Dr. Michael Hyman's Services
Urology is medical specialty that focuses on medical and surgical diseases of the urinary tract, including the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra in both genders, as well as the male reproductive system and genitalia.
The da Vinci System represents the latest in surgical and robotics technologies. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System at all times. da Vinci technology translates your surgeon’s hand movements into smaller, precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body.
Focused on cancers of the bladder, kidney, prostate, urethra and testes, the Stanford Urologic Cancer team offers superior diagnostic and screening capabilities, advanced radiation therapy procedures, and surgical expertise honed from years of experience.
The prostate is a gland that is a part of the male reproductive system that wraps around the male urethra near the bladder. Common problems are benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), acute and chronic bacterial prostatitis, and chronic prostatitis (non-bacterial).
These include urine tests, x-rays, and an examination of the bladder wall with a scope called a cystoscope. Treatment depends on the cause of the problem. It may include medicines and, in severe cases, surgery.
Urinary incontinence is not just a medical problem. It can affect emotional, psychological and social life. Many people who have urinary incontinence are afraid to do normal daily activities. They don't want to be too far from a toilet. Urinary incontinence can keep people from enjoying life.
