Introduction

Urologists are doctors who diagnose and treat diseases and disorders of the urinary tract. They treat both men and women, but urologists are the go-to specialists for men who are experiencing reproductive system issues while women must see a gynecologist for reproductive system treatment. 

Urologists may perform surgery and they work in a variety of settings from private clinics and dedicated urology centers to general hospitals. Urologists perform diagnostic tests and also make treatment recommendations based on their findings.
