While we offer cutting-edge treatment for a host of urological diseases, Dr. Mark Hong also understands that some conditions result from disturbances in the overall systemic health of the body. These causes include poor nutrition, lack of exercise, stress, and other lifestyle factors. For this reason, we combine holistic urology with mainstream medicine at our Phoenix, AZ, practice to maximize treatment results. In many cases, this approach can also prevent the recurrence of certain conditions.
An Integrative Approach
It is important to emphasize that for the immediate treatment of urological diseases, especially urgent cases, modern medical techniques are typically the fastest and most effective. Once symptoms have been addressed, holistic treatment will include evaluating different factors, such as the body's immune system and emotional state, and making lifestyle modifications accordingly. This method focuses particularly on the positive effects good nutrition and physical activity can have on urological health and overall well-being.

Dr. Hong will thoroughly examine your medical history when you come in for your initial consultation, and discuss lifestyle habits that affect your physical and emotional health. After a complete assessment, he may provide recommendations such as taking nutritional supplements, dietary changes, increasing exercise, reducing alcohol intake, or stopping smoking.
