluate the function of these structures, the diseases and conditions that can impact them and adversely affect their normal operation and the medical and surgical tools to optimize their function, treat diseases and conditions of these organs and enhance a person’s quality of life.

You should see an urologist if you have any of the following problems/symptoms:
- discomfort while urinating
- a sense of difficulty in completely emptying the bladder
- incontinence, a loss of urinary control
- hematuria, the appearance of blood in the urine
- the sensation of pain appearing to be related to one of the structures of the urinary tract
- problems with sexual function
- infertility, difficulties involved in conceiving a child
