Urologic diseases and conditions we treat
We treat patients for urologic diseases such as kidney stones, enlarged prostate, prostate cancer, urinary incontinence, urinary tract infections and more.
Bladder and prostate cancer: Bladder cancer is an overgrowth of cells that typically begins in the inside lining of the bladder. Prostate cancer occurs when cells grow faster than normal in the prostate gland. It occurs exclusively in males.
Bladder prolapse: This occurs in women when the bladder droops into the vagina. It happens when the front wall of the vagina, which supports the bladder, is weakened by childbirth or aging.
Blood in urine (heamturia): This condition has a variety of causes that include urinary tract infections, kidney stones, enlarged prostate in men or some medications. If you have blood in your urine, you should seek medical care to determine its cause.
ED non-surgical management (erectile dysfunction): Men can consider non-surgical treatments for ED including psychological counseling, penis pumps and medications. Some lifestyle changes that may help include smoking cessation, weight loss and exercise.
Interstitial cystitis: Also known as painful bladder syndrome, this condition involves bladder pressure, pain and sometimes pelvic pain. Individuals with interstitial cystitis urinate more frequently due to this pelvic nerve dysfunction.
Kidney and ureteral stones: These are formed when crystals separate from the urine and form a mass.
Overactive bladder (OAB): OAB can cause an individual to urinate eight or more times per day or two or more times per night. It produces a sudden urge to urinate and can be managed with medication to calm the bladder nerves.
Prostatitis (infection of the prostate): This condition in men involves inflammation of the prostate gland. It is often caused by a bacterial infection.
Testicular cancer: Testicular cancer occurs in the testes and can cause symptoms such as a lump or enlargement in either testicle, heaviness in the scrotum, pain in either testicle and back pain.
Urinary incontinence: Urinary incontinence is a loss of bladder control. It is often caused by extra stress on bladder muscles, such as occurs during laughing or coughing, or by urinary muscle spasms.
Urinary tract infections: A UTI can be caused by fungi, viruses and bacteria. They are the second most common infection in adults.

One of the advanced treatment options that you can find at HCA Houston Cypress Fairbanks is lithotripsy treatment, a procedure that uses shock waves to break up stones that form in the kidneys or ureters.
Shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) is generally used to remove kidney stones that are causing bleeding, pain, urinary tract infections or damage to your kidneys. Through the use of lithotripsy, the broken up kidney stone can be passed naturally through the urinary system.
SWL is a noninvasive technique performed from outside the body. Generally, some form of anesthesia is used to help keep your body still and reduce discomfort. It’s typically performed on an outpatient basis.
