The urinary tract includes the organ system primarily responsible for cleaning and
filtering excess fluid and waste material from the blood. The urinary system comprises
the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. The kidneys also function as glands that
produce hormones necessary for building red blood cells and regulating blood pressure.
Many disorders of the urinary system require clinical care by a physician or other
health care professional. Listed in the directory below are some, for which we have
