The field of urology is based on the male and female urinary-tract system. Focus areas include the kidneys, adrenal glands, ureters, urinary bladder, urethra, and the male reproductive organs. Urological surgeries are a focus at our Troy, Michigan surgery center.
A cystoscopy is an endoscopy (telescopic examination) of the urinary bladder via the urethra. It is usually done under local anesthesia and is usually recommended for those with frequent unexplained urinary tract infections, those who have blood in the urine, or those who are suffering from either urinary retention or urinating abnormalities.
