Kidney and Urinary Health

    Our approach to kidney and urinary health care

    SIU Medicine is an academic medical community, meaning our doctors are also researchers and teachers. While our urologists, urological surgeons, nephrologists, primary care providers, and men’s and women’s health experts work collaboratively to provide you with the safest, most effective treatment options, they’re also investigating new diagnostic tools, better surgical techniques and less invasive treatment methods. Our providers are training the next generation of urologists to provide the combination of compassionate and skilled care for which SIU Medicine is known. 

    From managing recurrent urinary tract infections and kidney stones to tackling chronic kidney disease and cancers of the adrenal gland, bladder, kidneys, male reproductive organs and ureter, our experts’ primary goal is to help you feel better, faster.
