Urology and Men's Health

Our urologists don't just focus on your urology condition; they use a holistic approach to address your whole person. Why? Because they found the men they were treating for prostate cancer were, in fact, more likely to die from heart disease than their cancer. And one of the highest predictors of a heart attack? Sexual dysfunction.

Poor health and obesity also increase your risk for kidney stones, incontinence, bladder cancer and impotence.

So our urologists started the Charlottesville Men's Four Miler: To help men take their health seriously. Learn more about the beginnings of this annual race.

    You can get a free prostate cancer screening test at UVA if you're between the ages of 50 and 70. Men in high-risk groups, including those over 40 with a family history of the disease and African Americans, can also get screened for free.

Treatment Advances

Lithotripsy for Kidney Stones

We were one of the first hospitals in the nation to use lithotripsy treatment for kidney stones. This non-surgical procedure uses shock waves to break stones into fragments small enough to be passed through normal urination. For larger stones or to treat more complex stone disease, we also offer laser or ultrasound treatments to destroy stones.

Cryotherapy for Prostate and Kidney Cancer

  • Cryotherapy is available for treatment of prostate and kidney cancer. This non-surgical technique is performed by inserting freezing argon gas into the tumor through a thin needle. The resulting ice then destroys all cancerous tissue in the affected area. The procedure causes little, if any, harm to surrounding tissue.

Urology for Children

Our pediatric experts provide friendly care for your child's urological needs.

At UVA Children's Hospital, we provide the most advanced surgical treatments available for a wide range of urological conditions.
