Urology is a specialty focused on the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the urinary system. With 16 available inpatient rooms and a team of 69, we work tirelessly to treat and help patients with urologic difficulties.

Treatment and Services
MIHS providers work to address each patient’s unique needs. They provide consultations, evaluations and pre- and post- surgical care. A variety of urologic conditions are treated at MIHS by such procedures:
Cystoscopy: a non-invasive surgical procedure which permits a physician to examine the lining of the bladder and the tube which carries urine out of the body.
Prostate Biopsy: a surgical procedure which removes small samples of prostate tissue which then is sent to a laboratory to be tested and examined under a microscope.
Prostatectomy: the surgical resection or removal of the prostate gland.
Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL): a non-invasive surgical procedure for the treatment of kidney stones. During this procedure, shockwaves from outside the body are directed at a stone causing it to break into small pieces. This is for both single and multiple stones within the kidney.
Nephrectomy: a surgical procedure to remove all or part of a kidney.
Urodynamic Testing: a study performed in the clinic to evaluate urinary incontinence by assessing bladder function and efficiency.
