Urological Conditions Treated at Tampa General Hospital Include Kidney Stones, Enlarged Prostate, Pelvic Prolapse and Urological Cancers
Tampa General Hospital treats a wide range of urological conditions, from infections and incontinence to tumors and urological cancers. We treat both male and female urological issues, as well as geriatric conditions that develop later in life.
With an experienced team of urologists on staff, we are able to match each patient with a physician who specializes in treating their precise diagnosis. Collectively, our team has experience treating:
- General urological conditions such as urinary tract infections, incontinence, an overactive bladder, kidney stones, kidney cancer, bladder prolapse, and bladder cancer
- Male-specific conditions such as prostatitis, testicular cancer, enlarged prostate (aka benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH), low testosterone, erectile dysfunction, and male infertility
- Female-specific conditions such as pelvic organ prolapse, vaginal prolapse, bladder/bowel fistulas, and female sexual dysfunction
Our urologists also work closely with other specialists at TGH, including oncologists and gynecologists, when treating urological conditions such as cancer or genitourinary issues. We also have a specially trained intensivist on staff for situations where urgent care is required. Our comprehensive, multispecialty approach is just one of the reasons that we are routinely able to produce better-than-expected patient outcomes.
Due to our survival rates, advanced technologies, nurse-to-patient ratios and extensive level of expertise with a wide range of urological conditions, we have been recognized as a state-certified provider of advanced trauma care and are certified for compliance with high nursing standards by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
Tampa General Hospital first in Florida to use new single-incision robot
Tampa General Hospital is the first hospital in Florida to offer the most advanced robotic technology that involves cutting just one small incision to allow for a faster and less painful recovery for urologic procedures.
The da Vinci SP system allows a camera and three surgical instruments to fit inside a tube that passes through a single one-inch wide incision, instead of the four required by the current generation of robots. This “single port” allows surgeons to use a minimally invasive approach, even for complex procedures, that combines deep access with flexible camera visibility and precision.
