General urological care includes treatment for a wide spectrum of diseases and conditions, such as urinary tract infections, evaluation for urologic cancers (including prostate, bladder, kidney, testes, adrenal, etc.), pain or swelling of the scrotum or testicles, kidney stones, urinary incontinence and sexual dysfunction. Special expertise in robotic surgery and laparoscopic (minimally invasive) surgery is available. Our specialists also offer expertise in complex urological problems, such as:

  • Treatment for voiding dysfunction due to a neurological condition (stroke, spina bifida or spinal cord injury)
  • Urinary and penile prosthesis
  • Extracorporeal lithotripsy, a noninvasive treatment for kidney stone disease

Enlarged prostate

An enlarged prostate, also referred to as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), is associated with urinary urgency, frequency and/or a weak or slow stream. Some patients also experience complex voiding dysfunction and urinary retention, which can lead to urinary tract infections.

Depending on the size of the enlarged prostate, there are a variety of treatment options available. The Methodist Hospital was the first institution in the Texas Medical Center to offer GreenLight Laser Therapy. This innovative surgical treatment makes use of the standard surgical procedure known as transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) to treat an enlargement of the prostate while decreasing the risk factors. During the recovery period, the patient may experience some common problems, such as problems urinating, incontinence, bleeding and erections.

Erectile Dysfunction

Male sexual arousal is a complex process that involves the brain, hormones, emotions, nerves, muscles and blood vessels. Erectile dysfunction, also known as impotence, can result from physical, psychological or a combination of both. Common causes include:

  • Chronic illnesses, such as diabetes
  • Stress, poor diet and lack of exercise
  • Certain prescription medications
  • Treatments for prostate cancer or enlarged prostate
  • Neurological disorders
  • Surgeries or injuries that affect the pelvic area or spinal cord

Erectile dysfunction can be treated in a variety of ways including:

  • Lifestyle changes
  • Medications
  • Microsurgery to repair circulation problems
  • Hormonal therapy
  • Specially designed penile implants
  • Injection therapy
  • The MUSE urethral suppository treatment
