Clinical Services at Rush Treatments for Urological Conditions

Urologists at Rush are at the leading edge of advanced technologies, treatments and minimally invasive procedures, including:

Brachytherapy: An advanced prostate cancer therapy that delivers short, precise radiation to the tumor while minimizing overall radiation exposure to healthy tissues.

Cryosurgery: Used as an alternative to surgery to treat localized prostate cancer, this treatment freezes and kills abnormal cells.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) treatments: A full range of ED treatments are offered, including prosthetic implant surgery, erectile aids and drug therapy.

Extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy: A noninvasive procedure that uses high-intensity acoustic pulses to break up kidney stones, making them easier to pass.

Infertility treatments: Urologists at Rush work closely with the Rush Center for Advanced Reproductive Care to treat male infertility through medications, surgery or advanced reproductive technologies.

InterStim Therapy: A device used to treat female incontinence that sends electrical pulses to the sacral nerves, which control the bladder and muscles related to urinary function.

Laparoscopic surgery: Minimally invasive surgery that uses small incisions in the abdomen for the treatment of kidney, prostate and bladder disorders.

Laser lithotripsy: A minimally invasive procedure using a laser to disintegrate kidney and bladder stones.

Minimally invasive prostate resection: This includes several procedure options that remove part of the prostate gland to treat an enlarged prostate using office- or outpatient-based laser therapies.

Partial nephrectomy: A minimally invasive kidney-sparing surgery that removes the diseased part of the kidney while maintaining healthy kidney tissue.

Prostatectomy: A minimally invasive, nerve-sparing surgical procedure that removes the cancerous prostate gland and related structures.

Robotic-assisted surgery: The da Vinci Surgical System provides patients with a minimally invasive alternative to an open prostatectomy.
