  • Hematuria (blood in the urine)
  • Incontinence and voiding dysfunction (problems with urination)
  • Overactive bladder (OAB)
  • Interstitial cystitis (bladder inflammation)
  • Kidney stones
  • Male infertility
  • Peyronie's disease (curvature of the penis)
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Upper urinary tract tumors
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Varicocele (a widening of the veins along the spermatic cord, which supports a man's testicles)

Our Approach to Care & Surgery

Urologists at The Allen Hospital take a personalized and multidisciplinary approach to patient care. They consider each patient's disease or condition, along with his or her health and lifestyle, and use that information to personalize a plan of care. In addition, they consult with physicians in other medical specialties when planning a course of care.

When that care includes surgery, the Department has a fully equipped, state-of-the-art surgical robotics program for the treatment of prostate cancer, bladder cancer, and kidney cancer. This minimally invasive approach is associated with less blood loss, risk, and pain and a faster recovery time compared with traditional open surgery. Noncancerous conditions are also generally treated with minimally invasive techniques, such as laparoscopy or endoscopy. These techniques offer the same benefits as robotic surgery.
