Comprehensive, Personalized Care
Your UC San Diego Health urologist may recommend screening tests,
diagnostic imaging (including ultrasound) and other services to accurately diagnose your ailment. Using advanced technology, we offer the most up-to-date treatment options. They may include medications, nonsurgical approaches and advanced surgical techniques, such as reconstructive surgery and minimally invasive procedures.
We then customize your treatment plan based on your symptoms and specific needs, with a focus on your comfort. We collaborate with experts in other specialties, including oncologists, radiologists and
pelvic floor physical therapists, to provide comprehensive care. We also devise a long-term follow-up care plan, as needed, to hasten your recovery.
