Urology at Middlesex Hospital
Urological problems and diseases can sometimes be a sensitive subject. As a patient, you want a urology team with specialists dedicated to providing care that is both effective and sensitive to your personal needs.
At Middlesex Hospital, our urology team provides that personal care you may be looking for. Our board-certified urologists provide up-to-date, personalized evaluation of urological problems, including those of the urinary system in children and adults, and those of the genital system in men.
Among these problems are benign and malignant diseases of the kidneys, adrenal gland, bladder, and diseases of the prostate. Male infertility and sexual dysfunction are treated with the most current techniques, as are incontinence and urinary stone disease. Laser treatment for stones, skin lesions and strictures is available, and extracorporeal shock wave lithotriptors are used for the treatment of stone disease.

Middlesex Hospital is proud to be one of the first hospitals in Connecticut to voluntarily participate in major quality programs conducted by several government and healthcare industry organizations.
The foremost quality program in which we participate is called "Core Measures." These quality measures were developed by The Joint Commission — the nation’s foremost accrediting body in health care — and based on quality indicators from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Adherence to Core Measures has been shown to improve patient outcomes dramatically.
