Urology Austin specializes in urologic conditions that affect men and women.
Urology is a diverse field of medicine that specializes in the treatment of conditions and diseases associated with the urinary tract, men’s reproductive organs and fertility. With so many organs, and their functions, involved, there are several urologic conditions that can affect men and women throughout their lives.
Urologists are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of many urologic conditions. Urologists routinely employ advanced therapeutic and surgical techniques to address health concerns, restore urologic function, improve patient health and help maintain their quality of life.

Urologic conditions that affect women
Just like male urology, there are several health conditions that are unique to women.
