Urology Overview

A urologist, also known as a genitourinary surgeon, manages congenital and acquired conditions of the genitourinary system and contiguous structures including the adrenal gland. These conditions extend from the fetus to the elderly, and may be benign or malignant. A urologist has comprehensive knowledge of these disorders and the patients in whom they occur. This specialist is skilled in medical and open surgical therapy of these conditions as well as endoscopic, percutaneous, and other minimally invasive methods.1
