Men's Urology Care
In our current day and age, men are living longer and healthier lives than in the decades past. While there are many contributors to that, the primary cause of this increase in life expectancy and overall health can be credited to men making wiser lifestyle choices. Eating healthier, not smoking, moderate exercise, and the like all play a role.
However, one often overlooked reason is because men are becoming more informed on and educated about their medical histories, choices, and treatments; opting to get their preventative screening and checkups, unlike the generations before them.
Your urological system—and its overall health—is just as important to you and your life as your vascular system.
Thankfully, most of the ailments, conditions, and diseases men face today are preventable, treatable, and even curable. If found early and acted upon.
Led by board certified urologists and providors, Urology Care’s team treats some of the most common urologic problems affecting men of any age, including incontinence, sexual health issues, and conditions affecting the prostate.
Benign conditions that afflict the prostate, such as enlarged (BPH), infected, or dysfunctional prostates, may only cause minor pain or discomfort. However, mishandling the condition can have drastic impacts long term, such as urinary incontinence, if left untreated. These conditions could also be indicative of more serious conditions, such as prostate cancer. Learn more about the prostate and conditions that can affect it here.
Prostate cancer is estimated to affect one in six men in the US during their lifetime. It is estimated that roughly 30,000 men will die from prostate cancer this year alone. Early detection and the proper treatment are not only essential for ensuring survival, but also to preserve normal bladder functions and sexual capabilities.

Kidney stones form when minerals and salt in the urine clump together and form ‘stones’, which can range in size from as small as a grain of sand or as large as a golf ball. Some stones are able to pass naturally, whereas larger stones may require treatment. You can learn more about the treatments we offer by clicking here.
