Houston Physicians’ Hospital Department of Urology
Houston Physicians’ Hospital’s Urologists are specialized to treat diseases of the male and female urinary tract. However, they can also treat and diagnose diseases of the kidneys, adrenal glands, ureters, urinary bladder, urethra, and the male reproductive organs. Every Urologist at Houston Physicians’ Hospital possesses an extensive knowledge of internal medicine, pediatrics, gynecology, and other specialties to treat a wide range of urology problems.
Types of Urological Diseases
A urologist can help with many urological diseases that interfere with your life. The most common diseases treated by urologists include:
- Urologic and prostate cancers
- Urinary tract infections
- Kidney stone
- Urinary incontinence
A primary care physician may be able to treat some minor urologic issues. However, if your symptoms do not go away, or cause disruption to your life, it is best to see a urologist who can deal with more complex issues.
Symptoms of a Urology Problem
The most common symptoms of a urology problem include:
- Blood in urine
- Burning sensation when urinating
- Frequent urge to urinate
- Leaking urine
If symptoms are not severe, at-home treatments may be able to help a urology problem. However, patients with severe symptoms should be checked by a Urologist.

The Excretion System
The execration system is made up of many organs, including the kidneys, large intestine, liver, skin, and lungs. This system allows the body to rid itself of waste. By removing waste, the body is able to cleanse itself of toxins that can lead to health problems. The excretion of waste from the body is essential to the overall health of your body. Disruption of the excretion system can lead to discomfort, and even affect your everyday life. Waste must excrete from the body, but in a healthy way. A urologic specialist can help treat and diagnose the underlying causes of excretion system disorder and provide a treatment plan that can help patients improve their life.
