Urology Services:

Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL)

Percutaneous nephrolithotomy, also known as percutaneous nephrolithotomy with lithotripsy, is a minimally invasive surgical technique used to remove kidney stones. The patient is anesthetized and a small incision is made in the lower back. 

The stone is removed through the incision and the surrounding tissues are cleaned up. PCNL typically takes less than two hours to complete.

Ureteroscopic lithotripsy

Ureteroscopic Lithotripsy (URSL)

Ureteroscopic lithotripsy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to treat kidney stones. During the procedure, a thin, telescope-like instrument called a lithotripter is inserted through the urethra into the kidney. The lithotripter uses high-frequency vibrations to break up the stone and remove it from the kidney. 

Ureteroscopic lithotripsy is often successful in removing small stones without requiring surgery or medication, thus it is also called Non-Surgical Kidney Stone Removal.

Transurethral Eesection of the Prostate (TURP)

Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to treat prostate cancer. TURP involves inserting a thin tube through the urethra into the prostate, cutting out the cancerous section, and then resecting (cutting away) the surrounding tissue. The surgery is typically done using an electric cautery device to minimize damage to nearby nerves. 

There are several advantages to TURP over traditional surgery, including decreased pain and shorter hospital stays.

Laparoscopic Nephrectomy

Laparoscopic Nephrectomy (LN) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that removes the entire kidney through a small incision in the side. It is usually performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia with minimal to no pain after surgery. The recovery time is typically short and patients can resume their normal activities within a few days.

Laparoscopic Pyeloplasty

Laparoscopic pyeloplasty, also known as laparoscopic ureteral reconstruction (LUCR), is a minimally invasive surgery that restores urinary flow by replacing the damaged or diseased kidney or ureter. The procedure is often done as an outpatient procedure, and most patients are able to go back to their normal activities immediately following surgery.

Urethroplasty

Urethroplasty is a surgical procedure that restores urinary function in men and women. 

The surgery is performed by removing the prostate and urethra, and then rebuilding them using new tissue.

Penile Prosthesis

A penile implant is an implantable medical device that may be a good option for men who have a medical condition called erectile dysfunction. A penile prosthesis may be implanted during surgery in cases where the curvature of an erection has caused scarring which has led to problems. These devices help with erections and can have a positive impact on sexual function.

Partial and Radical Cystectomy

If you have bladder cancer that has spread, it may be necessary to consider surgery. Depending on the extent of the spread, there are two options: a partial cystectomy or a radical one.

A partial cystectomy is a surgical procedure that removes part of a large cyst. 

A radical cystectomy is a more extreme form of partial cystectomy in which all or most of the cyst is removed. Partial and radical cystectomies are both considered safe and effective procedures for treating large, benign, noncancerous tumors in the bladder.

BPH - Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

BPH - Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

Benign prostatic hyperplasia also called as prostate gland enlargement is a condition in which the prostate gland becomes enlarged and causes difficulty in urination. The cause of BPH is not known, but it may be caused by age, obesity, hormones, or genetics. If left untreated, BPH can lead to problems such as urinary obstruction, sexual difficulties, and incontinence.

Treatment options for BPH include medications, surgery, and minimally invasive treatments. Minimally invasive treatments are less invasive than surgery and usually have shorter recovery times. One type of minimally invasive treatment is called transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). This treatment uses a scope to remove the enlarged prostate tissue.A newer minimally invasive treatment for BPH is called the UroLift system.

Bladder Cancer

Bladder cancer is a type of cancer that starts in the bladder. The bladder is a balloon-like organ in the lower abdomen that stores urine. Bladder cancer can cause blood in the urine, pain when urinating, and other problems. Bladder cancer is treated with surgery, radiation therapy, or chemotherapy. 

Treatment usually includes surgery to remove the tumor and chemotherapy and radiation therapy to kill any remaining cancer cells.

Kidney Cancer

Kidney cancer is a rare type of cancer that starts in the kidneys. It is also called renal cell carcinoma. Kidney cancer can be difficult to diagnose and treat, because it often does not cause any symptoms until it has spread to other parts of the body. Kidney cancer is also called renal cancer or renal cell carcinoma. The treatment for kidney cancer depends on the type and stage of the disease. 

Surgery may be used to remove part or all of a kidney, if it has been determined that surgery is an appropriate treatment option. If surgery is not an option, chemotherapy may be prescribed as a treatment for kidney cancer.

Testicular Cancer

Testicular cancer is a type of cancer that starts in the testicles. It can affect men of any age but it most often occurs in men aged 15-35.

The early stages of testicular cancer are difficult to diagnose, which is why it is important for men to be aware of the symptoms and get themselves checked out if they suspect anything. If caught early, treatment for testicular cancer is usually successful.

There are three main types of treatment:

• Surgery – the tumor is removed and some lymph nodes may be taken out (if there is a risk that cancer cells have spread)

• Radiation therapy – radiation therapy on the testicles can shrink or destroy any remaining cancer cells

• Chemotherapy – chemotherapy destroys all dividing cells, including healthy ones. Chemotherapy may be given before surgery or after to kill any remaining cancer cells

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)

If you have risk factors for coronary artery disease, there are things you can do to help prevent it. Eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, and maintaining a healthy weight are all important steps. You should also avoid smoking and drinking alcohol. If you have high blood pressure or high cholesterol, keep them under control by taking medication as prescribed. If you’re over 40, talk to your doctor about getting a cholesterol screening.

The symptoms of a heart attack can vary from person to person, but typically include chest pain, shortness of breath, nausea, and sweating. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to seek medical help immediately.

Cholesterol is a type of lipid found in the blood. It is vital for normal body function, but if there is too much cholesterol in the blood, it can cause serious health problems. There are two types of cholesterol: HDL and LDL. HDL is termed “good” cholesterol because it forbids bad cholesterol from building up in the arteries. LDL is the “bad” cholesterol because it can cause plaque deposition on the inside of the arteries, leading to heart disease. Several ways to lower your cholesterol include diet, exercise, and medication.

An arrhythmia is an abnormal heart rhythm. It can cause the heart to beat too fast, too slow, or in an irregular pattern. Arrhythmias can be minor and not cause any problems. Or they can be serious and lead to heart failure or sudden death.

Cardiac rehab is a medically supervised program that helps people who have undergone any cardiovascular procedures to get back to their normal lives. The program includes exercise, education, and counseling. It can help reduce the risk of a heart attack or stroke, and can also help control blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
