Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is the most prevalent form of cancer in men. In fact, one in six men will receive a diagnosis of prostate cancer during their lifetime. When detected early, it is also one of the most treatable. If you have recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer, there are a number of therapy options available to you ranging from minimally invasive treatments, such as radiation, to state-of-the-art surgical procedures, like the da Vinci Robotic Prostatectomy.

Conditions Treatments


Greenlight Laser

The Urologists of Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona offer Green Light™ laser ablation, a minimally invasive surgical technique for BPH proven to reduce the risk, operation time, and recovery period of traditional Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP).



Today, technological advances have made surgical vasectomy a low-risk and effective procedure. Using the no scalpel vasectomy technique, the urologic specialists of Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona make a midline puncture in the scrotal skin. This non-invasive approach reduces the risk of side effects, infection, and delayed recovery.



If you suffer from incontinence at any age, the Urologists at Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona want you to know that this urological problem does not need to rule your life. We have a variety of treatment options available that can help you manage your incontinence and improve your overall well-being.

Female Incontinence

Male Incontinence


Vaginal Prolapse

There are many types of vaginal prolapse, each with a specific set of symptoms, and as many as 14 million women in the United States alone suffer from female vaginal and urological problems as a result of this condition. Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona offers patients a variety of vaginal prolapse treatment options to help restore pelvic health.

Conditions Treatments


Erectile Dysfunction

Whether caused by vascular disease, diabetes, prostate surgery, or psychological issues, Erectile Dysfunction (ED), commonly referred to as impotence, is a challenging condition for men to address and overcome. Fortunately, the Doctors of Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona offer a number of ED and male impotence treatments.


Laparoscopic & Robotic Nephrectomy

Less invasive than traditional open kidney surgery, a laparoscopic or robotic nephrectomy is performed through a series of small incisions called ports. Using the aid of a scope, the operating site is visualized and the surgeon's actions carried out through the insertion of laparoscopic instrumentation into the various ports. Advantages include a smaller incision, less risk of blood loss, and a shorter period of recovery.


da Vinci Robotic Prostatectomy

da Vinci Robotic ProstatectomyHigh-tech and minimally invasive, the da Vinci® Robotic Prostatectomy represents the next era of prostate cancer surgery. With the aid of physician-controlled robotic instrumentation and three-dimensional imagery of the operating site, Urologists are able to achieve outstanding precision and reduce the risk associated with traditional open surgery using this state-of-the-art prostate cancer treatment.
