In addition to our robust urologic oncology program, MultiCare Urology treats a full range of conditions that affect the kidney, bladder and reproductive systems. Some of the most common conditions that we treat include:
- Urinary Incontinence — urinary incontinence can be caused by a number of factors in both men and women, but has many treatment options, both medical and surgical.
- Kidney Stones —Kidney stones are relatively common and many patients pass these stones on their own, while others may require medication or even surgery. Our urologists help determine what type of kidney stones you have and provide you with recommendations for the best treatment options.
- Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy or Hyperplasia (BPH) AKA enlarged prostate — Prostate enlargement happens to almost all men as they get older. It is a non-cancerous condition, but, as the gland grows, it can press on the urethra (the tube that empties urine from the bladder) and cause urination and bladder problems. We help men monitor their condition and provide them with treatment options when BPH symptoms become noticeable.
- Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) — Both men and women can develop UTIs, which is an umbrella term for an infection anywhere along the urinary tract, including the bladder , kidneys, ureters (the tubes that take urine from each kidney to the bladder) or urethra. UTIs are typically treated with antibiotics, once they have been diagnosed.
- Erectile Dysfunction (ED) —There can be a number of underlying causes behind ED, ranging from heart disease and high blood pressure to prescription medication side effects. We provide a thorough diagnostic exam to make sure the cause of the ED is being treated, not just the symptoms.
