When to Seek Urological Care

Urological conditions can manifest in various ways, including prostate issues, chronic urinary tract infections (UTIs), urinary incontinence, and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). These conditions can significantly impact a person's quality of life, which is why we prioritize early diagnosis and effective treatment for these conditions. Urological care should be sought whenever you experience persistent or concerning symptoms related to the urinary tract or male reproductive system – these symptoms can include frequent urination, pain or burning sensation during urination, blood in the urine, lower back pain, or sexual dysfunction.

In men, issues like difficulties with urination, testicular pain or lumps, and erectile dysfunction may also indicate a need for urological attention. In women, recurrent urinary tract infections or incontinence could warrant a visit to a urologist. It's crucial to remember that early detection of urological conditions can significantly improve treatment outcomes, so don't delay seeking medical help if you notice any unusual symptoms.

Specializing in Prostate Health

Our urologists are particularly skilled in nerve-sparing prostatectomies, a procedure that can preserve sexual function while effectively treating prostate cancer. Another tool we use specifically in the diagnosis of BPH is the International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) survey.

This survey measures the severity of your BPH symptoms, helping our physicians to better understand your condition and tailor a treatment plan for you. This expertise, backed by KDMC's long-standing experience in providing quality healthcare, has established us as a regional leader in men's prostate health.
