Its anatomical scope includes dysfunctions of the kidney and its adjacent structures, the urinary tract and the male genital tract (adrenal gland, kidney, retro-peritoneum and lower back, ureter, bladder, prostate, seminal track, urethra, pelvic floor structures, penis, scrotum, testis and epididymis).

Urology is often confused with Nephrology. This is a non-surgical medical specialty that deals with diseases that affect kidney function (purification, hormonal, regulating homeostasis and acid-base balance), as well as dialysis and hypertension.

The Urology Service at Hospitales San Roque in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is specialized in medical and surgical diagnosis and treatment of any andrological pathology, and we have the latest technology at our disposal to perform laparoscopic procedures such as radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer, ureteropyeloplasty for ureteropelvic junction stenosis and partial nephrectomy for small kidney cancer.

Thanks to our state-of-the-art ultrasound scanners we are able to offer:

  • Penile Doppler ultrasound for erectile dysfunction (or male impotence)
  • Urinary tract exploration
  • Prostrate biopsy for prostrate cancer screening. 

 We also deal with:

  • Micro-surgical vasectomy reversal (vasovasostomy). 
  • Lithotripsy for all sorts of stones using endoscopic surgery (ureteroscopy and percutaneous nephrolithotomy).
