Erectile dysfunction (commonly referred to as impotence) is defined as the repeated inability to produce or maintain an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Some men with erectile dysfunction are no longer able to achieve an erection while others are only able to sustain brief and inconsistent erections. Although the incidence of erectile dysfunction increases with age, this condition is not an inevitable part of aging.

Sometimes waste byproducts in the urine do not dissolve completely and develop from microscopic particles or crystals into kidney stones over time. Stones that move down into the ureter, get stuck in the passage, and cause excruciating pain are referred to as ureteric stones. Cancerous (malignant) cells can develop in the lining of the kidney’s tubules and grow into a mass called a tumor, which is known as renal cell carcinoma (RCC), the most common form of kidney cancer. At Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona, we specialize in the field of urogynecology and believe that early detection and diagnosis of these and other female urological problems, such as those listed below are important in providing patients with effective treatment options.
