Urology at Southern Regional
Specialty Surgical Care from Bladder to Prostate
At Southern Regional, our urologists diagnose and treat a wide range of
problems in the urinary system for both men and women.
Our urologists are experienced at treating conditions such as bladder control
problems, urinary tract infections, kidney failure, kidney stones, prostate
enlargement and more. Urinary system problems can be caused by aging,
disease or injury.
There are many new treatment options available today at Southern Regional,
including minimally-invasive procedures that shorten recovery time.

to perform complex surgery using only small incisions.
Symptoms of urinary system problems can be as simple as frequent urination
or blood in the urine. But it's important not to ignore these signs
because urinary tract and kidney diseases are a major cause of illness
and death. More than 26 million Americans over age 20 have chronic kidney
disease, and millions more are at risk, according to the National Kidney
As with every surgery at Southern Regional, each urology surgery patient
is assigned a
care coordinator who walks them through every step in the surgery process, from pre-assessment
to post-operative care.
Prior to surgery, they educate each patient about what to expect of the
upcoming procedure and arrange for any
pre-surgery tests. They also provide support on the day of surgery and keep waiting family
members informed of progress.
After surgery, care coordinators help facilitate communication with the
physicians and assist with follow-up care.
