Helping our midcoast neighbors with urologic concerns from incontinence to oncologyOur patients benefit from advanced equipment and convenient outpatient services, plus a state-of-the-art medical center. Our capabilities meet standards set in urban areas, but our personal touch reminds you that you're close to home.
Excellent care requires support from people you trust, and high quality technological support. Our staff takes the time to listen and respond to your questions and -- since our team of physicians represents the breadth of urological specialties, we have the ability in our office setting to provide you with answers, information and options.
In close collaboration with area gynecologists, our urologists use a spectrum of treatment options, from medication and behavior modification to surgery. Options for minimally invasive treatment include collagen injection performed on an outpatient basis.
These types of cancers threatens the kidney, ureter, bladder, prostate, penis, urethra and testicles are potentially life-threatening, but with accurate, early diagnosis and timely treatment they can be overcome. Through our collaborative relationship with Penobscot Bay Medical Center, we operate as a team of urologists or in combination with board-certified general surgeons. This is a higher level of expertise than is offered at other institutions, where resident physicians assist in these procedures.
Impotence/Sexual DysfunctionThis common condition may be associated with depression, loss of self-esteem and increased anxiety. After a thorough evaluation of a person's medical history, an examination and laboratory tests, we are able to offer successful treatment options ranging from counseling to surgical treatments.
Urinary Stone DiseaseStones cause severe pain, with stones in the kidney, ureter or bladder. Stone come in many forms, so we have a broad array of treatment options. These include medical management, non-invasive extracorporeal shock wave treatment, endoscopic surgical management with laser, minimally invasive percutaneous treatment and, when necessary, open surgery.
We know that sometimes it helps to have the support of someone who knows first-hand what you are experiencing. Through our liaisons with the American Cancer Society, American College of Surgeons and local support, we can help you gain the knowledge and understanding you need to stay healthy.
