Thread: urologist with neurogenic bladder experience

    urologist with neurogenic bladder experience

    I have a terrible ongoing issue with kidney stones. I was going to a wonderful urologist in Pittsburgh, PA. My mother is aging, and the driving is a little too much. Is there any type of directory that would list this specialty? Thank you.

    I found this directory. Urology Care Foundation, Official Foundation of the American Urological Association. http://www.urologyhealth.org/find-a-urologist

    I did a search in a 50 mile range from my zip code and found a urologist that I know is a neurourologist. My search criteria for specialty was "Incontinence." However, another specialty that was listed was Kidney & Urethral Stones.

    I appreciate the link. I did go to it. I did find one Dr. that I was not aware of. There really is no filter for any type of neurogenic issues. But she does have a specialty in oncology. Maybe there may be a roundabout correlation. I will try to give her a call in the morning.

    You can set filters to find urology specialists in Kidney and Urethra Stones and in Incontinence, which are two big problems for someone with a neurogenic bladder.

    Our neuro urologist is not the expert in kidney stones. Not to say he can't remov ekidney stones but now the laser, ESWL etc.. , need for ureteral stents can be a specialist in itself. I would contact both and inquire. If there is an obstructed ureter from a stone then interventional radiologist can put in a Percutaneous nephrostomy tube at the request of the urologist. So all of this is usually at a major hospital or university affiliated center.
