Ureteral Strictures

A ureteral stricture is a narrowing in the tube that carries urine from the kidney to the bladder. When a narrowing in the ureter occurs, (for example, by urinary stones), the kidney cannot function normally and will become damaged over time. Also, dilation of the kidney (called hydronephrosis) will occur.  

If you are experiencing pain or having problems when urinating, talk to us. Our team of urologists at City of Hope are experts who use leading-edge methods to diagnose and treat the various urologic conditions that affect millions of men.
