Contrary to popular belief, Botox injections can treat an array of medical concerns-- not just fine lines or wrinkles. In fact, those suffering from urinary incontinence, also known as “overactive bladder,” may benefit from Botox injections to paralyze the bladder muscle and prevent contractions that cause an urge to urinate. 

Urinary tract infections (UTI) are fairly common in the United States. They are mostly diagnosed in older adults, although it is possible for children to contract an infection. 

Did you know, scientists have found music stimulates more parts of the brain than any other human function? Music also has the potential to help people with neurological deficits and calm those going through stressful situations. 

Cystocele is a condition that occurs when tissues that hold up the bladder stretch and weaken, which causes the bladder to dip down into a woman’s vagina. 

If you've encountered blood in your urine, the first thing you shouldn’t do is panic. Many instances of hematuria (blood in urine) arise from benign causes like a urinary tract infection, an inherited disorder or a side effect from medications you may be taking. 

Blood in urine is categorized two separate ways: gross hematuria and microscopic hematuria. 

If a diabetic has a hard time controlling their blood glucose levels, they may be at risk of damaging other structures of their bodies. 

When the Affiliated Urologists team talks about urethral bulking, we are talking about a procedure to treat urinary stress incontinence. 

Although taking daily antibiotics for women suffering from recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs) is still considered the best treatment option available, other strategies like cranberry pills, estrogen therapy and acupuncture have shown promising results, according to a recent study. 

Ahh, the holidays! There’s nothing like loading up on sugary treats, lots of alcohol, and honey ham, right? Right, but now that the holiday season is over, the physicians at Affiliated Urologists want patients to understand there are foods that can cause kidney stones, like the ones mentioned above (i.e. sugary treats, alcohol, and salty/sugary meat), and foods that can prevent them.

Many articles and blogs posted on the Internet only address the male population when it comes to seeing a urologist, but it’s equally important for women to do the same! 

Urology is a surgical specialty that diagnoses and treats diseases affecting the urinary tract(s) of males and females. This field of medicine also deals with conditions that affect the male reproductive organs.

New patients are always welcome.
