What’s Urology?

Urology Defined

Urology is the medical and surgical specialty that deals with diseases of the male and female urinary tracts and the male reproductive organs. Although urology is classified as a surgical specialty, knowledge of internal medicine, pediatrics, gynecology, and other specialties is required by the urologist because of the wide variety of clinical problems encountered.


The American Urological Association has identified seven subspecialty areas of this medical field:


  1. Pediatric Urology

  2. Urologic Oncology (cancer)

  3. Renal Transplantation

  4. Male Infertility

  5. Calculi (urinary tract stones)

  6. Female Urology (urinary incontinence and pelvic outlet relaxation disorders)

  7. Neurourology (voiding disorders, urodynamic evaluation of patients, and ED or impotence)
