Tampa General Hospital Treats Many Urology Problems Commonly Experienced by Men
Tampa General Hospital treats many urology problems commonly experienced by men. We offer a comprehensive range of diagnostic tests and treatments in one location, allowing patients to access all the urological services they need in one convenient setting. And, because TGH has many other experienced medical professionals, including oncologists and fertility specialists, available to assist with complex cases, we are able to offer a comprehensive, multispecialty approach to urological care. This approach results in patient outcomes that routinely exceed expectations and is one of the reasons TGH has been named one of America's Best Hospitals for Urology by U.S. News & World Report.
Our urologists specialize in treating the following male urological conditions:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Low testosterone
- Prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate)
- Benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate)
- Male infertility
- Testicular cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Male sexual dysfunction
Men who are seeking treatment for general urology problems, such as urinary incontinence or kidney stones, can also receive expert treatment at TGH. We welcome patients who are experiencing symptoms and do not yet have an official diagnosis, as well as patients who are seeking treatment for a known urological issue.
Because we offer an advanced range of surgical and non-surgical treatments, we are able to tailor each patient’s plan to his exact needs. Clinical services include minimally invasive and robotic surgery, male reconstructive surgery, pharmaceutical therapy, microwave therapy, and prostate artery embolization.
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.
