Urology, also known as genitourinary surgery, is the branch of medicine that focuses on surgical and medical diseases of the male and female urinary-tract system and the male reproductive organs.
Urologic diseases or conditions include urinary tract infections, kidney stones, bladder control problems and prostate problems, among others. Some urologic conditions last only a short time, while others are long-lasting.
There are a variety of things that cause urinary incontinence, some of them being: diabetes, childbirth, weakened bladder muscles or sphincter muscles, spinal cord injury, certain diseases, and even severe constipation. Oftentimes, simple lifestyle changes can help get urinary incontinence under control.
Urological supplies are products designed for people who have urinary retention and need help removing urine from the body. Common urological supplies include products such as catheters, drainage bags and insertion trays.
