The prostate doctor is called a urologist or urology specialist. The urologist diagnoses and treats not only prostate problems but the kidney with kidney stones treatment (calculos renales) and kidney surgery (nefrectomia) for a renal cell carcinoma (cancer rinon) kidney mass. The urology specialists also diagnose bladder symptoms and frequently perform the bladder prolapse surgery, remove cancer bladder tumors (cancer vejiga), bladder surgery for stress incontinence (incontinencia urinaria), diagnose and treat testicular cancer symptoms (cancer testiculo), erectile dysfunction causes (problemas ereccion), and vasectomy procedures. When treating the prostate it is imperative for the doctor to have full knowledge and experience of the surrounding organs of the genitourinary system.
The prostate doctors at the Urology Specialists South Florida offices offer many solutions for enlarged prostate (BPH) such as the traditional transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP), also called roto-rooter, to remove the prostate tissue that is blocking the urethra and causing urinary retention, frequent urination, nocturia, urinary hesitancy, and a weak stream. Our urological surgery team also uses the other prostate surgery methods to remove prostatic tissue such as TURP button, green light laser, transurethral needle ablation (TUNA), and transurethral microwave therapy (TUMT).
The prostate website has been created by the world renowned Urology Specialists in Miami Florida. These urologists all specialize in urologic surgery using open surgery, laparoscopic surgery and robotic surgery (da Vinci surgery). Da Vinci prostatectomy has been the specialty of Dr. Fernando Bianco who is the founder and Chief of Robotic Surgery for Columbia University Division of Urology at Mount Sinai Medical Center on Miami Beach, Florida. Our other urology specialists include the founder of Urology Specialists Dr. Edward Gheiler who has treated over 60,000 patients with urological problems. Dr. Gheiler diagnoses impotence causes (impotencia masculina) and also perform penile surgery to implant a penile prosthesis. The Urology Specialists are some of only a handful of surgeons who perform the robotic multiple kidney tumor removal (partial nephrectomy). He is also one of the very few urologic surgeons that will perform a robotic complex kidney tumor removal near the renal arteries or by the colleting tubes without taking out the entire kidney which is what the majority of urologist in the US and the world do. Studies have shown that patients that have their entire kidney removed have a 25% increased risk of cardiac death.
The prostate doctors in our Miami urology center are also urologic oncologists that specialize in cancer of the urinary system. Our Urologists have been trained and have become leaders in the leading medical schools, hospitals, and national institutions which include, Yale University, Columbia University, University of Miami, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, Palmetto General Hospital, National Cancer Institute/ National Institutes of Health in Washington and the George Washington Cancer Institute.
