Procedures / Treatments

  • BCG Bladder Cancer Treatments A treatment for non-invasive, high-grade bladder cancer. The immunotherapy medication is instilled directly into the bladder through a catheter.
  • Bladder Botox Botox is the brand name for botulinum toxin. The injectable medication can relax the bladder muscle and ease incontinence symptoms such as urgency to pass urine. Bladder Botox treatment is used when the condition does not respond to medication that is traditionally used to treat incontinence. The procedure is generally well tolerated by men and women and needs to be repeated every six to nine months.
  • BPH (Enlarged Prostate) An enlarged prostate can make urinating difficult and increase frequency. Options are available to manage BPH symptoms and even treat the condition with minimally-invasive steam therapy.
  • Cystoscopy A diagnostic procedure that allows a physician to examine the bladder lining, collect urine samples and biopsies, remove small stones, and examine the prostate gland and tube that carries urine out of your body (urethra). A small camera called a cystoscope is inserted into the urethra and slowly advanced into the bladder to assist in diagnosing urinary tract and prostate disease.
  • Robotic Prostatectomies da Vinci Surgical System is a robotic surgical platform used in a robotic prostatectomy at Ogden Clinic that translates a specially trained surgeon's hand movements into precise micro movements and offers a progressive, minimally invasive option for major surgery.
  • Robotic Surgery The da Vinci Surgical System is a robotic surgical platform that translates a specially trained surgeon's hand movements into precise micro movements. Da Vinci robotic surgery offers a progressive, minimally invasive option for major surgery.
  • Urodynamics A diagnostic study of the bladder that is used in the diagnosis of bladder problems like incontinence and retention. The test shows how well the bladder, sphincters, and urethra are storing and releasing urine. The tests also measures the bladder’s ability to hold urine and empty completely. Urodynamics testing also determines if the bladder is having involuntary contractions that cause urine leakage.
  • Vasectomy A minimally invasive in-office sterilization procedure for men where the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra are cut so sperm can no longer travel to fertilize a woman's egg. Learn more about Ogden Clinic vasectomies at VasectomyUtah.com
  • Vasectomy Reversal A surgical procedure that reconnects the tubes in a male's reproductive tract after interruption by a vasectomy.
