Urinary Tract Infections Are Common:
UTIs are a common infection among adults, with one in four people experiencing a UTI over the course of their lifetime. UTIs can be caused by bacteria that enter through your urethra and travel to your bladder, where they may cause inflammation or even an infection if left untreated. Symptoms of UTIs include pain or burning when you urinate, frequent need to urinate, and bloody urine. If you have symptoms of a UTI, see a doctor as soon as possible for professional testing and treatment options to help get rid of your symptoms and prevent them from returning in the future!
Simple Tests Prevent Serious Problems:
Simple UTIs are common and often easily treatable with antibiotics and hydration; however, if left untreated UTIs can lead to more serious health problems such as kidney infections or urinary tract obstruction. We recommend a simple urine culture test for all patients who come in with symptoms of a UTI because it’s quick, easy, and inexpensive. For patients, without symptoms, we offer a screening tool that determines whether they are likely to have an infection based on their sex, age, race, pregnancy status, and other factors.
Treatment Options For UTIs:
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are common infection in women that is easily treated with antibiotics. A UTI can be as simple as irritation or discomfort in the bladder, or more severe and involve fever and pain in other parts of your body such as your lower back or abdomen. If you have any of these symptoms, please call our office for an appointment so we can diagnose it for you and make sure it doesn’t become something more serious like a kidney infection!

Patient story from Dr. Anthony Mazzuco, The Fellowship-Trained Robotic Surgeon:
In 2007, I had a UTI that was resistant to all antibiotics. A doctor suggested I get my prostate checked, but my fear of needles kept me from going through with it. In 2008, I got another UTI and this time it was so severe that I had to go to the emergency room for IV antibiotics. It became clear that if I didn’t act fast, my condition could become life-threatening. That’s when I went in for a consultation with Drs. Mazzuco and Kohn at St.
