Reconstruction of the genitourinary tract is necessary when normal function of one or more of its components are impaired. One of the most common scenarios necessitating genitourinary reconstruction is tissue damage that occurs following cancer treatment, specifically surgical and radiation treatment for prostate cancer.
The field of reconstructive urology has emerged over the past two decades. With the leading-edge techniques now available, reconstructive urology offers today’s patients a greatly improved quality of life that had been difficult to achieve previously.
The Northwestern Medicine Department of Urology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine continues to stand at the forefront of the field, with world-class reconstructive surgeons offering leading-edge treatments. As the specialty of urethral reconstruction continues to advance, we continue to focus on holistic treatment for every patient.
