Who is a urologist?
Urologists are medical professionals who treat diseases of the urinary tract in both men and women and the reproductive system in men. They can provide both surgical and non-surgical treatments to the patients, depending on the case.
The urinary tract is the system, which is responsible for filtering all the waste and toxins from the blood, and turning it into the urine, and even storing it. Urologists are responsible to treat any disorder related to any part of the urinary tract. This includes;

  • Kidneys – They are the bean-shaped organs that are the size of an average fist. These organs are responsible to extract the waste from the blood to produce urine.
  • Ureters – These are tubes which carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder.
  • Bladder – It is an empty sac whose responsibility is to store urine.
  • Urethra – It is a tube through which the urine exits the body from the bladder.
  • Adrenal glands – They are located on top of the kidneys and are responsible to release the hormones.

The parts of the male reproductive system include;

  • Penis – The organ which is responsible to flush out the urine and to release the sperm from the body.
  • Prostate – It is the gland which is located beneath the bladder, which adds fluid to the sperm.
  • Testicles – They are located inside the scrotum, which are two oval organs responsible for making the hormone- testosterone and is responsible to produce the sperm.
