Although a vasectomy is a form of permanent birth control for men, women have an important role in the process. 

When it comes to undergoing a vasectomy procedure, the pre-operative prep and aftercare are just as important as the procedure itself! Even though it’s a minimally invasive procedure that only takes about 30 minutes to complete, our physicians want to inform patients that before and after care should be completed in a fashion similar to a regular surgery. 

Vasectomies often have a bad reputation in the movies and other entertainment mediums, but it’s important to note that this procedure is relatively simple and virtually painless. 

There’s no telling how long vasectomies and March Madness have been a perfect pair, but we do know that urologists across the country have a long history of offering specials to men who undergo the procedure during the tournament. 
 

Learning how to shoot a 3-pointer in basketball is surprisingly similar to getting a vasectomy! 

When patients still struggle to control their bladder after taking medication to address the issue, the Affiliated Urologists team may recommend sacral nerve stimulation. 

Since urology does not often come up in day-to-day conversation, many people are left in the dark about how often they should urinate. 

Bladder ultrasounds are great diagnostic tool because of how much information our physicians are able to gather. 

Prostate cancer occurs when cancerous cells develop in tissues found in the prostate. Each year, approximately one in every five men will be diagnosed. 

Are there times when you’re going about your day-to-day activities and you suddenly have to use the restroom? Of course, this is normal if you had a lot to drink or have been holding it for a while. 

Having to use the restroom when you first wake up is very normal, but if the urge to go to the restroom is so strong that it wakes you up in the middle of the night, you may have a problem. 

New patients are always welcome.
