The Men’s Urologic Health Conditions We Treat at UMass Memorial

Our board-certified urologists have extensive experience in diagnosing and managing these urologic conditions that affect men only:

  • Cancer of the male reproductive system including prostate, testicular and penile cancers
  • Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH, an enlarged prostate that causes frequent urination and bladder problems)
  • Male incontinence 
  • Male voiding dysfunction 
  • Erectile dysfunction 
  • Male fertility/infertility

Comprehensive Treatment Options For Men’s Health Issues

As specialists, the urologists at UMass Memorial offer a complete range of the latest treatment options for treating these urinary and genitourinary issues in men. Every case is unique, so treatment is tailored to each patient’s diagnosis, health, lifestyle and preferences.

Some of the treatment resources we offer at UMass Memorial include:

  • The da Vinci Surgical System, advanced robotic surgical technology used in treating early prostate cancer with exceptional precision. This minimally invasive approach offers such patient benefits as less pain, faster recovery and improved outcomes.
  • While medication is often the first-line therapy for BPH (enlarged prostate), we also offer minimally invasive transurethral surgery, laser surgery, and using microwave or radiofrequency energy to shrink the prostate.
  • Treatment options for male incontinence include medications that relax the bladder, physical therapy to help strengthen the sphincter muscle, and surgery.
  • Male voiding dysfunction may be treated with bladder retraining, medication, laser therapy or surgery.
  • For the treatment of erectile dysfunction, options include oral medications, penile pumps, implants, hormonal therapies and blood vessel surgery.
  • Vasectomy is a highly effective form of birth control and is performed in an outpatient procedure that generally takes less than an hour. Our urologic surgeons also can perform vasectomy reversal in appropriate cases.
