What does a Consultant Urologist do?

Many have heard of a consultant urologist but what does a consultant urologist do?

A consultant urologist is something who treats people suffering from problems and diseases of the urinary tract. They also treat problems associated with the male reproductive system as well as many organs. These organs include the kidneys, prostate, bladder, urethra, testes, penis and the associated glands.

If a patient is suffering from issues that relate to any of these areas, then a urologist can help. They will discuss the problem carry out an examination, run tests and come to a diagnosis.

A urologist has to become a qualified doctor before specialising in this area. Therefore, they have a wide range of skills and knowledge. Some urologists will treat general diseases of the urinary tract. However, there are some that specialise in the following areas:

  • Male infertility – treating problems that can prevent a man from having children
  • Female Urology – focus on treating issues with a female reproductive system and urinary tract
  • Neurourology – dealing with urinary problems that are linked with the nervous system.
  • Urologic oncology – treating cancers associated with the aforementioned organs
  • Paediatric urology – treating urinary issues in children.

What Should You Expect?

It is common for your urologist to have notes from the doctor who referred you. However, they will ask you questions about your problem, your medical history and carry out an examination.

They might also choose to carry out tests. This could include CT Scans, MRI Scans or ultrasound to aid the diagnosis and find the right treatment.

Patients might also undergo some exploratory work. This will involve inserting inside the urinary tract. A urine test can check for bacteria or signs of disease, while a biopsy can check for cancer.

After carrying out all of the relevant tests, patients will then be provided with the correct treatment. Their urologist will also monitor their response to treatment while also identifying other treatments that might be more effective.

Hydrocele Treatment in London

A hydrocele is a collection of fluid around the testicle.

There may be a variety of causes for this, although most commonly the cause is never found. However, other important causes to exclude are infections of the testicle and also testicular tumours.

All patients with a hydrocele should undergo an ultrasound scan of the testes to ensure the underlying testis is normal. Hydroceles can increase to quite dramatic sizes. In most cases, hydroceles can be managed without any treatment and certainly if the hydrocele does not cause any pain or discomfort then this can be managed conservatively without surgery.

In some instances where patients have pain or a hydrocele is very large patients may request to have surgery performed. Surgery is usually performed as a day case or an overnight stay depending upon the size of the hydrocele. We do not advocate aspiration of the hydrocele as this may result in the introduction of infection and also reduce the chances of successful hydrocele repair afterwards. There are two different types of technique of repairing a hydrocele; the Jadoulay’s repair where the lining of the fluid membrane surrounding the testes is everted around the testicle and stitched, or alternatively a Lord’s plication where the membrane is gathered around the testis. In either case there is a risk, of course, that the hydrocele can recur.
