Topic: What does a urologist do? 

Speaker: Yuuki Kyohda, Assistant Professor, Sapporo Medical University, Japan


Hospitals comprise several departments, including but not limited to internal medicine, surgery, pediatrics, orthopedics, and others. As a medical professional, I specialize in urology, which primarily involves diagnosing and treating conditions related to the urinary system, such as infections and cancers. While sexually transmitted diseases can sometimes be within the scope of practice, it is not the primary area of focus. In this talk, I will provide an overview of urology, an often-overlooked specialty in the medical field. Additionally, I will discuss ongoing collaborative research between myself and Professors Mianxiong Dong and Kaoru Ota from Muroran Institute of Technology. This research combines medical and engineering knowledge to advance our understanding and treatment of urological disorders.


Prof. Yuuki Kyohda is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine at Sapporo Medical University. Dr. Kyohda received the Ph.D. degree (2017) from the Sapporo Medical University, Japan. From 2017 to now, he is an assistant professor fellow at Sapporo Medical University. His current research interests include male patients with nocturia, vibegron in patients with overactive bladder, cell carcinoma, and so on. He has published many papers in conferences, including LUTS: Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms, International Journal of Urology, etc.
