Urology

Altru’s Urology department’s expert providers specialize in diseases of the urinary tract in both males and females.  Prior to seeing a member of the Urology team, patients should see their primary care provider to rule out other causes of symptoms.  Your primary care provider and urology team will work together to help choose the best treatment for your needs and lifestyle.

Urology is located in Altru Professional Center (main entrance door #13). To make an appointment, call 701.780.6427, or toll-free at 800.437.5373.


Incontinence

Incontinence can be an embarrassing and inconvenient problem, however, it is treatable. There is medication or minimally invasive surgical options, or the combination of each to correct the condition.

The cause of urinary incontinence can range from loss of support of the pelvic floor structure (usually caused by childbirth) to an overall poorly functioning bladder.

Altru’s Urology department now offers InterStim Neuromodulator Therapy for the treatment of overactive bladder or fecal incontinence. For more information, please discuss with your primary care or Urology provider.
