Female Urology

Female urology is a specialty that addresses diseases of the female urinary tract. There is a common misperception that urologists only treat males; however, this is untrue, as women experience many of the same urologic conditions as men. Female urology differs slightly from male urology in that it does not address the reproductive system, which is addressed through gynecology.

Females experience many of the same urologic conditions as men, including urinary tract infections, kidney stones, and cancer; however, some urology conditions are unique to women due to the anatomic developmental differences between men and women. Female urology can help women with urologic conditions such as urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome, pelvic organ prolapse, kidney stones, and cancers of the bladder and kidneys.
