What Does It Mean to Be a Urology Center of Excellence?

The problem is, there are so many options available, particularly when it comes to choosing an excellent urologist in Miami.

Men in Miami Should Turn to a #Urologist for Low Testosterone

It’s no secret that aging isn’t for the faint of heart. Men who enjoy activities like golf, hiking, tennis or any other physical activity may find their energy level and drive beginning in decrease as they reach middle aged life. This is because the levels of testosterone, a steroid #hormone produced by the testes, start to decline as men age. This used to be known as simply getting older, but new #treatments for #lowtestosterone mean that many middle aged men are regaining their youthful energy and enjoying life once more.

Testosterone is a crucial part of male growth and development, particularly during puberty. Young men have a wealth of testosterone which contributes to factors like energy level and #sexdrive. Middle aged men may find that they aren’t as interested in the same things as their younger selves because testosterone levels begin to decrease. As advancements in the field of #health and medicine have led to longer lives, many don’t want to feel old and tired when they are only halfway through their life. As a result, many are turning to a new form of treatment which targets Low T. 

#TestosteroneReplacement therapy is the process of supplementing the testosterone the body produces naturally. The treatment has shown great promise in helping improve energy levels, stopping erectile dysfunction and generally improving the health and #wellness of men with low testosterone levels. However, not everyone can benefit from testosterone therapy as there have been an increase in the number of testosterone patients who suffer from serious health problems like heart attack and stroke. Making sure your heart and the rest of your body is in good health is an important thing to establish before starting testosterone therapy. Visiting a urologist in Miami with an excellent reputation for patient care should be someone’s top priority if they are interested in hormone therapy. 

Urology Specialty Care in Miami has a team of #doctors and urology experts who can help explain the benefits of testosterone and decide whether or not it’s right for your situation. As the urology center of excellence in Miami, Urology Specialty Care can answer any questions you have about testosterone therapy so call today! Anyone who is looking for the best urologists in Florida are urged to schedule an appointment with the #professionals at Urology Specialty Care.

Kidney stones are small, hard deposits made of mineral and acid salts that form inside your kidneys. They can affect many different areas of your urinary tract, from your kidneys to your bladder. Passing kidney stones can be quite painful, which is why it is recommended that you see a qualified #urologist to help you deal with this uncomfortable ailment.

There are plenty of medical conditions which cause pain, but few that can be as excruciating and unbearable as #kidneystones. Also known as renal calculus, kidney stones are defined as a crystal aggregate of certain minerals like calcium created in the kidneys. The pain results from larger stone as they pass through the urinary tract. The vast majority of kidney stones are experienced by men, but plenty of women have felt the wrath of stones that cause severe pain and discomfort as well.

The science of kidney stone diagnosis and removal has been around for thousands of years, but those Ancient Egyptians unlucky enough to suffer from them were in a far worse spot than someone living in the modern age. While the Egyptians did have a strong grasp of human anatomy, the risk of infection and other complications was far greater than in a hospital today. Thanks to advanced surgical techniques which utilize precision lasers and robotic surgical machines that look like something out of a science fiction film, stones in the modern age can be removed from the kidney without much trouble at all.

Percutaneous stone removal involves making a small cut in the patient’s back in which a scope is inserted and a similar cut made in the kidney. Once in the kidney, the surgeon can break up and remove the stone fairly easily. Most small kidney stones tend to pass all on their own, but for larger stones, the percutaneous method is about the easiest and non-invasive method available today.

Having a specialist in the field of kidney health and kidney stone removal is essential for a successful surgery. At Urology Specialty Care, Dr. Robert Puig and Dr. Yekutiel Sandman are experts when it comes to operating the da Vinci robotic surgery system and both have ample experience relieving the pain and discomfort of kidney stones for the people of #Miami. As the urology center of excellence in Miami, Urology Specialty Care is dedicated to offering the best quality care for all patients.

Aside from the horrific pain in the abdomen and lower back area that usually accompanies a kidney stone, many patients also experience discoloration of the urine, nausea and vomiting, fever and a frequent urge to urinate.  Kidney stones can be dealt with easy enough, but left to their own devices they can be life-threatening, so if you’re experiencing the above symptoms then it’s time to schedule an appointment with one of the experts at Urology Specialty Care.

Did You Know Botox Can Help Treat Overactive Bladder Syndrome?

When someone mentions Botox, most people’s thoughts immediately jump to the overly-tight celebrity faces in Hollywood. Botulinum, or Botox as it’s known commercially, has been used in the field of cosmetics since the late 1980’s as a treatment against the wrinkles and lines that appear on our faces as we age. However, a new wrinkle in Botox’s power as actual #medicine   has recently come to light and the #urologists   at Urology Specialty Care in Miami are proud to be on the cutting edge of all the latest and greatest treatment methods.

The frequent and sometimes uncontrollable urge to urinate is a common problem, particularly as people age. In January 2013, the FDA approved the use of Botox as a legitimate way to treat overactive #bladder  and all the embarrassing inconvenience that comes with it. Overactive Bladder Syndrome (OAB) is a urological problem with symptoms such as the frequent need to go, urge incontinence and nocturia (waking up several times per night to go). While it may not be life threatening, OAB can be debilitating, embarrassing and heavily stigmatized.

