DEPARTMENT OF UROLOGY
Welcome to La Peer Health Systems Department of Urology. This particular department of the surgery center focuses on the health of the urinary tract, bladder, and the male reproductive system. Urologists diagnose, treat and aim to prevent the diseases and conditions that can affect the urinary system and reproductive system. Diagnosis is a large and important area of urology, and our physicians, doctors and nurses in this department are fully qualified in carrying out various diagnostic procedures.
What makes La Peer Health Systems Department of Urology great is the combination of expert physicians and cutting edge technology. La Peer uses the latest diagnostic procedures and equipment to ensure a correct diagnosis is made and the treatment is as minimally invasive as possible. The Urology Department is also heavily involved in research and clinical trials carried out by our research team at La Peer Health System, so that we can improve service to our patients and move forward in the medical field to develop new, more successful treatments.
La Peer Health System's Department of Urology uses a variety of tools to diagnose a problem. The urologist may use an ultrasound machine to produce an image of the urinary tract and bladder to give further insight, or an internal examination may also be carried out using an endoscopic camera, which gives an accurate image and is a fantastic diagnostic tool for urological conditions. Whatever your problem is, your urologist at La Peer will work with you to create a treatment plan to ensure a positive outcome. La Peer Health Systems was also named one of the 100 Greatest Places To Work by Becker's ASC Review. We take great pride in our professional and courteous staff and are honored to be included on Becker's 2013 ASC Review.
