Gay and Bisexual Men's Urology Program

The Northwestern Medicine Gay and Bisexual Men’s Urology Program is designed to improve the urologic care experience, outcomes and quality of life for patients who were assigned male at birth (AMAB) and identify as gay or bisexual. Care is delivered in a respectful, safe space, backed by research. With care and resources tailored to the needs of these patients, we provide an inclusive environment where sexual orientation and sexual health can be openly and comfortably discussed with providers. These are key factors in the treatment decision-making process; our healthcare team works to understand what is important to patients and respects these priorities when suggesting treatment options.
