What Sets Us Apart

At NYU Langone Medical Center, our urologists are highly trained in treating urethral stricture, a narrowing of the tube that carries urine out of the body. Our specialists use the newest and most effective treatments available for this condition, which is caused by a build up of scar tissue and is more common in men than in women. They tailor care for you—based on the length, location, and severity of the stricture—and identify the most effective therapies or surgical procedures to alleviate your symptoms.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Treatments for urethral stricture include dilation, which widens the urethra, and surgical procedures, which may widen or remove the narrowed section of the urethra. NYU Langone is among the few medical centers in New York City to offer urethroplasty, a surgery used to treat more complicated strictures.
