Urologic Disorders

Urological disorders are diseases of the kidneys and the urinary tract. They include kidney failure (functional impairment of the kidney), urinary tract infections, inflammation of the bladder, incontinence (involuntary loss of urine) and problems with prostate like overgrowth or inflammation.

Feinstein Institute researchers are studying urologic disorders that include acute kidney injury, urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. They are working to find more effective treatments for these disorders, including ways to lessen the damage caused during acute kidney injury, as well as developing medical and surgical devices to reduce incontinence.

Feinstein Institute investigators studying urologic disorders include Louis R. KavoussiChristine Metz and Jill Maura Rabin.
