What is Urology?

Urology is a surgical specialty which deals with diseases of the male and female urinary tract and the male reproductive organs. Although urology is classified as a surgical specialty, a knowledge of internal medicine, pediatrics, gynecology and other specialties is required by the urologist because of the wide variety of clinical issues encountered.

Urology specializes in caring for the following conditions:

  • General urology

  • Prostate, bladder, kidney, and other urologic cancers

  • Kidney stones

  • Urinary incontinence

  • BPH

  • Overactive bladder

  • Male sexual health

  • Pelvic floor disorders

  • Urinary retention

  • Hematuria

  • Vasectomy

Whether it's a leaky bladder, a painful stone, or a life threatneing cancer, we've got your covered. To learn more about our services or to schedule an appointment at Hicksville, call Vanwert Urology at 419-232-6051 and ask to be scheduled in Hicksville.
