The causes of frequent UTI (bladder and kidney urinary tract infections) differ between men and women. We offer individualized evaluation and treatment for men and women.

In women, UTI tend to be more frequent and to start earlier in life. There is some genetic predisposition to UTI in some women.  Sometimes they are related to sexual activity.  Other causes such as bladder or kidney stones or incomplete bladder emptying can contribute to risk for UTI.  Occasionally incorrect self-hygiene is the cause.

In men, UTI tend to occur after age 50. Oftentimes they are related to incomplete bladder emptying, enlarged prostate and can be associated with kidney stones or bladder stones.  Many other causes of UTI exist.  A full urological evaluation would be performed to detect and treat UTI.
