Advanced Services & Technology: The Latest in Minimally Invasive Treatment

Researchers and manufacturers have been busy developing minimally invasive technologies to treat urological disorders. The physicians at Urology Clinics of North Texas are dedicated to offering the latest in minimally invasive treatment. There is a wide range of technologies available today, ranging from fairly simple to highly sophisticated. Procedures using microwave, radio frequency energy, lasers, electrovaporization, and even hot water have surfaced as FDA approves alternative methods to the norm.

Urology Clinics of North Texas physicians offer the following services:

GreenLight Laser

Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy

This is a specialized form of physical therapy that focuses on the space between the ribs and the knees. If muscles are too lax, then they are strengthened. If muscles are too tight, then they are lengthened. If the pelvis has poor blood flow and oxygen, then hands on techniques are performed to encourage more blood flow and oxygen.
