Symptoms and Signs You Need a Urologist

It is always best to talk to a physician if something doesn’t feel right or changes, but you probably should see a urologist if you are having issues such as:

  • Difficulty urinating
  • Pain when urinating
  • Blood in urine
  • Changes in urination
  • Reproductive issues like erectile dysfunction
  • Painful bladder
  • Heaviness in your genitals
  • Pelvic pain
  • Infertility

Types of urology issues

While there are many types of issues that can require urological services, some of the more common urology issues include:

  • Prostate issues: While any issues with the prostate can be scary due to the threat of cancer, a urologist can help make the right diagnosis and come up with the right treatment for you.
  • UTIs: A urinary tract infection can be painful, and typically needs antibiotics for you to feel better. A urologist can diagnose your UTI and prescribe antibiotics that help you recover.
  • Kidney Stones: Although kidney stones may pass on their own, sometimes urologic robotic surgery is needed to break them up or take them out to minimize pain.
  • Pelvic Floor Dysfunction: An inability to relax that hinder your ability for bowel movements, a urologist can help with pelvic floor issues.
  • Erectile Dysfunction: While there is a stigma around ED, it is typically treatable. Talk to your urologist and help move past this frustrating issue.
  • Infertility: Some reproductive issues can be caused by the urological tract, and a urologist can help determine if this is the case for you.

Urological Procedures in Palm Beach County

Sometimes your urologist will recommend surgery to help fix your condition. We perform many types of urology surgeries and urologic robotic surgeries at Wellington Regional Medical Center, located in Wellington, FL. Some of these include:

Urologic robotic surgery

  • Transurethral prostatectomy: A transurethral prostatectomy is when your urologist removes parts of your prostate through the urethra to assist with prostate issues.
  • Laser lithotripsy: This procedure utilizes technology to break up stones in your urological system so that they may pass or be removed more easily.
  • UroLift insertions: A UroLift device is designed to help patients with an enlarged prostate by lifting and holding the prostate out of the way, allowing the urethra to open.
  • Robotic nephrectomies: A robotic nephrectomy is a type of urologic robotic surgery in which a surgeon uses robot-assisted methods to remove part or all of a damaged kidney.
  • Percutaneous nephrolithotomy: This procedure removes kidney stones from your body if they are too big to pass naturally by going from the skin in your back to the kidney.
