Urology provides diagnostic, treatment and surgical services to patients
with disorders of the urologic and reproductive systems. The Department,
located on the hospital's first floor, specializes in:
- Incontinence problems in men and women
- Kidney stone removal
- Prostate care
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.
The Center offers surgical treatment of prostate cancer (radical prostatectomy),
as well as high dose radiation (HDR), the newest minimally invasive treatment
