A Urologist (یورولوجسٹ) is a specialist doctor who addresses problems and diseases of the urinary tract. They diagnose, treat and manage any urology related conditions. They are trained to perform surgeries and treat the problems affecting the male reproductive system.
Issues related to the urinary tract or the male reproductive system should immediately be brought to a specialist as they may be symptoms indicating more serious issues. Listed below are some of these symptoms:

Most of the patient complaints under the domain of urology are to do with kidney diseases. An overwhelming percentage of the Pakistani population suffers from chronic kidney disease (CKD). Pakistan ranks 8th in the number of annual cases of CKD reported globally. The fact that the health infrastructure is insufficient when it comes to providing a large number of patients with treatment and a lifestyle that promotes kidney disease contributes not just to increased patient turnover, but also makes it even more challenging for urologists to treat their patients effectively. Consequently, around 20,000 Pakistani die from kidney diseases every year. Common causes of chronic kidney disease in Pakistan are:
|Cause||Percentage of Patients|
|Renal Stone disease||8%|
|Adult Polycystic kidney disease||1.4%|
Becoming a urologist (یورولوجسٹ) in Pakistan involves completing an MBBS and the subsequent internship, or house job, as it's commonly known. After this, the training process begins which involves practicing at a hospital and giving the requisite exams, as set by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Pakistan. After being accredited, people who want to further specialize in the subfields of urology do fellowships in their area of interest.
Urologists(یورولوجسٹ) can choose to spend additional 2-3 years on top of their current education, to specialize in one or more of the seven well-known sub-specializations in the field of Urology:
A urologist is also referred to as:
Urologists treat patients that have diseases and disorders of the renal system. This includes problems with kidneys, bladder, urethra, ureters and adrenal glands. In men, they also treat problems associated with the penis, prostate gland and testicles.
Alongside performing physical exams, urologists are also qualified to perform tests like a cystoscopy, which involves putting a thin scope inside of the body to check the state of urethra and bladder.
Specialist doctors also conduct the post-void residual urine test to see the rate of urine flow and how much of it remains in the bladder post urination. Many people suffer from urinary incontinence which involves frequent urination due to incomplete emptying of the bladder.
Another similar test done by urologists is the urodynamic test which measures the volume and pressure inside of the bladder.
Urologists (نطام اخراج کے سپیشلسٹ ڈاکٹر ) are not just physicians but can also perform surgeries. They conduct biopsies whenever a tumour is encountered or suspected. They can also conduct a cystectomy to remove a bladder that has a cancerous mass. Likewise, a laparoscopic surgery is also performed by urologists. Laser therapy is also used on patients who have cancer, kidney stones and BPH.
These doctors also perform surgeries on patients who’s renal systems have been injured. Kidney transplants, surgeries to fix the issues ailing the prostate gland and vasectomies all fall under the urologists’ domain.
