Urological Associates of Savannah, P.C. partners with Meridian Clinical Research. Together, we conduct clinical trials to help research better therapies for the patients we see, and for people worldwide.
Without clinical trials, it would be impossible to develop new medicines and cures. These studies also offer more care options for our patients suffering from chronic and rare health conditions. This is especially helpful for patients who struggle to find effective therapies currently on the market.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is an enlargement of the prostate gland affecting about 50% of men by age 60, and up to 90% of men by age 85. This enlargement can compress the urethra, reducing the flow of urine from the bladder, and sometimes blocking it entirely. The symptoms of BPH include: urinary frequency, irregular flow, urgency, weak stream, straining, getting up at night to urinate.
Rezūm Water Vapor Therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that uses the natural energy stored in a few drops of water to treat the excess prostate tissue causing BPH symptoms. So you can get back in the game quickly. No need to be in the hospital. And no need to continue taking costly BPH medications. Talk more with one of our urologists at your next visit.
If you're suffering from BPH, Rezūm Water Vapor Therapy provides numerous benefits.
HOLIDAY CLOSURE NOTICE: Our office will be closed just on Friday, December 24 for Christmas holiday. Should you have an urgent medical need, please go to the nearest hospital emergency room. We will have a physician on call for our practice to handle issues that cannot wait until we reopen on Monday, December 27 at 8:00 a.m. Our answering service can be reached by dialing 912/790-4000.
A DEXAscan is a test that measures bone mineral density. Short for dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry, the DEXAscan helps evaluate bone health and determines the likelihood of osteoporosis or bone fractures. It can also help detect if cancer has metastasized or spread to the bones.
The test is easy, fast, non-invasive, painless and performed here in our office at Urological Associates. The scan takes approximately 30 minutes but most of that time is spent preparing you to lay on the table. Unlike MRI or CT scans, you will not have to lie inside a closed tunnel or ring but rather be on an open x-ray table. You remain still as the scanner passes over your body.
Once the procedure is concluded, the physician will read the test and relay the findings.

Urological Associates has 6 physicians
that specialize in urology (conditions and diseases of the male and female urinary systems and the male reproductive system). We provide services to adults from 18 years of age and up.
We proudly offer UroNav - a fusion biopsy system that fuses pre-biopsy MRI images of the prostate with ultrasound-guided biopsy images allowing for excellent delineation of the prostate and suspicious lesions, as well as clear visualization of the biopsy needle.
Dr. Natalie Swavely, originally from Charleston, South Carolina, completed her undergraduate degree at Clemson University.

Our clinical studies are held to incredibly high standards set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Meridian. Every effort is made to ensure patient safety.
