- FunctionalUrology Unit
Functional Urology is the subspecialty of Urology that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the function of the lower urinary system, ie the bladder and urethra. Therefore the term Functional Urology includes the subjects of “Female Urology”, “Neurourology and Urodynamics” and even Andrology. Diseases that Functional Urology deals with include urinary disorders in men and women, such as symptoms associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in men, urinary incontinence, urinary incontinence associated with neurological diseases, sexual dysfunction, male infertility, urethral strictures and pelvic organ prolapse in women. Urodynamic testing is one of the basic diagnostic methods of Functional Urology. Pharmaceutical and surgical techniques are employed in the treatment of related diseases.
