The Stanford Center for Female Urology and Neuro Urology provides comprehensive evaluation and treatment to patients with problems relating to the bladder and lower urinary tract.
Urinary tract disorders are greatly under reported and under treated in our society. One of the main impediments to treatment is the embarrassment many patients feel in discussing these sensitive issues. Our staff is committed to preserving patient dignity and providing the highest quality care and comfort.
The Center's physicians aim to provide comprehensive care for patients with lower tract disorders. This approach is valuable because abnormalities of urination often occur simultaneously with problems with defecation, pelvic prolapse and pelvic pain.
Neuro Urologists are specially trained to evaluate all problems related to the lower urinary tract and pelvic floor. This type of practice is typically designated as Female Urology because these problems are more common in women, although many of the same problems can occur in men.
Urinary incontinence, urinary retention, and other voiding problems
Disorders resulting in the involuntary leakage of urine include functional, stress, urge and overflow incontinence, and overactive bladder syndrome (OAB).
Urinary tract pain
Several different bladder problems can cause pain and inflammation in the urinary tract, including interstitial cystitis, urinary tract infection, and bladder cancer.
A complex, chronic disorder characterized by an inflamed or irritated bladder wall, often leading to scarring and stiffening of the bladder, decreased bladder capacity, and glomerulations (pinpoint bleeding).
condition that causes pain and inflammation in the prostate (gland located directly below the bladder) and the lower urinary tract in men.
