If you're having issues with your urinary tract or reproductive organs, you want an expert team that can help you address your concerns with care and respect. That's where our doctors excel—our urologists and urogynecologists located throughout the Philadelphia region are leading the field with advanced treatments and diagnostic techniques, and your health and comfort are our top priorities.
There's more to the urinary system than just your bladder—the kidneys, ureters and urethra are also involved, plus the prostate in men. Well-rounded care means taking the health of each of those organs into account when forming a diagnosis and treatment plan.
Our team diagnoses, treats and manages a variety of conditions, including:
- Urinary incontinence
- Prostate disease
- Prostate cancer
- Pelvic organ prolapse
- Prolapsed bladder
- Neurogenic bladder dysfunction
- Bladder stones
- Bladder cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Kidney stones
- Interstitial cystitis
Our doctors will work with you to uncover the source of your symptoms and build a treatment plan that works for you. If you need another specialist to weigh in, such as an oncologist, you have access to the entire Main Line Health team.
Treatment options for urological problems
Treatment for urological problems often requires precise surgery to remove or repair the delicate urinary organs. Our doctors specialize in minimally invasive surgical procedures, including robotic-assisted and laparoscopic surgeries.
We frequently perform minimally invasive surgeries like:
- Robotic-assisted prostatectomy
- Laparoscopic/robotic radical cystectomy (bladder removal) and reconstruction
- Laparoscopic/robotic pyeloplasty
- Laparoscopic nephrectomy/nephroureterectomy
- Laparoscopic/robotic partial nephrectomy
- Laparoscopic retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (RPLND)
- Laparoscopic radiofrequency ablation/cryoablation of renal masses
- Percutaneous radiofrequency ablation of renal masses
- Single key-hole surgery
- Laparoscopic/robotic reconstructive surgery of the bladder and ureter
Our doctors prefer to perform minimally invasive surgery when possible to make the process easier for you. Don’t see the particular surgery you had in mind? Our doctors perform a variety of other common procedures, too.
Our team also specializes in non-surgical treatments, such as ultrasound lithotripsy for kidney stones.
