Urology department

The Urology Department is responsible for the medical and surgical treatment of pathologies associated with the male and female urinary tract and the male genitalia.

Its activities are essentially diagnosis and treatment and the monitoring of cancerous and non-cancerous conditions affecting the prostate, kidneys, bladder and male genitalia.

As our work is principally oncological in nature, we operate a strongly multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of all cancerous conditions associated with the genitourinary system.

Our team therefore works in close and constant collaboration with the Institut Bordet’s medical oncologists, radiotherapists, radiologists, nuclear medicine specialists and anatomopathologists.
