Urology Services


Urology is the medical specialty involving the male and female urinary tract. For example, if you have an issue with your kidneys or bladder, you might see a urologist. Urologists also treat the male reproductive system, including the testes, prostate, penis, and scrotum.

At UPMC in Ireland, our urology specialists use innovative treatments and minimally invasive techniques to provide you with a range of urological services.

How to Make a Urology Appointment

Ask your GP for a referral and contact a urology expert at a UPMC location near you. Locations include UPMC Whitfield Hospital, UPMC Kildare Hospital, UPMC Aut Even Hospital, and the UPMC Outreach Center, Carlow.

Providing you excellent medical and nursing care is at the heart of everything we do at UPMC.
