Our Approach to Treating

Urinary Tract Infections in Adults

At NYU Langone, doctors specialize in diagnosing and managing urinary tract infections, or UTIs, in adults. The second most common type of infection, a UTI occurs when bacteria enter the urethra, the tube that carries urine out of the body. This leads to an infection that can cause pain, burning, and other problems with urination. Sometimes, a UTI can lead to a kidney infection.

Though most common in women, the condition can affect men and children, too. Doctors at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital of New York at NYU Langone provide treatment for urinary tract infections in children.

Our urologists work with adults to cure UTIs and help prevent them from recurring.

Treatment for Urinary Tract Infections in Adults

Treatment for a UTI can include antibiotics, analgesics, and—for women in menopause—estrogen.
