Urology Evaluation and Treatment of the Urinary Tract System
Advanced Care for Adults
Urology is the specialty of medicine involving evaluation and treatment of urinary tract issues and diseases, also including benign diseases. This encompasses kidney stones and urination dysfunction, as well as malignant diseases of the kidney, prostate and bladder.
Our Midwest Surgical Specialists physicians offer office evaluations and office-based procedures. If any type of urologic surgery is needed, many of our physicians specialize in minimally invasive surgeries--including robotic surgeries--along with a variety of endoscopic procedures for stones and urinary tract dysfunctions.

Prostate Exams and Prostate Cancer
Prostate cancer is 100% treatable if detected early with a simple, prostate exam.
Discuss having a prostate exam and PSA blood test with your primary care provider if you are a man who is:
- Age 50 or older
- Age 40 or older with a first-degree relative diagnosed with prostate cancer
- African-American age 45 or older with a first-degree relative diagnosed with prostate cancer
Not everyone experiences symptoms of prostate cancer. Many times, signs of prostate cancer are first detected by a doctor during a routine check-up. A simple exam can save your life.
