Urology relates to both medical and surgical issues involving the urinary tract and includes the treatment of the kidneys, bladder, ureters and the urethra for both men and women. For men, urology it also includes the male reproductive organs. Treatment relating to the female reproductive organs is a separate area of medicine.
Urology treatment and surgery exposes the patient to a multitude of risks and although ultimately the treating healthcare professional endeavours to achieve the best possible outcome for the patient, mistakes do still occur which ultimately puts the patient at risk of harm.
Our solicitors have extensive experience with all types of urology claims, no matter the circumstances in which they arise.
