Over ten million Americans have a bladder control problem, but many are too embarrassed to talk about it – even to their own doctors.
HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital Urological services offer care for the diseases of male and female urinary tract and male reproductive organs. Patients are often referred to a urologist if they experience symptoms such as abdominal pain, painful urination, blood in the urine, incontinence and elevated prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels. Our urological team also offers patient-focused treatment options for urological cancers affecting the bladder, kidney or prostate.