Around 33 million Americans suffer from #OAB   and they often have to tailor their lives around being close to a bathroom at all times. Thanks to Botox, those 33 million people no longer have to worry! Much like a facial injection, Botox injected directly into the bladder can relax the muscles and ultimately increase its capacity for urine storage. That means the urge to go becomes far less frequent and incontinence is reduced because there are less muscle contractions in the bladder causing leakage. Most incontinence is cause by the detrusor muscle contracting when it shouldn’t be. Botox helps relax that muscle and stop leaking from occurring unexpectedly.

Using a cystoscope, the skilled urologists at Urology Specialty Care can see the inside of a patient’s bladder while making the precise Botox injection. The injections can relax the bladder for anywhere between four and six months depending on the patient. Many take medications called anticholinergics for OAB, but for those who cannot take the medication for whatever reason, Botox is an option that shows legitimate results.

The expert doctors and staff at Urology Specialty Care are happy to say that they’ve treated many patients suffering from OAB with #Botox   and the results have be very encouraging. Many patients are able to take back some freedom in their lives because they no longer need to plan their entire day around where the closest bathroom is going to be. Urology Specialty Care is known as the urology center of excellence in Miami thanks to their dedication to patient care and being up to date on the best practices when it comes to urological health. Schedule an appointment today to learn more about the procedure and discuss giving Botox a try for your overactive bladder!

Overall Health is a Priority at Urology Specialty Care

Living a #healthy   life goes far beyond regularly visiting Urology Specialty Care for all of your urological needs. The doctors at Urology Specialty Care are experts in the field of #Urology  , but all those years of medical school mean they are uniquely qualified to help patients improve their overall health as well. Having a squeaky clean prostate, urinary tract or kidneys is great, but if you’re not eating right, getting regular exercise and even getting an adequate amount of sleep, all the work done by your trusted urologists is for naught. Healthy living is something an individual must commit to, but the skilled doctors at Urology Specialty Care can point you in the right direction. Changing your habits to reflect a healthy lifestyle isn’t easy, particularly for someone who has lived a certain way for a long time. However, with help from qualified doctors, anybody can live a healthy and happy life.

One of the most poignant stories of someone who was able to make significant changes in their lifestyle later in life is former President Bill Clinton. Known for his southern charm and love of a good home cooked meal, President Clinton would be the first to say his eating and #exercise   habits during his youth were horrendous. It wasn’t until well after leaving office that the President began to see the effects of his poor dietary choices. A heart disease diagnosis was enough to motivate President Clinton to cut meat, dairy products and fish out of his diet entirely. That’s right, the man who allegedly bought a dozen doughnuts for himself at a campaign stop in New Hampshire is now a practicing vegan.

One thing is for sure, the change is remarkable. In recent interviews, the President has revealed he is thirty pounds lighter and has more energy than ever before. He said there are staffers twenty years younger than himself who struggle to keep up with his jam-packed schedule. While the President certainly committed himself to the huge lifestyle change, even doing something as simple as going for a walk everyday can have vast implications on your overall health. Starting with something small and working your way up to the gym membership or all vegan diet is often a great way to get in the swing of healthy living.

Urology Specialty Care has a reputation for being the urology center of excellence in #Miami   thanks to their doctors’ dedication to helping their patients in every way possible. Doctors Rober Puig, Cosme Gomez, Yekutiel Sandman and the rest of the staff at Urology Specialty Care promote healthy living at every junction. Many of the issues people have with their urological health can be the result of poor diet and a sedentary lifestyle so encouraging healthy habits is a large part of the process at Urology Specialty Care.

What Does a Prostate Cancer Diagnosis Really Mean?

Are you one of the more than 238,000 men who are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year? If so, then visiting a urology center of excellence in Miami, FL like #Urology Specialty Care is the best decision you can make. If it’s possible for such a thing as “good cancer” to exist, then prostate cancer is about as close as it gets. #Prostatecancer is one of the slowest growing cancers (although there are exceptions) and most men don’t develop noticeable symptoms until they are well past middle aged. Usually the symptoms of prostate cancer mimic those of BPH, or benign prostatic hyperplasia, which is when the prostate is enlarged making urination difficult or painful. You’ve probably seen commercials advertising BPH medication where men are always “going”.
One of the biggest risk factors for prostate cancer is simply age. The disease is rarely found in men under the age of fifty, and even then the disease is most likely in its very early stages. Most men who are diagnosed with prostate cancer are around 70 years old. A skilled urologist and prostate cancer expert, like Dr. Cosme Gomez of Urology Specialty Care, would consider all options for a patient recently diagnosed with prostate cancer. In many cases, there is no treatment necessary at all. Since the cancer is often so slow in developing, it’s likely that symptoms won’t be a serious problem. Most elderly men have other, more pressing health problems to deal with anyway.
However, men who develop prostate cancer who are young enough where symptoms may become problematic are urged to visit an experienced urologist in Miami, FL who can recommend either surgery or radiation therapy to stop the cancer in its tracks. Dr. Gomez is one such urologist who’s seen countless cases of prostate cancer and can offer expert advice on the subject. Dr. Gomez and the whole team at Urology Specialty Care in Miami strive to create an inviting atmosphere for their patients. Visiting the doctor for prostate cancer can be a stressful, but you’re in excellent hands with the doctors and nurses at Urology Specialty Care. Call today to schedule an appointment with one of the outstanding #urologists today!
