Minimally Invasive Office Procedures

Many disorders in the field of Urology require some form of intervention.  Some are conservative utilizing only behavioral modification and medication, while others employ surgical techniques.  Atlthough Dr. Schock is fully certified to perform Urological surgery, he prefers to always consider the least invasive options for his patients.

            

The concept of minimally invasive office based procedures in Urology is not new, but many new advanced techniques have been developed to make the patient experience as positive as possible; often requiring minimal or no anesthesia.  Dr. Jeffrey Schock and his associates at Tri-County Urologists, P.C., offer the most advanced technology to their patients in the office based settings.  Below is a list of just some of the office based (FDA approved) options available:
