Urology is a medical field that addresses a wide spectrum of conditions. It includes kidney and bladder stone problems, urinary disorders, incontinence, and various cancers affecting the genitourinary system.
These conditions can significantly impact one's quality of life and, in some cases, be life-threatening. The encouraging news is that advancements in urology technology have progressed swiftly.
Urology is a medical specialty concerned with the treatment and management of conditions and diseases affecting the urinary tract and male reproductive system. Urologists are trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions, from common issues such as urinary tract infections and prostate problems, to more complex conditions such as cancer and infertility.
Below you will find a wide variety of conditions that we treat, using the most advanced diagnostic and therapeutic techniques to achieve the best results.

BPH -- Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), also known as enlarged prostate, is a common condition in which the prostate gland grows, causing urinary symptoms and difficulties. BPH affects a significant number of men as they age and can have a significant impact on their quality of life. Some of the most common symptoms of BPH include frequent urination, difficulty starting and stopping urination, weak urine flow, and a feeling of incomplete bladder emptying.
Urinary Incontinence -- Urinary incontinence is a common but often embarrassing condition in which a person experiences the unintentional loss of urine. This can range from a small leak to complete loss of bladder control and can have a significant impact on a person's quality of life. Urinary incontinence can be caused by a range of physical and emotional factors, including age, menopause, pregnancy, obesity, and certain medical conditions.
Elevated PSA -- Elevated prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels can be a sign of prostate cancer or other conditions affecting the prostate gland. PSA is a protein produced by the prostate gland and is commonly used as a screening tool for prostate cancer. An elevated PSA level does not always indicate the presence of cancer, but it can be a warning sign that further evaluation is needed.
Circumcision -- Circumcision is a surgical procedure in which the foreskin, the skin covering the tip of the penis, is removed. The procedure is commonly performed for religious, cultural, or medical reasons. Circumcision can have both physical and psychological effects and is a personal decision that should be made after careful consideration and consultation with a healthcare provider.
Urinary Tract Stones -- Urinary tract stones, also known as kidney stones, are hard deposits of minerals and salts that form in the urinary tract. These stones can cause severe pain and discomfort as they move through the urinary tract and can also lead to other complications such as urinary tract infections or blockages. The formation of urinary tract stones can be caused by a range of factors, including diet, genetics, and certain medical conditions.
Kidney, Prostate, Bladder Cancer -- Urologic cancers are a group of cancers that affect the urinary system and the male reproductive system. These cancers can be life-threatening and can have a significant impact on a person's quality of life. Some common types of urologic cancers include prostate cancer, bladder/ureter cancer, kidney cancer, and testicular cancer.
STI and Communicable diseases -- Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are infections that can be spread through sexual contact, including vaginal, anal, and oral sex. STIs can have serious health consequences if left untreated, including infertility, pelvic pain, and increased risk of HIV and other infections.
The most common urological conditions include urinary tract infections (UTIs), kidney stones, prostate issues (like BPH or prostate cancer), and erectile dysfunction.
You should consult a urologist if you experience symptoms like persistent urinary problems, blood in urine, kidney pain, or concerns about your sexual health. Many times you will be referred to a Urologist as well for specialized care.
During your first urology treatment session, expect a detailed medical history discussion, physical examination, and possibly diagnostic tests. We may perform a urine analysis and/or bedside imaging and tests to diagnose and plan treatment.

If you have ever gone to the emergency room, you know how scary that can be. Dr. Patel saw me once I was admitted to the hospital, and over the course of the next month had helped me with a urinary problem that had been bothering me for years and sent me to the hospital. Now, I can sleep through the night, and have no issues. He helped me when I needed help the most.

I had seen Dr. Patel after being referred by my nephrologist for a mass in my kidney. I had a robotic surgery and was out of the hospital the next day just on Tylenol! He had spared my kidney, and now 2 years later I still have no sign of the tumor and my kidneys are functioning well. Thank you Dr. Patel for all that you do!

We were referred to Dr. Patel by a fertility doctor. We had seen other urologists and were disappointed that we were constantly told we could not have children. Dr. Patel had given us hope when there was none, and now we are celebrating the 2nd birthday of our second child! We are eternally grateful for everything that Dr. Patel has done for us.

I had high blood pressure from a mass in my adrenal gland. I was taking 5 medications to try and control it, and it was still high. Dr. Patel did a laparoscopic surgery to take out the adrenal gland, and now I am on only a small amount of medication. You will not be disappointed seeing him.
