Urology is a branch of medicine that focuses on the medical diseases and disorders of the male and female urinary tract systems, as well as the male reproductive organs. The organs under the domain of urology include the kidneys, adrenal glands, ureters, urinary bladder, urethra, and male reproductive organs.

Because the urinary and reproductive tracts are closely linked, the disorders of one often affect the other. Conditions that can be treated include urinary tract infections, benign prostatic hyperplasia, bladder or prostate cancer, kidney stones, congenital abnormalities, traumatic injury, and stress incontinence.
