Urology

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.
