What is urethral stricture disease?

A urethral stricture is a narrowing in the urethra due to scar tissue, which blocks the normal flow of urine from the bladder. Signs and symptoms include a decreased stream, difficulty or straining with urination, incomplete bladder emptying, pain with urination, and urinary tract infection. Causes include sexually transmitted infections, trauma to the urethra/perineum/pelvis, prior urethral instrumentation/surgery/catheter, radiation (typically for prostate cancer), and lichen sclerosus, a chronic, inflammatory condition that involves the genital skin and urethra. Often times, the urethral stricture has an unknown cause.

Dr. Cheng did a fellowship in reconstructive urology, which has a special focus on urethroplasty surgery.
