The American Foundation for Urologic Disease estimates that more than 12 million Americans suffer bladder control problems. In addition to urinary incontinence, medical staff urologists at Saint Joseph Hospital provide surgical and non-surgical options for a broad range of diseases and disorders of the bladder, kidney, urinary tract and prostate. They also address problems in the male reproductive system.
Urologic care at Saint Joseph Hospital is supported by innovative research programs - in both clinical care and basic science - that allow development of new therapeutic opportunities, including new treatments for prostate cancer, sexual problems, fertility issues and minimally invasive surgery. This focus on advancing the state of knowledge in urology leads to the compassionate and expert provision of state-of-the-art treatment.
Saint Joseph Hospital offers robotic surgery and minimally invasive surgery, approaches whose advantages include small incisions, less blood loss, shorter recovery times, and less post-operative pain. Robotic prostate surgery patients at Saint Joseph Hospital benefit from minimal impact on quality of life, including sexual function and urinary control.
Our patients receive urologic care in a warm and sensitive environment that allows them the opportunity to choose treatment opportunities that best suit their needs and desires.
