Urological disorders and conditions can have a major impact on your daily living. Our team of experts at Faith Regional in Norfolk, NE can help diagnose and treat your condition and get you back to living your life.
Urology focuses on diseases of your urinary tract - your body’s system for removing urine. This includes your kidneys, bladder, ureters (muscles that carry urine into the bladder), and urethra (the tube that drains the urine out of your bladder).
Both men and women may need urological care. If you’re a man, you may need treatment for conditions of the reproductive system, including the penis, testes, scrotum, and prostate. If you’re a woman, you may also benefit from seeking care with a urologist for problems with incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse (when the uterus or bladder starts to descend or press into the vagina).
How Our Urologists Can Help
Our urologists specialize in diagnosing and treating urological disorders, including:
Our urologists will work closely with you to develop an individualized treatment plan to help you achieve the best possible outcome. Your treatment plan may include a surgical or non-surgical solution. Some of the treatments or procedures Faith Regional offers include:
Used to treat incontinence, your urologist will inject Botox into your bladder to block and calm the sensory receptors in the bladder muscles. The procedure is performed in the clinic with a local anesthetic. There’s no recovery time and you can resume normal activities right away.
Your urologist will use a special telescope-like tool called a cystoscope to take a closer look at your bladder and urethra.
Your urologist will remove a tiny tissue sample from your prostate to test for cancer.
Rezūm Water Vapor Therapy
Used to treat an enlarged prostate, your urologist uses natural water vapor to destroy the excess prostate cells that squeeze the urethra resulting in the opening of the urethra and reduced symptoms. Rezūm Water Vapor Therapy is performed in the clinic and patients can return to normal activities within a few days.
Your urologist will cut the tubes that carry your sperm to prevent pregnancy.
