Urology focuses on the diseases and disorders of the kidneys and the urinary tract in both sexes. In addition to the kidneys, the focus is therefore on the bladder, the ureter and the urethra - and especially on diagnosis and therapy.

Especially in men, urologists look at the urogenital system, i.e. the male genitals. These include the prostate, the testicles and the epididymis, the vas deferens, the seminal vesicles and of course the penis. Urologists in private practice or working in a clinic have a wide range of diagnostic procedures at their disposal.

These include the detection of prostate cancer and the diagnosis and treatment of all kinds of diseases of the urinary tract and the male reproductive organs. The range of services offered by urologists includes conservative treatments - for example with medication - as well as surgeries, such as prostatectomy.
