The health care professionals on our Urology team are highly trained in understanding how to deal with diseases that affect the male and female urinary tract (kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra). Our specialists also have extensive knowledge in caring for the male organs that deal with reproduction (penis, testes, scrotum, prostate, etc.). Maintaining a healthy urological system is vital because health problems in these body parts can occur in anyone.
At St. Bernards, our outstanding team of physicians is certified and specially trained to diagnose and treat urological issues. Regardless of if your problem is surgical or not, the exceptional team in urology is prepared to care for patients suffering from kidney stones to cancer. The urological team comprises doctors, nurse practitioners, RNs, LPNs, patient care navigators, and patient service representatives as part of our comprehensive approach.
What sets the St. Bernards Urology team apart?
Our patients are at the heart of what we do at St. Bernards. This carries through to ensuring that they are comfortable; the urologist team has both male and female specialists to allow patients to choose a professional they will feel most comfortable seeing. Our skilled team sees men, women, and children of all ages and understands the difficulty of discussing urological issues.
As part of our St. Bernards family, the Urology team also has access to the innovative technological tools available for surgical needs and advanced imaging. With access to both St. Bernards Medical Center and the Outpatient Surgery Center, the urologists at St. Bernards have a full range of options when it comes to patient comfort and care.
This has made a HUGE difference for me. I've had lifelong trouble and I'm so glad I had this procedure (Interstim). If you have doubts, you shouldn't. I have no regrets."
