With Expert and Compassionate Urology Care
You can trust the urology team at AdventHealth Heart of Florida, formerly Heart of Florida Regional Medical Center, to treat your urological condition with the expertise and compassion we’d want for our own families.
Our Davenport urology center offers services that span the full continuum of care, provided by Florida urology physicians with the experience and skill to help with your urology condition, whether minor or complex.
And since many urological conditions can feel deeply personal, we’re dedicated to maintaining your privacy and dignity while offering solutions that will have a positive impact on your life.
For a Wide Range of Urological Conditions
- Urinary Tract Conditions
The urinary tract is your body’s drainage system. It consists of
several organs that work together to remove urine and extra fluids from your body, including your:
- Bladder, which stores your urine
- Kidneys, which cleanse your blood
- Ureters, which carry urine from your kidneys to your bladder
While most conditions of the urinary tract are treated by a urologist — such as urinary incontinence, urinary stones,
prostate cancer, other urinary tract cancers and male reproductive issues — some that are specific to women require the expertise of a gynecologist. If you aren’t certain where to start, you can work with your primary care physician for a referral and next steps.
The urology team at AdventHealth Heart of Florida can help you with everything from routine complaints and kidney stone removal to treating more serious conditions like prostate cancer and kidney conditions. Whatever your need, we’ll look first at minimally invasive treatment options, and will only consider surgery when it’s needed to ensure your best possible outcome.
If surgery is necessary, our surgeons offer progressive surgical techniques, including:
- Prostate Cancer Surgery
- Robotic Prostatectomy
- Robotic Surgery for Prostate Cancer

- Kidney Disorders
Your kidneys work around the clock to filter about 120 to 150 quarts of blood and produce about 1 to 2 quarts of urine. So it should come as no surprise that even a small breakdown or interruption to this system, like an infection, can cause pain and disruption to your everyday life.
More serious kidney conditions can be life changing or even life threatening.
Kidney disorders can include:
- Kidney Cancer
- Kidney Disease
- Kidney Failure
- Kidney Infections
- Kidney Stones
The good news is that there’s a great deal you can do to help prevent kidney problems, such as creating a diet plan to put less stress on these vital organs. Our specialist can help you learn more about your specific risk for kidney disease and help guide your next steps. Particularly if you have high blood pressure or diabetes — which can cause your kidneys to work overtime and lead to kidney damage — it’s critical your condition is well managed.
If you’re diagnosed with a kidney disease or disorder, you can have peace of mind knowing that treatment advances have made many kidney conditions treatable when they’re diagnosed early. From preventive measures to medication, dialysis and surgery, AdventHealth Heart of Florida urology physicians (nephrologists) can help.
- Prostate Conditions
More than 30,000 men suffer from prostate conditions that negatively affect their quality of life. From enlarged prostate to prostatitis and prostate cancer, our specialists are here to help.
Since prostate cancer is the most serious of these conditions, and since it can be easily treated (and cured) if its caught in its earliest stages, we encourage men to keep current with their screening tests to detect prostate cancer.
When treatment for prostate cancer is necessary, our urologists and oncologists work together with other specialties to develop a comprehensive treatment plan designed just for you.

Whether you’re having trouble starting the urine stream or holding your urine when you feel a strong urge to go, dealing with urinary incontinence can keep you from the activities and people you love.
You may also feel embarrassed to talk about your incontinence, even with your loved ones and doctors. However, at Advent Health Heart of Florida, we offer many promising treatment programs and therapies to help you gain control over your symptoms, including a physical therapy plan to help you strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, and improve your function or pelvic surgery, if necessary.
