What is urology?

Urology is a part of healthcare that deals with diseases of the urinary tract, including the kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. Urology also deals with the penis, testes, scrotum, and prostate. Many urological procedures are now performed using minimally invasive techniques.

From diagnosis to treatment, The Wesley Hospital offers patients the most comprehensive urological services in Queensland. Our experienced urologists cover an array of subspecialties, and we have a dedicated Urology Unit in the East Wing of the hospital.

At The Wesley, we also provide expert onsite radiology services, including diagnostic and interventional imaging and procedures. Specialised allied health services, including men’s and women’s health physiotherapists are also onsite, providing inpatients and outpatients with excellent care and expert knowledge.

Together on one campus, our team of urologists, radiologists, radiation and medical oncologists provides complete and evidence-based care for patients with prostate cancer. The Wesley Hospital has a strong focus on robotic surgery and is committed to caring for patients by utilising the latest technological advancements. Learn more.
