Diagnosis & Treatment of Urological Disorders

Urinary tract diseases can be very painful for both men and women. If you are experiencing discomfort in the lower abdomen or abnormalities in urine, it is recommended that you get looked over by a urologist. A urologist can perform diagnosis, treatment, and even surgery on these conditions and put you on the path towards recovery.

We provide urological services on an outpatient basis. Our urologists practice both medicine and surgery.

What Conditions Does a Urologist Treat?

Urologists treat conditions of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, urethra, adrenal glands, and male reproductive system. Most people visit a urologist based on a recommendation from their primary care physician. It is worth mentioning the possibility to your regular physician if you believe a urologist would be able to assist you with your condition.

Urologists frequently provide treatment for:

  • Kidney stones
  • Blood in urine
  • Urinary tract infections (UTI)
  • Male infertility
  • Bed-wetting
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Pain when urinating
  • Prostate, kidney, bladder, and male reproductive cancers
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Pain when urinating

Good Samaritan Physician Network urologists William Vaughn, MD and Bart DeBrock, MD, are now treating patients with the Urolift System, the first permanent implant to treat symptoms due to urinary outflow obstruction secondary to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in men 50 years of age or older. Cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2013, the UroLift System is designed to relieve symptoms caused by an enlarged prostate, while preserving sexual function.

BPH is a normal part of the aging process for men. It occurs with changes in hormone balance and cell-growth factors as most men naturally grow into an enlarged prostate. Genetics may play a small role in severe cases, but typically BPH is associated with age and hormonal changes. Symptoms may range from mild to severe, depending on the individual.

The UroLift System permanent implants, delivered during a minimally-invasive procedure, act like window curtain tie-backs to hold the lobes of an enlarged prostate open. Patients recover from the procedure quickly, and return to their normal routines with minimal down time. With eliminating lasting sexual side effects and providing lasting relief, UroLift is changing the lives of men everywhere. Good Samaritan Physician Network Urology has been named a UroLift Center of Excellence, meaning these physicians have achieved a higher level of training and experience with the UroLift System.
