Men’s Health Clinic
UAB Medicine combined many types of men’s health care services to form the Men’s Health Clinic at The Kirklin Clinic of UAB Hospital. It treats some of the most common men’s health conditions, including infertility, incontinence, sexual health issues, and genitourinary (GU) cancer. The clinic is staffed by an experienced team of physicians and surgeons from the Department of Urology, along with nurse practitioners, radiation and medical oncologists, and urology nurses and technicians. Patients receive the most accurate diagnoses and effective treatment options available, including complex genital and urinary reconstruction surgery and treatment of enlarged prostate using minimally invasive laser surgery, which means that no cutting is required.
The range of conditions we treat and the services we provide include:
The UAB Department of Urology specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the genitourinary tract, which includes both the urinary and reproductive systems. U.S. News & World Report consistently ranks UAB’s urology program among the top 50 of its kind in the nation, and we regularly receive patient referrals from other hospitals in Alabama and surrounding states. Many of our physicians and surgeons helped write national guidelines on treating men’s health conditions, and they share this expertise by speaking at national and international meetings.
Most of our doctors have completed fellowships in addition to traditional urology training, including advanced training in genitourinary cancer, kidney stone disease, and male infertility. UAB Urology specialists are members of the American Board of Urology, the American Urological Association, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, the Society for the Study of Male Reproduction, the Society for Male Reproduction and Urology, the Society of Urologic Oncology, and the American Medical Association, among others.
