Approximately 40 percent of women and 12 percent of men will experience a urinary tract infection (UTI) in their lifetime. When the bacterial infection affects the lower urinary tract it is known as cystitis or bladder infection. If the upper urinary tract is involved it is called pyelonephritis or kidney infection. The urologists at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) are experts at diagnosing and treating urinary tract infections.
You will receive a thorough diagnostic evaluation and receive clinically-proven treatment by a board-certified urologist who specializes in urinary tract infections. Our goal is to alleviate symptoms so you can return to every life. Appointments are confidential and private.
Brigham and Women’s Hospital practices a multidisciplinary approach to patient care, routinely collaborating with colleagues in other medical specialties. If your urologist discovers that an underlying illness has contributed to your UTI, you will be referred to an appropriate BWH physician for an evaluation.
