(415) 353-2200

The UCSF Urology Practice provides comprehensive care for adults with all types of noncancerous conditions affecting the urinary tract. With experts in numerous subspecialties, we treat common issues, such as urinary stones and urinary tract infections, as well as rare disorders and complex problems, such as urethral strictures. We also offer specialized care for male patients with benign conditions of the prostate gland, erectile dysfunction and infertility. And our urologic surgery team is nationally known for its expertise in repairing the genitals and urinary tract following injury.

Our services include exams and screening tests; diagnostic imaging, such as ultrasound; second opinions; advanced treatment techniques, including minimally invasive procedures; and long-term follow-up care. In addition, because UCSF has a large research program dedicated to improving care for urinary conditions, interested patients may have the option to join a clinical trial investigating a promising new treatment.
