The Cliniques Marois offers a complete urology service, from physical examinations to surgery as well as esthetic care. Our four clinic locations (Montréal, Laval, Greenfield Park and Québec City) are equipped with the latest technologies, providing you with an effective and non-invasive treatment experience.
What is a urologist?
A urologist is a doctor that specializes in the male reproductive system and the urinary system in men and women: from the kidneys to the urethra (including the bladder) and the prostate in male patients. Urologists treat various problems and diseases, such as:
- kidney and bladder stones;
- interstitial cystitis;
- overactive bladder;
- bladder pain;
- vaginal atrophy;
- vulvar lichen sclerosus;
- prostate cancer;
- testosterone deficiency;
- erectile dysfunction;
- infectious balanitis;
- short brake;
- benign prostate hypertrophy
Urologists also perform surgeries or medical examinations such as:
- circumcision for adults or children;
- vasectomy and vasectomy reversal;
- cystoscopy (endoscopic examination of the bladder)
Urologists undergo extensive university training
Any urologist practicing in Québec holds an undergraduate degree in medicine (4 or 5 years) and has completed a 5-year residency in urology. Practical experience in hospital and clinic settings helps consolidate the knowledge they acquired over the course of their studies. In turn, urologists are able to make precise diagnoses, prescribe the most suitable treatments and to master various surgeries.
Why choose a private urologist?
By using a private urologist like Dr. Marois, you will get a consultation much faster than if you were to go through the public health network. The same goes for surgeries: you will usually get an appointment in just a few weeks, whereas you might wait several months before getting an operation in the public sector.

An appointment without a referra
If you need to consult a urologist (or any other specialist), the Québec health system will first require you to obtain a referral from a general practitioner (or family doctor) in order to access their care services.
By opting instead for a private urologist in Montreal, Laval, Québec City or elsewhere in the province, you can make an appointment with Dr. Marois directly, without needing a referral.
Personalized service and comprehensive care
Private urology clinics offer patients unparalleled post-procedural support and guidance. Available and attentive to his patients’ needs and concerns, Dr. Marois and his nursing staff are available to answer your questions, ease your fears and keep you updated about your state of health.

When should I consult a urologist?
Here are a few examples of aggravating factors that can increase the risk of developing a urological condition.
It's better to prevent...
- - If you have very frequent sexual relations, prostatitis or diabetes, if you are pregnant or if you are 65 years of age or older: you are more at risk of developing a urinary tract infection. If you have any symptoms, do not hesitate to consult us.
- - If you eat very salty foods, if you suffer from a calcium deficiency or if you do not hydrate enough: you are at a greater risk of developing urinary lithiasis (kidney stones). If you have any symptoms, please contact us
- - If you are a smoker or are overweight, you are at greater risk of suffering from infertility or even prostate cancer. Should you have any questions or concerns, please consult us.
It can’t be said often enough: the best treatment is prevention. Be alert and watch for changes in your body. If you suspect a urological problem, be aware that the urologist offers a variety of screening tests.
Why should I choose your urology clinic?
At the Cliniques Marois, we offer organized and accessible service in a warm and inviting environment. At all our clinics, we perform various minor surgical procedures to simplify your life and prevent you from having to visit us unnecessarily in the future. Minor urological surgeries requiring general or spinal anesthesia are performed in a private, accredited hospital in Montréal.
From the very first consultation, you will be comforted by Dr. Carlos Marois’ courteous and benevolent approach, in addition to his expertise and professionalism.
