Urology is a specialty in medicine that deals with diseases of the male and female urinary tract (kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra). It also deals 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.

The various fields in Urology practice include Endourology dealing with urinary tract stones and various endoscopic procedures, Urologic Oncology (urological cancers), Reconstructive Urology, Male Sexual Health with Andrology and Male Infertility, Female Urology and Incontinence Surgery, Urodynamics and Neurourology (nervous system control disorders of the genitourinary organs), Pediatric Urology, and Vascular Access surgery in Renal (Kidney) Failure with Transplantation. Urologists are also trained in Laparoscopic Urology (Key-hole Surgery)
