Anyone affected by a urinary tract problem deserves the hope and opportunity to live a healthier, happier life.
This is what the urology team at HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital always strives to provide to patients and their families dealing with urologic cancers (prostate, bladder, kidney, testicular), kidney stones, prostate issues, urinary incontinence and pelvic prolapse.
At HSHS Sacred Heart you will find an especially sensitive environment for diagnosing and treating urology conditions.
Above all else, we want you to feel comfortable and know you can trust in our care. We understand and treat urinary tract problems in men, women, and children. Our team works closely with other types of doctors to provide high quality urologic care.
Our talented urologists have performed more than 1,600 minimally invasive surgeries using the da Vinci robot- including the first robotic assisted prostatectomy in our region in 2006. Our urologists regularly use the robot to perform surgeries to treat prostate cancer, kidney cancer, pelvic prolapse and for ureteropelvic junction obstruction of the kidney.
Our urologists regularly treat patients suffering from kidney stones by Extracorporeal Shockwave Lithotripsy (ESWL), ureteroscopy, and percutaneous nephrostolithotomy. These treatments result in quicker return to everyday life for our patients suffering from kidney stones.
ESWL is a remarkable technology using shockwaves focused on stones from outside of the body to break the stones into small pieces that can pass through the urinary tract.
Ureteroscopy involves passing small telescopes into the urinary tract to locate and remove stones.
Percutaneous Nephrostolithotomy (PNL) is used for large stones in the kidneys and involves accessing these stones through the back with a tube placed directly into the kidney.
Our urologists offer a variety of treatment options for men suffering from BPH when medications and conservative options are not effective. These treatments include Greenlight laser ablation of the prostate, Urolift prostatic urethral lift, transurethral resection of the prostate and simple prostatectomy.
Urinary incontinence adversely affects quality of life. At times, procedures can help with treatment. Our urologists use surgically placed slings, nerve stimulator implants and Botox injections for patients who have not had success with more conservative treatments.
Our urologists regularly treat bladder, kidney, prostate, and testicular cancers at HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital. If you have been diagnosed with one of these cancers and are interested in treatment at HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital, contact Western Wisconsin Urology for a consultation.
