What is urology and nephrology?
Urology is a branch of medicine that focuses on diseases and disorders of the urinary tract in men and women, as well as the reproductive system in men. A urologist assists patients with urologic conditions, such as incontinence, urinary tract infections (UTIs) or kidney stones.
Nephrology is the study of kidney health, and nephrologists study how the kidneys function. Nephrologists can assist with chronic diseases, like diabetes or kidney disease.
Female incontinence can be a distressing condition that adversely affects your quality of life every day. Fortunately, it almost always stems from an underlying condition that is treatable.
At Eastern Idaho Regional, we've helped women like you regain their self-confidence. We have the experience, expertise and compassion necessary to deliver a comprehensive diagnosis and an appropriate treatment.
Depending on your condition, treatment could include simply making adjustments to your diet and nutrition, or perhaps minimally invasive incontinence surgery to correct a physical defect.

Kidney stone removal
A kidney stone can be a painful nuisance. And if they persist, they can also have serious medical consequences. Depending on your specific condition, your urologist may suggest allowing the stones to pass through urination or minimally invasive kidney stone surgery to remove the stones.
Kidney stone surgery
At Eastern Idaho Regional, we use minimally invasive shockwave lithotripsy to safely remove stones from the urinary tract. During this procedure, stones are identified and located with advanced medical imaging techniques, then shattered with the use of sound waves. The stones are broken into pieces tiny enough to more easily pass through your system.
