Urology

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 technique.
