Urology is the study of the female urinary system and male genitourinary tract. Put simply, these are parts of the body that produce, store and get rid of urine, as well as the parts involved in sexual function for men.
So urology is the study of the kidneys, bladder, ureters, urethra, prostate, penis and testicles.
A quarter (25%) of all surgical referrals to hospital are for urological conditions, plus 10% of all GP appointments are for urological issue. That’s a huge amount!
It’s not getting any better either. Hospital appointments have increased by 20% in recent years.
