Urology is a surgical specialty that deals with diseases of the male and female urinary tract and the male reproductive organs. Patients should consider consulting a urologist if they have any of the following symptoms:

  • Discomfort while urinating
  • A sense of difficulty in completely emptying the bladder
  • Discomfort while urinating
  • Incontinence (a loss of urinary control). Learn more about pelvic floor disorders.
  • Hematuria (the appearance of blood in the urine)
  • Pain that appears to be related to one of the structures of the urinary tract
  • Problems with sexual function
  • Infertility (difficulties involved in conceiving a child)

Our urologists are at the forefront of advances in treatment of post-prostatectomy incontinence and erectile dysfunction. For conditions including stones in the kidney, bladder or ureter, lithotripsy is offered through our affilliate, Greater Hartford Lithotripsy. Lithotripsy is a medical procedure that uses shock waves to break up stones into tiny pieces so they can be passed out of the body through the urine.

Saint Francis urologists are consistently named Top Doctors in annual surveys by Connecticut Magazine. They also work closely with the Curtis D. Robinson Men's Health Institute at Saint Francis, which provides potentially life-saving prostate cancer screening and treatment for underserved men in the Greater Hartford region. The daVinci Robotic Surgical System is available for the treatment of men with prostate cancer.
