The urologic specialists at Bayshore Medical Center offer medical and surgical services to treat and prevent urologic diseases and conditions. Our board certified surgeons work closely with our team of Magnet nurses to provide expert quality care to patients using state-of-the-art technology close to home. We develop individualized treatment plans, in collaboration with other specialists, offering patients the most comprehensive care available, allowing for the best possible outcomes.
Using a minimally invasive and robotic-assisted surgical approach, we treat a number of urologic conditions, including:
- Prostate, kidney or bladder cancer
- Tumors of the adrenal glands
- Urinary obstruction (ureteral stricture, tumor or congenital)
- Large and symptomatic renal cysts
- Kidney Stones
- Reconstructive pyeloplasty
- Ureteral re-implantation due to ureteral obstruction
- Nephrectomy (radical and partial)
Kidney stones can affect part of your urinary tract, from your kidneys to your bladder, and are typically caused from a poor diet, some medical conditions, medications or an excess of body weight. Depending on the size of the stone, passing them may be painful, but can often be treated simply with medication, drinking lots of water and a change in your diet. However, in some circumstances, it may be medically necessary to remove them surgically.
Our urology experts offer patients advanced treatment for removing kidney stones as safely and effectively as possible, through robotic and minimally invasive techniques. Most procedures for small stones are performed as same-day surgery, allowing patients to quickly return to work and other daily activities. Your doctor may also work with a nutritionist and nephrologist for preventive treatment, which will aid in reducing your risk of kidney stones recurring.
Contact a urologist if symptoms of a kidney stone are present. Symptoms of a kidney stone include:
- Sharp pain in the side, belly or back, below the ribs
- Pain or burning sensation during urination
- Pain that radiates to the lower abdomen and groin
- Nausea or vomiting
- Pink, red or brown urine
- Cloudy or foul-smelling urine
- A persistent need to urinate, urinating more often than usual or urinating in small amounts
