Urology and Andrology

With the clinical and surgical activity in the field of Urology and Andrology, Auxologico has the objective of providing the best diagnostic and therapeutic standards relevant to urology and andrology diseases, thus creating programs dedicated to single and specific clinical conditions and pathologies of the patient.

The Urotechnology Center carries out a surgical activity with advanced and mini-invasive procedures and technologies that provide indisputable benefits such as decreased invasivity and reduced pain, shorter convalescence times, but also ensure higher results than those achieved by traditional surgery.

Surgical interventions are conducted at Capitanio Hospital, located in the center of Milan, where patients are provided with the utmost care and attention during the pre-operative and post-operative phases and with dedicated rehabilitation programs.

The outpatient activity is performed in all the locations of Auxologico, where all Diagnostic Imaging instruments (conventional radiology, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, CT and ultrasonography scans) are available, specifically those required for a correct diagnosis of each pathology.

Moreover, the Uro-genetics Service dedicated to the prevention of prostate cancer in subjects who are familiar with this disease is a unique service available in Italy.
Moreover, innovative diagnostic tests are carried out, i.e. the MRI fusion prostate biopsy and the examination of tumor cells circulating in the blood.
