Urology Center Moves to Charlois Boulevard

October 10, 2007

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – The Department of Urology of Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center has moved its patient care offices to 140 Charlois Blvd. in Winston-Salem.

The department’s physicians are experienced in treating the complete range of urologic conditions and diseases, from prostate cancer to kidney stones and incontinence, to sexual dysfunction and infertility. Their expertise also includes complex reconstruction, pelvic prolapse, and robotic surgery for several urological conditions, including prostate cancer and kidney surgery.

The urology patient care center is also home to the largest pediatric urology group in the state, all affiliated with Brenner Children’s Hospital, taking care of common and complex pediatric urology programs such as hernias, undescended testes, bladder problems, urinary obstruction and kidney reflux.

On-site radiology and laboratory services mean that patients can complete testing during a single visit. The latest diagnostic technology is available, including computerized tomography (CT) scans, ultrasound and digital radiography services, as well as other state-of-the-art minimally invasive diagnostic equipment.

Wake Forest Baptist is one of a few centers in the state offering videourodynamics for determining the cause of incontinence in adults and children. Bladder pressures and volume are examined simultaneously using X-ray. This combination helps doctors understand the exact cause of bladder problems so that they can prescribe the best solution.

The Urology Center building, which is nearly 18,000 square feet, has convenient parking, is handicap accessible, has separate waiting rooms for adult and pediatric patients, and is WiFi-friendly. The clinic will be staffed by 11 urology physicians. For an appointment, call 336-716-4131.
