What is urology?

Urology caters for patients affected by medical conditions of the urinary tract system in men and women, and the reproductive system in men. The male and female urinary tract system consists of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra – all of which are essential for the removal of wastes and toxins from the body. In addition, the male reproductive system consists of the prostate, vas deferens, urethra, penis, testes, and scrotum. The medical professional who hold the specialised expertise in managing disorders of the male and female urinary tract as well as that of the male reproductive tract are known as urologist. At Beacon Hospital, our urology department is staffed by top-ranked urologists who are also in the vanguard of utilising leading-edge technology and treatments to provide you more targeted, effective patient-focused care.
