CLINICAL DEPARTMENT Urology

Urologists diagnose and treat diseases of the urinary tract in both men and women.  They also diagnose and treat anything involving the reproductive tract in men ie reproductive organs, prostate.  The urinary tract is the system that creates, stores, and removes urine from the body - Urologists can treat any part of this system.  This includes kidneys, ureters, bladder, urethra, adrenal glands.  

Some conditions may only last a short time, while others are long-lasting and can have a significant impact your day to day life.  If you are concerned, our expert Consultant Urologists at our private healthcare clinic in Hillsborough can make a diagnosis and help you manage your condition, or recommend surgery to correct it.  Our Consultants can also offer vasectomy or circumcision procedures.
