Urological Home

Welcome to the Urological Community! Explore our library of helpful resources to help you learn more about how to catheterize, keep a healthy urinary tract and more. Our goal is to provide current, accessible and accurate information about a variety of urology issues you may experience. We look forward to answering any questions you may have.

Have you recently been told you will need a catheter? Are you curious about whether catheterizing could solve the incontinence issues you may have been experiencing? Are you a catheter veteran, but want to learn more? We have answers for anyone who falls into the above categories. Educate yourself about the different types and options and learn about how to troubleshoot issues, too!

It’s important to maintain your health – and that means maintaining the health of all your systems. Your urinary tract is included in full-body health! While urinary tract health may not always be under your control, paying attention to your kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra may help you avoid trouble down the line. Learn more about your urological health in our community.

From interviews to how-to’s, some things are best explained in person. Watch these videos for great tips from Laura and our clinical team, who cover topics in a clear and concise way – not to mention fun!
