Urinary tract care
UTIs are the most common infections our urologists treat. These types of infections can involve the bladder, kidneys, ureters or urethra. Typically occurring in adults, UTIs develop when bacteria enters the urinary tract through the urethra and multiply in the bladder.
The most common UTIs include cystitis and urethritis. Women have a greater risk of developing these types of infections due to their reproductive anatomy.
If UTIs go untreated, they can cause you to have serious medical complications, including permanent kidney damage or sepsis. If you believe you are experiencing symptoms of a UTI, schedule a consultation with our urologists.
