Urology is a medical and surgical specialty that provides treatment options and management of kidney stones, urinary tract infections, prostate enlargement, urinary stress incontinence, infertility, neurogenic bladder and cancer of the prostate, kidney, ureter, urinary bladder, testes and urethra. Oftentimes urology overlaps into the fields of pediatrics, internal medicine, gynecology, nephrology and endocrinology.
FHN offers lithotripsy, a procedure in which kidney stones are broken into fine particles using ultrasound so that they can be passed in the urine.
