Urology

A medical specialty focusing on the function and disorders of the urinary system in both men and women.

Urologists can also diagnose and treat matters involving the reproductive system in men.

The urology services offered through Touchette Regional Hospital are comprehensive in nature and can help if you are experiencing urologic conditions that cause you discomfort such as painful urination, poor bladder control, or even pain in the groin area.

  • Bladder infections
  • Bladder prolapse (in women)
  • Cancers of the bladder, kidneys, and adrenal glands
  • Interstitial cystitis (painful bladder syndrome)
  • Overactive bladder
  • Kidney pain, infection, diseases and stones
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Infertility (in men)
  • Prostatitis (in men)
  • Varicoceles (in men)

At Touchette Regional Hospital, we employ urologists that are credentialed in numerous health plans. The physicians, RNs, medical assistants, and clinical service representatives, as well as licensed physician assistants and certified nurse practitioners are proud to offer exceptional care tailored to your needs.
