Dedicated to Creating Healthier Communities
We’re your partner in health, offering a wide variety of services that care for the mind, body and spirit.
Virginia Mason Franciscan Health offers the full range of urology and nephrology services for men and women, adults and children. Our board-certified urologists and fellowship trained urologic oncologists are surgical specialists who focus on anatomical or structural disorders of the kidneys, bladder and urinary tract. They treat the full range of issues including: kidney stones, kidney blockages, prostate disease, kidney disease, bladder control, male infertility, kidney cancer, testicular cancer, bladder cancer, prostate cancer, and erectile dysfunction. Our board-certified nephrologists offer services that focus on disorders that affect the way the kidneys work, such as chronic kidney disease (CKD) and related co-morbidities such as diabetes and high blood pressure. Nephrologists generally prescribe nonsurgical medical treatments for these disorders.
