I went here because I had a kidney stone...I was in an immense amount of pain and went into the Emergency room, it took me about 25 minutes to get in which was not bad compared to previous hospital visits at other places. Let me tell you, the guy at the front was SO GOOD at his job! He typed so fast and checked me in within 2 minutes. Next, the nurses were super friendly and great at calming me down. I ended up having to stay for 3 days due to an infection, and all of the caring nurses, pct's, and the doctors were so friendly to me and helped me through everything. Just to put out a few names, Brenda the RN was amazing, Jason the PCT was amazing, and Dr. Chuang and Dr. Desai are very nice and have a great bedside manor. They answered all of my questions and I have to see them in the near future to get my urinal stent removed...what is going on with my kidney stone may be absolute hell, but I am glad that I was able to be taken care of by such great people.

Is urology surgery for men and women?
Both men and women can be treated by a urologist and undergo urology surgery to treat any conditions they might face related to the bladder, urinary tract, and kidneys. While urology surgeons diagnose and treat conditions related to the male reproductive tract, they also treat problems that women face, such as urinary incontinence, chronic urinary tract infections, kidney problems, and pelvic floor prolapse.
When should I consider urology surgery?
Common symptoms that may indicate the need for urology surgery or urology care include trouble or pain when urinating, pelvic pain, trouble maintaining or getting an erection, and infertility in men. A urologist can likely diagnose your condition and determine if surgical treatment is the appropriate action. All surgeries carry some level of risk, and your physician will be able to help you weigh the potential benefits of all your options.
How long does it take to recover from urology surgery?
The recovery timeframe following urology surgery will depend on the type of surgery you undergo and your overall health and wellness. Most patients can return to their normal activities approximately 2 – 3 weeks following their procedure, provided they continue to avoid heavy lifting and strenuous activity for around six weeks. Your surgical team will go over any post-operative instructions with you to help ensure you recover and heal well.
Is urology surgery covered by insurance?
Your urology surgery may be covered in part by your medical insurance plan. Prior to your procedure, we strongly encourage you to contact your insurance company in order to fully understand your benefits and review your coverage.
