The Urology department at Carle provides comprehensive care for the entire spectrum of genitourinary disorders. Our team of highly-skilled urologists provide the latest diagnostics to detect urological abnormalities and uses minimally invasive laser surgical procedures to treat them.
Our surgeons are trained to perform prostatectomies and nephrectomies using the minimally invasive, da Vinci® Surgical System. Surgeries performed with this system result in less scarring, less pain and a shorter recovery time for most patients.
We also have doctors with advanced training in pediatric urology, urologic oncology and reconstructive surgery.
Urolift® is a minimally invasive procedure that can relieve symptoms of an enlarged prostate and alleviate side-effects of BPH (enlarged prostate) medications. UroLift® places small, permanent implants to lift and hold enlarged prostate tissue away from the urethra, allowing that passage to remain open. With the urethra opening enlarged, urine passes freely again.
With doctors practicing in 80 specialties at locations throughout the region, it’s easy to find the right healthcare team at Carle. Our mission is to serve people through high quality care, medical research and education.
