Urology provides diagnostic, treatment and surgical services to patients
with disorders of the urologic and reproductive systems. The Urology Center,
located on the hospital's first floor, has facilities for the minimally
invasive prostate, bladder and kidney stone treatment.
The urodynamics and incontinence program at Good Samaritan Hospital provides
patients with most advanced therapies to correct both common and complex problems.
The Peter D. Fugelso, M.D., Urology Center, a Center of Excellence, includes Good Samaritan Hospital's outstanding
Kidney Stone Service, one of the busiest in California. The program uses a safe, noninvasive
technique called extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), which enables
kidney stones to be broken apart through shock waves that pass harmlessly
through a patient's body. ESWL is highly effective in patients of
all ages, including rare cases of stones in infants as young as 19 months.
Urology at Good Samaritan Hospital offers surgical treatment of prostate
cancer (radical prostatectomy), as well as high dose radiation (HDR),
and the newest minimally invasive treatment technique.
