Adult & Pediatric Urology Q & A

What is adult and pediatric urology?

Adult and pediatric urology are medical specialties that diagnose, treat, and prevent problems affecting the urinary tract. The urinary tract is a complex system that includes the kidneys, bladder, ureters, and urethra. It plays a critical role in removing waste from the body and in human reproduction.

People of all ages experience urologic problems, but these issues affect adults and children differently. The team at Hemet Valley Urology Medical Center boasts extensive training and works with children, teens, and adults to improve their quality of life.

What types of issues do adult and pediatric urology treat?

At Hemet Valley Urology Medical Center, the team uses adult and pediatric urology to treat various issues, including:

  • Evaluation and management of voiding disorders and urinary infections
  • Surgical reconstruction of the urinary tract
  • Surgery for groin (like an undescended testicle)
  • Evaluation and management of kidney stones and kidney disease
  • Surgical management and removal of tumors or other abnormal growths
  • Management of urinary tract conditions caused by spina bifida
  • Management of urological conditions identified prior to birth

The team also provides management of prostate-related health problems, including prostate cancer and an enlarged prostate.

What happens during an adult or pediatric urology appointment?

An adult or pediatric urology appointment begins with a comprehensive physical exam, a review of your medical history, and a discussion of your symptoms, including when they first started, how severe they are, and if any foods, beverages, or activities seem to make them worse.

After gathering this basic information, your provider orders additional testing as necessary. Depending on your age, current health, and needs, that might include urinalysis, blood work, an MRI, an ultrasound, or urinary flow testing. These measures can help diagnose urinary issues not visible to the naked eye.

Following a diagnosis, your provider develops a custom care plan. Often, that includes healthy lifestyle changes, prescription medication, targeted therapy, and, if necessary, surgical intervention.

Who can benefit from adult and pediatric urology?

Anyone who regularly experiences urological issues like frequent urination, urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, or erectile dysfunction can benefit from a urology appointment. The sooner you take steps to find the underlying cause, the sooner you can start down the road to recovery.
