Urology

 

The Division of Urology at Maimonides, created four decades ago, is expanding services to meet the increasing needs of Brooklynites. Treatment of urological conditions is now often done with the help of state-of-the-art technology in the hands of highly trained physicians.

The Division of Urology, is in a new phase of growth, with the construction of a 4-floor dedicated Institute of Urology at Maimonides. Other steps towards the future include:

  • A new dedicated OR (summer of 2007), in the ambulatory and surgical unit, with a modern Siemens fluoroscopy table.
  • A dedicated urology operating nursing team with a nurse team leader.
  • Modernized equipment, such as a green light laser for benign prostatic hyperplasia, a surgical microscope and new equipment in the urodynamics lab.
  • Expansion and further depth of subspecialties.

Specialties include: An expertise in sexual medicine, male and female urinary incontinence, erectile dysfunction, Peyronie’s disease, urethral strictures and genital abnormalities, other areas of specialty include:

Urologic oncology: 

This area of expertise includes prostate, bladder, kidney, adrenal and testicular cancer. Our physicians are pioneers in the application of robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgical techniques in urologic procedures, minimizing the trauma of more traditional surgery and facilitating recovery.

Pediatric urology: 

This area of expertise includes the diagnosis and treatment of congenital abnormalities and acquired illnesses in newborns, infants and children. Our physicians have more than 70 years of experience caring for complex urological problems in children. Conditions can include bladder extrophy, hypospadias, hernias, vesico-ureteral reflux and uretero-pelvic junction obstructions.

Urinary stone disease:  

Our physicians are specialists in female urology and incontinence, as well as urinary stone disease.

General urology:  

The Importance of Working Closely with Primary Care Physicians
The Maimonides Division of Urology understands that the primary care physician will often be the first to detect urological symptoms. It is crucially important for us to build alliances and closely collaborate with referring doctors. As a result, a conference for primary care practitioners is in the planning stages which will highlight urological conditions and illnesses, such as PSA testing, overactive bladder, erectile dysfunction, testosterone deficiency and hematuria.
