Problems with your urinary tract or sexual function often occur as you age but also happen in younger people. Sometimes, these problems can develop because of a traumatic injury or another medical condition. Cheshire Medical Center’s Urology team understands how private these issues can be, and they treat you with gentle care and sensitivity, no matter your concern.
Your urologist can treat issues with your kidneys, bladder, and other body parts that allow for healthy urination. In men, your treatment can include the health of your sexual organs. Women’s sexual and reproductive health is usually treated by Cheshire's Obstetrics and Gynecology team, but we may work collaboratively to identify issues and create personalized treatment plans.

How we can help

Most patients first visit their primary care team for slow-developing problems or the Urgent Visits team for acute problems, like urinary tract infections. If your doctor thinks you need more specialized treatment or testing, they refer you to the experts on our team. We create personalized treatment plans for a wide range of problems, sometimes performing surgery.

These are some of the common problems our Urology team treats:

  • Cancers of the kidneys, bladder, prostate, and testes (diagnosis and treatment in collaboration with Dartmouth Cancer Center)
  • Cystitis, or bladder inflammation
  • Fertility, both vasectomies and infertility treatment
  • Frequent urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Frequent urination
  • Hypogonadism (or testosterone deficiency)
  • Incontinence (involuntary leaking of urine)
  • Kidney stones
  • Pelvic pain
  • Pelvic trauma
  • Prostate problems, such as enlargement
  • Sexual function, like erectile dysfunction or Peyronie’s disease
  • Trouble urinating
  • Urinary incontinence, retention, or pain

Personalized care plans, especially for men
