What Is a Urologist?

A medical worker shows the urinary system on blurred background.

A urologist is a doctor who specializes in identifying and treating conditions of the urinary tract and male reproductive system, including:

  • Adrenals, the small glands on the kidneys that produce and regulate hormones
  • Bladder, the expandable sac where urine collects until it's time to empty
  • Kidney, the filter that removes waste and extra fluid from the body
  • Penis, the male reproductive organ used for urination and sex 
  • Prostate, the gland that makes fluid to protect sperm (seminal fluid)
  • Testes, the two glands that make sperm and testosterone  
  • Scrotum, the external sac that protects the testes 
  • Ureter, the tube that takes urine from the kidneys to the bladder
  • Urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder to outside the body
