Conditions

  • Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

    Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

    Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, or BPH, is typically a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate which leads to bothersome urinary symptoms over time. This prostate enlargement typically begins in a patient’s late 40s and can progress with age.

  • Bladder Cancer

    Bladder Cancer

    Bladder cancer is the abnormal growth of cells that make up the bladder. Bladder cancer is responsible for approximately 3% of all malignancies diagnosed in Australia each year. It is more common in men than women and typically affects those over 60 years of age.

  • Kidney Cancer

    Kidney Cancer

    Kidneys are part of the urinary system and are the bean-shaped pair of organs located on either side of the spine in the back of the lower abdomen. The major function of the kidneys is to cleanse the blood of waste products and excrete them from the body in the form of urine.

  • Kidney Stones

    Kidney Stones

    As the kidneys filter the blood of impurities, minerals and acid salts can accumulate and harden over time. These solid crystalline deposits are called kidney stones and can form in one or both kidneys. The stones can travel down the urinary tract and block the flow of urine, causing severe pain and bleeding.

  • Low Testosterone

    Low Testosterone

    Low Testosterone, or hypogonadism, refers to a decrease in testosterone levels either due to a problem with testicular production or problems in the pituitary gland. Levels of testosterone are typically measured under 300ng/dl and lead to unwanted symptoms.

  • Overactive Bladder

    Overactive Bladder

    The act of urination is controlled by nerve impulses triggered by a full urinary bladder (temporary storage unit of urine). The nerves signal the muscles (urinary sphincter muscles) around the bladder to relax and contract, pushing urine to the outside.

  • Prostate Cancer

    Prostate Cancer

    Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in men, yet it is highly curable if discovered while still confined to the prostate gland. Most prostate cancers grow slowly, usually remain confined within the prostate gland and cause no harm.

  • Voiding Dysfunction

    Voiding Dysfunction

    Voiding dysfunction is an abnormal urination pattern. It is described as a child’s inability to empty the bladder completely. Voiding dysfunction may be caused due to congenital abnormalities, trauma, presence of tumors, poor toileting habits, past urinary tract infections, or emotional or psychological stress. It may also be associated with other neurological, endocrine or genetic disorders.

  • Hematuria (Blood in Urine)

    Hematuria (Blood in Urine)

    Hematuria is a condition characterized by blood in the urine. Hematuria is usually categorized into macroscopic, where the urine is discolored, and microscopic, where blood is found only on a dipstick or microscopic examination.

  • Urinary Incontinence

    Urinary Incontinence

    Urinary incontinence is the loss of normal control of the bladder and involuntary loss of urine. Many people with urinary incontinence are too embarrassed. Urinary incontinence in some individuals may be a normal part of growth and disappears naturally over time.

  • Stress Urinary Incontinence

    Stress Urinary Incontinence

    Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) refers to urinary leakage with sudden pressure on the bladder and urethra, such as during coughing, laughing, sneezing, or lifting heavier objects. Mild SUI may not cause much bother and often patients wear a small absorbent pad or liner.

  • Peyronie's Disease

    Peyronie's Disease

    The male penis serves a very important role in urinary function and as a sexual organ. The penis is a cylindrical organ which consists of 3 separate parts. In the upper portion, there are 2 cylindrical bodies which lie side by side (corpora cavernosa) and are surrounded by a layer of connective tissue called the tunica albuginea.

  • Urethral Stricture

    Urethral Stricture

    Urethral strictures usually occur due to inflammation and scar formation in the urethra. This can occur with the introduction of penile implants, catheters, previous surgery to the urethra, prostate surgery and injuries close to the scrotum.

  • Carrier Screening for Family Planning

    Carrier Screening for Family Planning

    An important step in such tests is an identification of a carrier (a person with either mild or no symptoms of the disorder, but capable of passing on the disorder to his or her child through a particular gene). This involves genetic counselling and laboratory testing of blood or saliva.

  • Erectile Dysfunction

    Erectile Dysfunction

    Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient for sexual intercourse. Unfortunately, as men age ED is almost inevitable, and typically will worsen with time.
