Male birth control - for the love of your life. We've performed countless successful vasectomies using our in-office vasectomy procedure. It's quick - about 15 minutes - effective and minimizes discomfort. So if you've completed your family, or don't wish to start one, Lubbock Urology can make your decision easier.
Many of our vasectomy patients report that the procedure is a very nice thing to do for the one you love.


The Lubbock Urology Clinic lab - your assurance of quality. At Lubbock Urology, we maintain a comprehensive in-house laboratory for the processing of samples and test results. Our lab can process urine cultures, blood samples, PSA samples and more. Our in-house lab means that you won't have to travel elsewhere to take other tests. Plus, the quality is strictly controlled by our experienced technicians.


Your cancer is our concern. Cancer's effects can be devastating not just to the patient, but to loved ones, as well. Each year, about 31,000 men die from prostate cancer. Testicular cancer is the most common form of cancer in men 15 to 35 years old. And the American Cancer Society estimates that this year, there will be approximately 53,000 new cases of bladder cancer, from which almost 12,000 people will die, making it the 12th-leading cause of cancer death. Men are affected three times more frequently by bladder cancer than women.
As effective as our treatments are, there is no substitution for proactive annual exams. Call Lubbock Urology - we'll help you establish an annual checkup schedule to accommodate your busy lifestyle.
For the various forms of urological cancer, which includes prostate, kidney, bladder, urethral and testicular cancer, Lubbock Urology uses:

  • Lasers - For effective treatment of bladder cancer.
  • Nerve-sparing prostate surgery - A very effective, traditional, time-tested method.
  • Laparoscopic prostatectomy and laparoscopic lymph node dissection for staging - An innovative, minimally invasive approach.
  • Cryotherapy - Probes placed in the kidneys and prostate are frozen and are effective in killing the cancerous cells without harming the surrounding organs.
  • Brachytherapy - An ultrasound procedure that places radiated pellets at the prostate, away from surrounding tissues. This effective therapy is performed on an outpatient basis.


We will draw upon all of our medical education and experience and use every medical and surgical means possible to stop cancer and minimize its effects on your life.


The same special care for kids, too. Because children may be embarrassed about their problem or not know how to properly express what they feel, they require the kind of extra-sensitive, extra care found at Lubbock Urology. Whether it's bed-wetting, an abnormal penis, swollen kidneys or any other pediatric urology problems, parents can rely on Lubbock Urology to be patient, understanding and gentle with their children while providing a solution.


Bladder control - help for sensitive problems. Lubbock Urology has the medical expertise to find the source of incontinence, then treat it with a variety of methods:

  • Collagen and Durasphere injections - Used to supplement the closing of the urethra during coughing, sneezing or laughing. An outpatient procedure.
  • Exercises - Called "Kegel exercises," they are very effective in controlling the bladder, especially when combined with a local hormone cream.
  • Medications - Anticholinergic medications have proven to be very effective in reducing female and male incontinence, with fewer side effects than past medications.
  • Urethral sphincter mechanism - In some cases, male incontinence is best treated with the installation of this device in an outpatient procedure.
  • Slings - A very effective surgical procedure.
