Benign enlargement of the Prostate (BPH)/Voiding Issues can disrupt your quality of life or lead to infection, urinary stones, urinary retention or kidney failure.
We correct this problem with treatments ranging from medicine to major surgery. One technique we use is the Transurethral Needle Ablation (TUNA) procedure, a minimally invasive procedure we pioneered here in Maine. We offer this treatment on an outpatient basis, in the comfort of our new facility.
Impotence/Sexual Dysfunction affects more than 30 million men in the U.S.
This common condition may be associated with depression, loss of self-esteem and increased anxiety. After a thorough evaluation of a person's medical history, an examination and laboratory tests, we are able to offer successful treatment options ranging from counseling to surgical treatments.
Urinary Stone Disease causes severe pain, with stones in the kidney, ureter or bladder.
Stone come in many forms, so we have a broad array of treatment options. These include medical management, non-invasive extracorporeal shock wave treatment, endoscopic surgical management with laser, minimally invasive percutaneous treatment and, when necessary, open surgery.
Urinary Incontinence impacts one in seven women over40 years of age in the U.S., at a cost of more than $13 billion to our society.
In close collaboration with area gynecologists, our urologists use a spectrum of treatment options, from medication and behavior modification to surgery. Our specialized equipment includes a netonus chair, which allows patients to be seated and fully clothed -- even reading their favorite magazine -- during pelvic floor strengthening exercises. Options for minimally invasive treatment include collagen injection performed on an outpatient basis.
Urologic Cancer threatens the kidney, ureter, bladder, prostate, penis, urethra and testicles.
These types of cancers are potentially life-threatening, but with accurate, early diagnosis and timely treatment they can be overcome. Through our collaborative relationship with Penobscot BayMedical Center, we operate as a team of urologists or in combination with board-certified general surgeons. This is a higher level of expertise than is offered at other institutions, where resident physicians assist in these procedures.
