To Help You Get Back on the Move
Whether you’re running errands or a 5K, you were meant to be in motion. So when something slows you down — like extra trips to the bathroom, a urinary tract infection (UTI) or a concerning prostate cancer screening — you need fast diagnosis and treatment to get back to the life you love.
AdventHealth North Pinellas, formerly Florida Hospital North Pinellas, taps into the collective expertise of our multidisciplinary staff to ensure the best possible care for urological conditions — from kidney stone treatment to urology urgent care and prostate cancer support.

- Our Minimally Invasive Treatment Options
While our team will always help you consider the least invasive treatment options first, sometimes urology surgery is necessary. If you or a loved one requires surgery, you can rest assured knowing we use progressive surgical techniques, including robotic surgery.
Six state-of-the-art treatment methods we use include:
Axonics is a rechargeable pacemaker-like system for overactive bladder, bowel incontinence and urinary retention. This system lasts up to 15 years and restores the communication between your brain and bladder/bowel. The procedure is normally performed in less than an hour and you're expected to go home the same day with minimal to no pain.
High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)
To treat prostate cancer, HIFU targets only cancer and leaves healthy tissue untouched and unharmed, which dramatically lowers the chances of side effects.
ProTouch laser is a tool to treat urinary symptoms due to enlarged prostate. This precise technique minimizes bleeding during the procedure and shrinks or removes excess tissue preventing urine flow.
Rezum treats enlarged prostate by sending tiny streams of water vapor through the urethra to the enlarged prostate gland. The stream destroys the problematic excess cells and are slowly removed naturally by the body. This is an outpatient procedure, typically requires a catheter, no incisions, no general anesthesia and recovery time is normally a few days.
The da Vinci® Xi Surgical System
The da Vinci® Xi is a robotic surgery system that helps surgeons view the surgical site using magnified 3D technology. This allows them to make more precise adjustments during procedures. Robotic surgeries mean less blood loss, less pain, less risk of infection, minimal scarring and a quicker recovery for you or your loved one.
UroLift treats benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) by lifting and holding the enlarged prostate tissue so it no longer blocks the urethra. This procedure doesn’t require heating, cutting or removal of the prostate tissue, so you can likely go home the same day without a catheter.
