But urologists treat kidneys and urinary tracts, not just prostates and penises. Rickey is the president of the Society for Women in Urology, an organization dedicated to supporting and promoting women in urology. Rickey says that the number of women entering urology is growing: of the people training to be urologists now, 25 percent are women. But they also work with people who have kidney cancers, kidney infections, kidney stones and urinary incontinence. All three urologists say that a big draw for them was the connections they could form with patients. With more female urologists, patients will have more choice in who gets to be their doctor. It's more a matter of who chooses to see her. But she says she misses having men as patients. Facebook Twitter Flipboard Email.
