What type of procedure does a Urologist perform?
When you visit a urologist, they’ll start by doing one or more of these tests to find out what condition you have:
Imaging tests, such as a CT Scan, MRI Scan, or Ultrasound, allow them to see inside your urinary tract.
They can order a cystogram, which involves taking x-ray images of your bladder.
Your urologist can perform a Cystoscopy. This involves using a thin scope called a cystoscope to see the inside of your urethra and bladder.
They can perform a post-void residual urine test to find out how fast urine leaves your body during urination. It also shows how much urine is left in your bladder after you urinate.
They can use a urine sample to check your urine for bacteria that cause infections.
They can perform urodynamic testing to measure the pressure and volume inside your bladder.
Urologists are also trained to perform different types of surgery. This may include performing:
Biopsies of the bladder, kidneys, or prostate.
A cystectomy, which involves removing the bladder, to treat cancer.
Extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy, which involves breaking up kidney stones so they can remove them more easily.
