What Is a Pediatric Urologist?

A pediatric urologist specializes in diagnosing and treating urinary and genital conditions in children, ensuring a comfortable and child-friendly environment during examinations. To become certified, they undergo at least 14 years of education and training, including medical degrees, residencies, and fellowship training in pediatric urology. Common conditions they address include undescended testicles, urinary tract infections, kidney stones, and bladder control issues. Pediatricians typically refer children with serious urological issues to these specialists. Pediatric urologists conduct thorough examinations, recommend appropriate treatments, and may perform surgeries if necessary, prioritizing the child's well-being throughout the process. Regular check-ups with pediatricians help identify when specialized care is needed.

Faces of Healthcare: What Is a Urologist?

Urologists specialize in diagnosing and treating urinary and reproductive system issues in both genders, performing surgeries and treatments in hospitals, clinics, and urology centers. They address conditions affecting the kidneys, bladder, ureters, urethra, and male reproductive organs like the prostate and testicles. Training includes four-year medical degrees, four to five years of residency, and optional fellowship training. Urologists treat a range of issues including cancers, kidney stones, erectile dysfunction, and urinary tract infections. They conduct various tests and procedures like imaging scans, cystoscopy, and biopsies. Symptoms indicating a need for a urologist include blood in urine, pain during urination, and sexual dysfunction.

What Tests Will a Urologist Do If I Have ED?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) can stem from physical, mental, or emotional factors like heart disease, diabetes, stress, and relationship issues. Doctors assess medical and sexual histories to pinpoint potential causes, followed by physical exams to check for abnormalities in the penis, testicles, and hormonal imbalances. Blood and urine tests screen for conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and low testosterone. Overnight erection tests monitor nocturnal erections, indicating potential psychological factors. Injection tests stimulate erections to evaluate blood flow, while ultrasounds assess penile blood flow. Mental health evaluations help detect depression and anxiety, while partner discussions provide insight into relational dynamics impacting ED
