Female urethral stricture

A urethral stricture occurs when scarring narrows the tube that carries urine out of your body. A stricture restricts the flow of urine from the bladder and can cause a variety of medical problems in the urinary tract, including inflammation or infection.

Highly skilled Mayo Clinic expert, Dr. Steve Petrou, is one of the few urologists in the US who performs both minimally invasive and reconstructive surgical techniques to treat women with urethral stricture disease. Dr. Petrou is preparing a script for a video about female urethral stricture. What questions would you like him to address in the video?
