Fistula

At Andrology Barcelona, we're here to shed light on how we tackle urogenital fistulas—a condition that can disrupt the connection between the urinary system and nearby areas like the rectum or skin.

What is a fistula?

A urogenital fistula is like an ‘unusual pathway’ between the urinary tract and other parts of the body, such as the rectum or skin. This can cause urine or feces to involuntarily exit through unusual places.

At Andrology Barcelona, we’re dedicated to finding personalized solutions to enhance our patients’ quality of life. With Dr. Lluis Peri, an expert urologist in Barcelona, leading the way, we provide specialized care for urogenital fistulas.
