What is a Urinary Infection?
Urinary infection or urinary tract infection (UTI) is a type of infection that affects the urinary system. This infection commonly occurs in the urethra (called urethritis), urinary bladder (called cystitis), and kidneys (called pyelonephritis). Since urine is the byproduct of the human body, it doesn’t contain germs or bacteria. When kidneys filter the blood, excess water and waste products are converted into urine.
Generally, urine passes out from the body without contamination. However, disease-causing pathogens could enter outside the body, causing inflammation and infection. Urology Surgeries could be one of the solutions for all your urological problems offering effective urology infection treatments. Urinary infections are common among all age groups and gender. As per some health reports, nearly 8 to 10 million people visit urologists complaining about urinary system infections.
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are caused by microorganisms, generally bacteria that enter the body through the urethra and reach the bladder causing infection. Though bacteria most commonly affect the urethra and bladder, they sometimes travel to ureters and damage your kidneys. Approximately 90% of bladder infections are caused by E.Coli, a bacteria found in small intestines. Besides this, unprotected sexual incontinence, constipation, dehydration, and kidney stones can also cause the condition.

Urologists use different procedures to diagnose urologic conditions and provide effective treatments. Some of these procedures are;
