As a major research and referral center, the urologists at Wake Forest Baptist are experts in caring for the most complicated and difficult cases. So it only makes sense that patients also turn to them for common conditions such as urinary tract infection and enlarged prostate.
Our physicians are experts in the full range of urologic conditions for both men and women. For example:
Painful Bladder Syndrome: Because its symptoms are similar to endometriosis, kidney stones and urinary tract infection, it takes the average patient five years to be correctly diagnosed. While interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome isn’t curable, the condition can be effectively managed. With the right treatment, IC patients can get better. LEARN MORE HERE
Pelvic organ prolapse: Our surgeons specialize in using mesh to support the organs through a vaginal approach – reducing recovery time. Hospital stays average one to two days, compared to six days for traditional surgery. In addition, recovery times are cut in half, from four to two weeks. Learn more about this condition in the video below from urologist Gopal Badlani, MD. A detailed 12-minute presentation on urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse is also available on this page.
