Urinary Tract Infections

Urinary tract infections, or UTIs, are the most common infections urologists treat. These types of infections involve the bladder, kidneys, ureters or urethra. Typically occurring in adults, these infections occur when bacteria enter the urinary tract through the urethra and multiply in the bladder. The most common UTIs include cystitis and urethritis. Women are at greater risk for both of these types of infections due to their reproductive anatomy

If urinary tract infections go untreated, they can cause serious medical complications including permanent kidney damage or sepsis. If you have any of the above symptoms, schedule a consultation with an urologist today for evaluation.

Symptoms of cystitis:

  • Blood in urine
  • Frequent urges to urinate
  • Painful urination
  • Abdominal Pain

Symptoms of urethritis:

  • Cloudy urine
  • Discharge
  • Urine has an odd odor
