From kidney stones to incontinence, a urological condition can have a major impact on your health and quality of life. So it’s good to know that great care is available right here in Winnemucca.
At Humboldt General Hospital, you can be seen by a board-certified urologist with extensive experience. Our urology clinic has state-of-the-art equipment, and our doctor can perform minimally invasive treatments that often have you home the same day.
Urological conditions we treat
Our urologist diagnoses and treats a wide range of cancerous and noncancerous conditions of the urinary tract, kidneys, bladder, and prostate, including:
- Urinary symptoms, such as difficulty urinating or blood in urine.
- Bladder cancer.
- Erectile dysfunction.
- Kidney, bladder, and urethra stones.
- Recurrent urinary tract infections.
- Urinary incontinence.
- Prostate issues, such as prostate cancer and benign prostate hyperplasia (commonly called an enlarged prostate).
Minimally invasive and nonsurgical urology treatments
Many urological conditions can be managed with medicines and lifestyle changes. But if those things don’t help, we can offer you a minimally invasive or nonsurgical procedure, such as:
- Hormone therapy to treat prostate cancer.
- Microwave thermal therapy or for men with an enlarged prostate. We perform this nonsurgical procedure in the office. It relieves symptoms such as difficult and frequent urination without the need for prostate medicines.
- Laser treatment for kidney stones. After we treat your kidney stone, we can offer you a prevention program that helps you avoid another painful stone.
- No-scalpel vasectomy, which uses only a small skin puncture instead of an incision.
- Transurethral resection of the prostate, or TURP, to treat an enlarged prostate.
