Urologists treat disorders and problems of the urinary tract in men and women, as well as issues of the male reproductive organs.  Common problems include urinary incontinence (when the bladder leaks urine), kidney stones, recurring urinary tract infections, and prostate issues.   Urologists also perform procedures related to male reproduction, such as vasectomy, and may be involved in treating urologic cancers, such as prostate and bladder cancers.
