The term “urologic diseases” describes a wide variety of conditions, all related to the processing and carrying of urine out of our body. Urologic diseases affect men, women, and children of all ages, and affect very specific parts of the body. In females, they involve the urinary tract, while in males they affect the urinary tract and/or the reproductive organs.
As the flagship hospital of UHealth—University of Miami Health System, University of Miami Hospital Urology provides expert diagnosis and treatment for patients suffering from a wide variety of urologic diseases, including incontinence, urinary tract infections, kidney stones, enlarged prostate, erectile dysfunction, bladder cancer, prostate cancer, and more.
Urology patients at the Hospital also benefit from access to groundbreaking clinical trials and translational research being conducted by the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
University of Miami Hospital’s multi-disciplinary care teams include leading specialists using the latest technologies, including minimally-invasive surgical techniques for many procedures, which afford patients quicker recovery times, less pain and bleeding, and shorter hospitalizations.
Building on its growing reputation as a leader in the use of breakthrough technology,
UHealth is the first academic medical center in the world to do a procedure—a prostatectomy performed at University of Miami Hospital—using the new da Vinci® Xi™ Surgical System.
The da Vinci Xi has broader capabilities than prior generations of the da Vinci system, with the adaptability to be used across an array of surgeries in urology, gynecology, thoracic, cardiac, and general surgery. It offers 3D-HD visualization, giving surgeons a highly magnified view, virtually extending their eyes and hands into the patient.
