Urology

Bozeman Urology Services

The urologists at Bozeman Health specialize in a full range of urological care including the diagnosis and treatment of prostate, kidney, adrenal, testicular and bladder cancers and infections of the kidney, bladder and prostate.

Men’s health services include treatment of BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia), erectile dysfunction and infertility. Urologists also perform procedures for permanent sterilization through vasectomy.

They also treat urinary frequency, urinary incontinence, hematuria (bloody urine), and urinary tract infections in men and women.

MEN’S WELLNESS

Our specialists treat male sexual dysfunction, low testosterone, infertility and benign prostatic hyperplasia. They also provide care for prostate health. About half of men over age 50 will develop an enlarged prostate, and half of those will actually experience problems stemming from the condition. Sometimes enlargement may be caused by prostate cancer. When the prostate enlarges, which often happens with age, urine flow becomes obstructed. Going often and urgently is the body’s response to prostate obstruction. There are several ways to address this condition.

Management of erectile dysfunction ranges from medication to prosthetic devices. Management of infertility in men generally focuses on the surgical correction of various acquired and congenital obstructions within the genital system, and increasingly sophisticated efforts to diagnose and treat the problem of coexisting male subfertility and varicocele.

KIDNEY STONES

Treatment of kidney stones in the urinary tract includes both medical and surgical methods. They can be treated with Extracorporal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (using shock waves to break a stone into small pieces so it can pass from the body), Ureteroscopy (threading a scope through the bladder to the kidney to remove the stone) and Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (a surgical procedure to remove the stone). In addition, advances in diagnosis and management of recurrent stone formation allow our urologists to reduce recurrence.

UROLOGIC ONCOLOGY

Our urologists are skilled in the treatment of malignant disease. Medical and surgical management of solid tumors involve new therapies, in which chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgical treatment are used together. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men. Our specialists focus on detecting, counseling and treating this disease. Bladder cancer occurs in the lining of the bladder, the ureters, or inside the kidneys, and is very treatable when discovered early. Early symptoms are blood in the urine, or urgency of urination. Testicular cancer is rare, but affects mostly adolescents and young adult males.

GENERAL UROLOGY

Our urologists treat incontinence, cystitis, urinary tract infections, overactive bladder and neurogenic bladder (dysfunction due to disease of the central nervous system causing difficulty in urination). As new therapies, both surgical and non-surgical, are developed and approved, they are employed at Bozeman Health Urology.

Incontinence, or any involuntary loss of urine, is an extremely common problem affecting women more than men. There are two types of urinary leakage: stress incontinence and urgency incontinence, both of which become more frequent with age. There are many causes for incontinence and education is important in its treatment.

PEDIATRIC UROLOGY

The urinary tract is affected by congenital anomalies (deviation from what is standard or expected) more than any other organ system. Common congenital problems include cryptorchidism (undescended testicles) and hernia. Our urologists can perform surgical repair of congenital anomalies in children.

UROLOGICAL SURGERIES

  • Laparoscopic Surgery
  • Extracorporal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL)
  • Ureteroscopy, laser lithotripsy
  • Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy
  • Prostate cancer screening
  • Vasectomy
  • Circumcision
  • Greenlight Laser Surgery for prostate
  • Prostate biopsy
  • Advanced urodynamics (assessment of bladder and urethra performance)
  • Trans-obturator sling (for stress incontinence)
  • Penile implant
  • Artificial urethral sphincter
  • Botox injections
  • Neuromodulation (electrical stimulation of the nervous system)
  • Pediatric Services
