Urologist is a doctor dealing with issues related to diseases of the male and female urinary tract (kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra) as well as with the male organs (penis, testes, scrotum, prostate, male reproductive organs) as well as certain conditions in the female organs (incontinence, prolapse).
Urologists deal with issues not only directly related to urology as a surgical specialty, but are trained with wisdom in internal medicine, pediatrics, gynecology and other parts of health care as they encounter a wide range of clinical problems. Although they are trained surgeons, they are also specialized in the field of genitourinary medicine, in male sexual health, involved as primary doctors in urology cancers as in the field of Uro-oncology, and are also involved with urological conditions affecting women due to the unique anatomy of the female urinary tract and reproductive system, what is known as the field of Female Urology and Functional Urology. Urologists are also trained in Laparoscopic Urology (Key-hole Surgery)
