Genitourinary Conditions

The urinary tract includes the organ system primarily responsible for cleaning and filtering excess fluid and waste material from the blood. The urinary system is comprised of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. The kidneys also function as glands that produce hormones necessary for building red blood cells and regulating blood pressure.

There are many disorders of the urinary system that require clinical care by a physician or other healthcare professional. Listed in the directory below are some, for which we have provided a brief overview.
