Urology is the field of medicine that focuses on the urinary tracts of males and females, and of the male reproductive system. It is "multidisciplinary" in that the discipline includes management of "medical" (ie., non-surgical) problems such as urinary infections and "surgical" problems such as the correction of congenital abnormalities of the urinary / reproductive systems and the surgical management of cancers involving the urinary and (male) reproductive organs. It includes the kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, the male reproductive organs including the testes, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, and prostate.
