Andrology is a branch of medicine that treats diseases and disorders of the male sex. It is primarily concerned with the male reproductive organs. Essentially, andrology is the male counterpart to gynecology. Most andrology conditions and disorders are treated by urologists, specialists who focus on the male urinary tract and reproductive system. Urology is part of the booming medical tourism industry, and many men are crossing borders for quality, affordable urology treatment.
Private hospitals, university medical centers and public facilities worldwide are treating foreign male patients for various andrology conditions. Specialists in Thailand, Mexico, Spain and Singapore are highly sought for urology surgery, infertility treatment and other procedures. Male infertility, erectile dysfunction, Peyronie’s disease, ejaculatory problems, and male menopause or andropause are common andrology conditions that are treated abroad.
