Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)

Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) - Men

What It Is

A urinary tract infection (UTI), is an extremely common condition that is caused by bacteria from the urethra reaching the bladder. Also known as a bladder infection or cystitis, UTIs are more common in some women, especially those who have shorter urethras.

We can’t treat patients with severe symptoms, including fever, debilitating pain, vomiting, and other indications of rapidly spreading infection. Pregnant women, nursing mothers, and those who have preexisting kidney or bladder conditions will also need to seek more advanced treatment from a specialist or through emergency healthcare clinics.

Our Treatment

Simple infections are treated with:

  • Cephalexin
  • Trimethoprim
  • Other antibiotics

Complicated UTIs and kidney infections may be treated with a group of antibiotics called fluoroquinolones, which include:

  • Ciprofloxacin (Cipro)
  • Levofloxacin (Levaquin)
  • Other fluroquinolones

We may also prescribe medications that numb the bladder and urethra in order to relieve the pain or burning with urination.
