General Female Urologic Health

Upstate Urology understands that women's urological conditions can be uncomfortable and unpleasant health problems to deal with, and we stay abreast of the available medical therapies to provide you with the advanced treatment options available.

Living with urinary frequency or overactive bladder is no longer necessary as there are many options available to help the women of Central New York. These issues as well as urinary tract infections (UTIs) and kidney stones can be handled by the General Female Urologic Health care team of Upstate Urology.

Accurate diagnosis of your condition is key to successful treatment. Your visit will include a complete history and a physical exam by our specialized nursing team and a Urologist. Our diagnosis and treatment is individualized and may include one of several state-of-the-art diagnostic tests or procedures:

  • Cystoscopy
  • Urodynamics
  • Bladder Scan
  • Uroflow

Once testing is complete, our providers work with you to develop the treatment plan that works best for you.

Upstate Urology provides these services at each of our clinic locations:
