  • Artemis MRI - New Technology for Prostate Cancer Detection and Treatment

    While prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in men, with early detection it is also one of the most treatable. Prostate cancer has few symptoms, however, so technology that aids in diagnosis can be a lifesaver, says Dr. Robert Grand, a urologist at Washington Regional’s Ozark Urology Clinic. “Prostate cancer that is detected early has a better chance of being successfully treated,” he says. “It is especially important to identify high-risk prostate cancers early, to offer a better prognosis and overall life expectancy.”...

  • Urinary Incontinence: Types and Treatments

    Urinary incontinence may be common, but it’s not normal, says Dr. John Brizzolara, a urologist at Washington Regional’s Ozark Urology Clinic. “Many people think it’s just a normal part of aging, but it’s not. It occurs more as we get older, but it’s not normal,” he says....

  • Men's Health - Three Reasons to See a Urologist

    Men who feel healthy may think they don’t need to see a doctor. But as men get closer to their 40s, they should begin talking with a health care provider about the best ways to stay healthy.

Urologists Dr. Mark Jackson, Dr. Robert Grand and Dr. John Brizzolara of Washington Regional’s Ozark Urology offer insight into some issues that urologists commonly diagnose and treat....

  • Prostate Cancer Screening

    One of the most common cancers in men can occur without any symptoms, says Dr. Robert Grand, a urologist at Washington Regional’s Ozark Urology Clinic. “About one in nine men will develop prostate cancer in his lifetime,” he says. “And most cases of prostate cancer are completely asymptomatic, so it is very, very important to get screened.”...

  • Enlarged Prostate Symptoms and Treatment

    Enlarged prostate, also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH, occurs more often than men may think. “It’s a very common disease in men, and one of the top five diseases we see at our clinic,” says Dr. C. Mark Jackson, a urologist at Washington Regional’s Ozark Urology Clinic. By age 40, he says, about half of all men will have some form of BPH; by age 80, about 90% of men will be affected....

  • Kidney Stones Causes, Symptoms and Prevention

    “How can something so small cause so much pain and discomfort?” That’s the question kidney stone patients often ask Dr. Robert Grand, a urologist at Washington Regional’s Ozark Urology Clinic. “To understand kidney stones, it’s important to understand the urinary tract,” he says. “When stones form and obstruct the urinary tract, urine can no longer drain from the kidney into the bladder. This causes dilation, or stretching, of the renal pelvis and kidney. This stretch is what causes the pain.”...
