Urology at Good Shepherd Longview
Center for Reconstructive Urology
The Center for Reconstructive Urology offers East Texans a level of urology care never before available in our community. The center’s board certified urologists offer routine urology care as well as highly specialized reconstructive urology and female pelvic medicine services.
The Women’s Health Physical Therapy Program works in collaboration with the Center for Reconstructive Urology, where Good Shepherd’s specially trained physical therapists educate, evaluate and treat female patients to increase activity levels, decrease pain and promote health.
The physicians and therapists at the Center for Reconstructive Urology can address a variety of health conditions and concerns, including:
Urethral stricture disease: Scarring of the urethra which limits or blocks the flow of urine after trauma, inflammation or balanitis xerotica obliterans (BXO)
Incontinence: The uncontrolled loss of urine in both female and male patients
Peyronie’s disease: Penile curvature often caused by a painful lump in the penis
Pelvic floor relaxation and prolapsed: Weakening of the muscles that support the pelvis in women causing urinary problems and protrusion of the vagina
Neurogenic bladder: Urinary difficulties due to spinal cord injury, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis and other neurological disorders
Erectile difficulties: Related to penile function and low testosterone levels
Congenital urologic problems: Abnormalities of the genitals from birth, including hypospadias and epispadias
Overactive bladder: Causing the constant urge to urinate and frequent urination
Genitourinary trauma: Injuries affecting the genitals and urinary organs
Fistulas: Abnormal connections between bladder and vagina or urethra
Pelvic pain: Pain in the tailbone, vagina or rectum, as well as pain with sexual intercourse or insertion of feminine products
