Geriatric Urology

Geriatric Urology outlines important topics in the care of elderly urology patients. The first section covers the biology of aging, the genitourinary system and disease screening including urologic conditions serving as warning signs of other disorders. Section two covers geriatric syndromes and urology including frailty, polypharmacy, dementia, wound healing, osteoporosis and endocrinology. Urologic conditions in older adults are explored in detail including urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, urinary tract infection, nocturia, and benign prostate diseases. Other topics covered include obtaining informed consent, development of advance directives, palliative medicine and care of the dying patient. Geriatric Urology is of great value to urologists, geriatricians, internists, residents and family practitioners.
