Video visits for select patients with urologic disorders
The Division of Urology at Baylor Scott & White – Temple is offering video visits for select patients considering surgical treatments for urologic disorders.
Video visits enable you to talk with a urologic specialist to determine if surgery might be an option for you.
Video visits are available for some patients with the following conditions:
- Kidney cancer—for those patients considering laparoscopic or robotic treatment of kidney tumors
- Prostate cancer—for those men considering robotic prostatectomy
- Prostate enlargement—for those men considering surgery for an enlarged prostate (TURP or other laser prostate procedure). Surgery to be discussed at consultation - HOLEP (Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate)
If you are unsure if a video visit is covered by your insurance, or if you do not know if you need a referral or authorization, please contact your insurance provider for verification.
If you are a Medicare beneficiary, you will need to sign an advanced beneficiary notice, with understanding that you would be responsible for the consultation services.
If you are interested in a urology video visit, please send an email and include your name, date of birth and insurance carrier.
