General urology is a medical specialty that focuses on the urinary tract in men and women. As a board-certified urologist, Dr. Gonzalez also specializes in diagnosing and treating reproductive conditions in men.
Dr. Gonzalez uses his expertise to address several urinary tract and sexual health conditions, such as:
Urinary incontinence is a common condition that causes you to leak urine. Uncovering the cause allows Dr. Gonzalez to provide an effective treatment for you.
UTIs are infections that can affect any part of the urinary tract, including the kidneys, bladder, or urethra.
BPH is an enlarged prostate, the small gland between the bladder and penis that helps create semen. The condition can cause frequent urination, blocked urine flow, or bloody urine.
The pelvis is the area between your belly button and hips. Pelvic pain can feel dull or sharp. It may come and go or bother you constantly. Long-term pain is a warning sign of a sexually transmitted disease (STD), endometriosis, or uterine fibroids.
Interstitial cystitis is a chronic condition that puts pressure on the bladder, causing frequent urination and pelvic pain.
Testosterone is a male sex hormone that helps control your libido, muscle mass, physical endurance, and fat distribution.
Dr. Gonzalez offers many general urology services at his office, such as:
A penile doppler ultrasound is an imaging scan that assesses your response to medications that enhance blood flow to the penile. It can help determine the cause of your erectile dysfunction by evaluating your blood vessel health.
Hormone therapy can help treat hormone imbalances from menopause or low testosterone (low T). Dr. Gonzalez offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) and testosterone pellets to customize your treatment.
A vasectomy is a common form of male contraception that seals the tubes that help create semen.
The prostate is a small gland that helps create sperm. As you age, your prostate may grow and compress the bladder and urethra. This enlargement can lead to blocked urine flow and frequent urination. Prostate health management can help prevent uncomfortable complications and reduce your risk of prostate cancer.
