Comprehensive. Compassionate. Contemporary.
Welcome to the Urology Department at Washington Township Medical Foundation,
a place where top specialists with top experience lead to great outcomes.
“It’s not just skills and know-how that make us successful,”
Mark Saleh, MD. “It's also about a philosophy of treating every patient as
Mark Hsu, MD, agrees, and added, “No two patients are alike. There’s a
story behind every patient, and we enjoy hearing about their lives and
what brought them to us. This helps us to best tailor a personalized treatment
When these patients arrive, they’re choosing one of the preeminent
urology teams in Northern California. Dr. Saleh and Dr. Hsu are both board-certified by the
American Board of Urology, and each is experienced in minimally invasive and state-of-the-art procedures.
The physician-researchers are highly trained and skilled in identifying
all types of disorders that affect the urinary tract––and
providing effective behavioral, medical and/or surgical treatments.
The program’s broad range of treatment options are available for
men, women and children, and the entire team is committed to safe, high-quality
care in every patient encounter. A huge asset to the program is the academic
and community collaboration with multidisciplinary teams at Washington
Township Medical Foundation, Washington Hospital and the University of
California, San Francisco.

Among the Conditions We Treat
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) –– enlarged prostate
BPH is an enlargement of the prostate, which can cause an overgrowth that
constricts the urethra and limits the flow of urine. BPH is quite common
in men older than 50 years. It’s not the same as prostate cancer
and doesn’t increase the risk of cancer. However, it can cause symptoms
that can affect quality of life. Possible symptoms include a weaker or
intermittent stream, frequency, urgency, and waking up multiple times
at night to urinate. In some cases, BPH can lead to infections, bladder
stones, and reduced kidney function. Many men may note improvement with
medications, while others may prefer or require a procedural intervention
to improve their condition.
Treatments offered by our team include:
Prostate cancer is an abnormal growth in the prostate gland. This walnut-shaped
gland in the male reproductive tract makes seminal fluid, which mixes
with sperm. Cancer develops when cells divide out of control. Early detection
and treatment have led to better survival for all stages of prostate cancer.
Screening for prostate cancer is a shared decision-making process. Detection
can be performed with prostate specific antigen (PSA) screening, serum/urine
biomarkers, prostate MRI, and prostate biopsy.
Treatments offered by our team include open or robotic surgery, coordination
with our Radiation Oncology team on radiation-based options. Find out
more about our minimally invasive approach to a prostatectomy
by visiting the da Vinci Medical systems website.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) describes difficulty with starting or maintaining
adequate erections for sexual relations. Often, ED results from health
problems that pose more serious complications if left untreated.
Treatments offered by our team include counseling, oral medications, penile
injections, and penile prosthesis implantation.
Male infertility represents an issue in a man that lowers the chances
of his female partner getting pregnant. Fertility issues are related to
low/absent sperm counts, abnormal male hormone levels, or abnormal semen
parameters in terms of motility/shape.
Peyronie's disease occurs when plaques (segments of flat scar tissue)
form under the skin of the penis, causing abnormal curvature that make
sexual relations difficult and/or uncomfortable.
Treatments offered by our team include XIAFLEX®.
Vasectomy and vasectomy reversal
Vasectomy is a minor office procedure intended for permanent male sterilization/birth
control. This prevents sperm from getting to your semen when you ejaculate.
General Urology and all conditions of the urinary tract––including circumcision,
hydrocele, spermatocele and more.
Overactive bladder/urge incontinence
Overactive bladder (OAB) is a condition in which the bladder squeezes
urine out prematurely. This can lead to symptoms of going to the bathroom
very frequently, urgency with urination, and having urinary leakage from it.
Treatments offered by our team include behavioral modification, pelvic
floor therapy, oral medications, percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation,
Stress urinary incontinence
Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) is when urine leaks out with activity
(cough/laugh/sneeze/exercise), producing sudden pressure on the bladder
and urethra, which causes the sphincter muscles to open with urinary leakage.
Treatments offered by our team include behavioral therapy, urethral bulking
injections, and placement of midurethral slings.
Circumcision is a surgical procedure in which the skin covering the end
of the penis is removed, especially in cases where the foreskin can not
be pulled back (phimosis) or if there is infection (balanitis).
An undescended testicle is when it fails to go down into its normal location
in the scrotum.
Advanced Urologic Care
Hematuria (blood in the urine)
Recurrent urinary tract infections
A kidney stone is a hard object made from chemicals in the urine that
can obstruct the kidney and cause infection or loss of kidney function.
We offer comprehensive medical evaluation and multiple surgical techniques
to address stones.
Testicular/Bladder/Kidney/Upper Tract Cancer
Offering comprehensive medical, endoscopic, and surgical evaluation/treatment
in collaboration with Medical Oncology and Radiation Oncology.
Strictures of the urethra or ureter are scar tissues that occlude the
flow of urine. This can be treated with dilation, laser incision, or reconstruction.
Languages spoken by the team include English, Spanish, Arabic and Mandarin
Chinese. For appointments, visit mywtmf.com/safeappointment
