Male Urinary Dysfunction
At NYU Langone, our urologists are leaders in treating men with urinary dysfunction, which can be caused by a number of conditions. These include benign prostatic hyperplasia, or enlargement of the prostate gland; neurogenic voiding dysfunction, in which bladder nerves don’t work; and stress or urgency incontinence, which refers to a loss of bladder control.
Our specialists helped pioneer some of the most effective medications available and have continued to lead the way in new therapies and surgical techniques for these and other conditions affecting urination in men. Our doctors offer customized treatment plans based on the impact your condition has on your daily life.
