General Urology at USMD|UANT

Urology is the medical specialty concerned with diseases of the urinary tract in men and women, and diseases of the genital tract in men. There are about 9,500 practicing urologists in the United States. The typical education track for a urologist is 4 years of medical school, 1 or 2 years of general surgery training, and 3 or 4 years of residency in urology. Some urologists continue their education after residency in a focused area of subspecialty- a fellowship.

Fellowship training in urology can be accomplished in urologic oncology, pediatrics, voiding dysfunction, laparoscopy/endourology, sexual medicine, pelvic reconstructive surgery, clinical research and male infertility. The specialty combines medical and surgical training, and encompasses a wide variety of clinical problems in men and women of all ages. For more about the specialty and the requirements for certification see The American Board of Urology.

The most common presenting complaints or conditions in a urology practice are:

 

The general urologists at USMD|UANT are highly qualified by their training and experience to manage the full evaluation and most treatment of all patients with these conditions and more. Occasionally a higher level of care may be needed for some conditions. What distinguishes USMD|UANT from other urology practices is the ability to concentrate (within the practice) the management of selected or complicated problems in the hands of subspecialists or Centers of Excellence. We believe by doing so we may achieve superior outcomes for our patients. If in the determination of the general urologist a patient may benefit from a referral to a physician with a very high volume of experience in a certain area, that patient can easily and quickly be referred within the practice to a COE. The USMD|UANT COE physician will have access to all of the medical records and tests performed to date. If and when appropriate, after evaluation and management of the condition the patient will be referred back to the USMD|UANT general urologist for follow-up.
