NEW YORK, NY, May 11, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Bilal I. Chughtai, MD, has been recognized as a 2023 Castle Connolly Top Doctor. Only about 7 percent of the nation's licensed physicians are selected annually as Castle Connolly Top Doctors in their regions for their specialties.

He is certified by the American Board of Urology, with subspecialty certification in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery.
Dr. Chughtai evaluates and treats a broad range of conditions and concerns in men and women, with a focus on voiding disorders, including neurogenic bladder and urinary incontinence; benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), prostatitis, and other non-cancerous prostate conditions.
He has a special focus on surgery for enlarged prostate and urinary incontinence. He also performs pelvic-floor reconstruction to treat female pelvic prolapse.
"My patients are dealing with stressful and sometimes emotionally challenging situations," Dr. Chughtai says. "I help them to be comfortable talking about these topics and make sure they understand their options. We then work together to find the best solution for them."
In addition to his clinical activities, Dr. Chughtai serves as an associate professor of urology at Weill Medical College of Cornell University.
Dr. Chughtai earned his medical degree at SUNY Stony Brook School of Medicine. He completed a four-year urology residency at Albany Medical Center and a two-year fellowship in urogynecology at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, with which he is affiliated.
