Frequently Asked Questions
What is a urologist and what does he/she treat?
A urologist is a physician who specializes in diagnosis, treatment, and surgical procedures relating to the kidneys, bladder, adrenal glands, and genitourinary system. Among the specialized areas with which urologists deal are infertility, prostate, incontinence, impotence, kidney stones, cancer treatment, vasectomies, vasectomy reversals, trauma to the urinary system, and pediatric care.
When should I see a doctor for incontinence?
Generally, it’s a good idea to call your doctor or schedule an appointment if you:
- Have a sudden onset of incontinence
- Are wearing a urine absorption pad because of frequent accidents
- Find that incontinence is interfering with your quality of life
What can I do to maintain good urologic health?
The best way to avoid urological problems is to maintain good overall health habits, including exercising regularly, maintaining a healthy weight and avoiding tobacco, excessive alcohol and caffeine.
You should also avoid foods or substances that remove water from the body, known as diuretics.
