What is Urology?

Urology is a specialized field of medicine that deals with the urinary and reproductive systems, including their development and function before and after birth. The urinary system eliminates waste in the form of urine, consisting of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. A doctor who diagnoses and treats conditions that affect these areas is known as a urologist.
