Treatment Options for Urologic Conditions
A wide variety of conditions may affect a person’s urologic system, which consists of the kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, urethra, and the male reproductive organs (testes, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate and penis). These conditions include, but are not limited to cancers like prostate, bladder and kidney cancer, and benign conditions like ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction and vesicoureteral reflux.
When medication and other non-surgical treatments are either unavailable or cannot relieve symptoms, surgery is the accepted treatment for a broad range of conditions that affect the organs of the urinary tract and the male reproductive organs.
Depending on your condition and its stage, treatment options for urologic conditions may include:
- Open Surgery
- Minimally Invasive Surgery
- Radiation Therapy
- Watchful Waiting
- Hormonal Therapy
- Treatment Comparison
