Ureteroscopy (URS): It is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a tiny telescope to remove a stone from the ureter. In many cases, a laser is used to split the stone into smaller pieces, which may subsequently be removed using a gripping device.
Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP): One part of the prostate is removed during TURP surgery, which entails cutting through the bladder wall to reach the prostate. Men only have the prostate, a tiny gland in their pelvis, and a membrane that protects the urethra and connects the penis to the bladder (the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the penis).
Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL): It is a minimally invasive method for removing stones from the urinary, pancreatic, and biliary systems. Shock waves are fired at stones by a urologist with the use of X-rays or ultrasound, and the stones may be identified. After ESWL, kidney and ureter stones are more likely to dislodge on their own.
Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL): A one-centimeter incision is made in the patient’s flank to execute the procedure. X-ray guidance is used to insert a catheter into the kidney. Finally, a telescope is used to see, shatter, and remove the kidney stone from the patient’s body.
Laser with Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery (RIRS): Endoscopic surgery known as RIRS enables the kidney to be supplied with blood through the ureter. These procedures require the use of a flexible ureteroscope. The holmium laser fibre is used to treat stones with this technology. A basket may next be used to remove any remaining fragments.
Adrenalectomy: Three very tiny (1 cm) incisions are created by urologists in the belly to accomplish the procedure. These keyhole incisions enable the surgeon to release and dissect the damaged adrenal gland without having to put his hands into the stomach.
Vasectomy: A urology doctor may perform a vasectomy at an office, hospital, or outpatient clinic. Sperm cannot leave your body and cause pregnancy if the tiny tubes in your scrotum carrying sperm are severed or obstructed. You’ll be able to return home the same day when the treatment is complete.
Laparoscopic Nephrectomy: A laparoscope (a small piece of camera-equipped equipment) and a few small incisions are used in laparoscopic nephrectomy. Surgeons using robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery may operate a surgical robot to manage these tiny instruments and tools. There is just one major incision with an open kidney removal.
Laparoscopic Ureterolithotomy: To remove stones from the ureter, a laparoscopic ureterolithotomy operation is used. The ureter is located between the kidneys and the bladder.This tube carries urine to the bladder.
Laparoscopic Pyeloplasty: Pyeloplasty Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive treatment for repairing ureter-to-kidney attachments that have been narrowed or scarred by constriction or scarring.
Hypospadias Surgery: Hypospadias correction is a surgical procedure to fix a congenital abnormality in the penis’s opening. It is most often performed on boys between the ages of six months and two years. It is an outpatient procedure. Most of the time, a kid’s hospital stay is just a few hours long. Boys with hypospadias should not be circumcised when they are born. During surgery, more foreskin tissue may be required to fix the hypospadias.
Urethroplasty: It’s an open procedure to treat an abnormality in the urinary tract known as urethral stricture. It is an open procedure, unlike urethral dilations or stricture incisions, in which a skin incision is made and the urethral stricture is repaired directly. Buccal graft urethroplasty, end-to-end urethroplasty, and complex urethroplasty are performed at our urology hospital.
Prostate Cancer Surgery: Radical prostatectomy, the most frequent method for removing the whole prostate gland, is the most common surgery for treating prostate cancer. For severe or metastatic prostate cancer, surgery may also be performed in conjunction with other treatments.
Open prostate cancer surgery: To remove the prostate and any adjacent tissues using an open approach to prostate cancer surgery, the surgeon makes an incision in one of two probable locations. An incision is made from the belly button to the pubic bone during a radical retropubic prostatectomy. Between the anus and the scrotum is where a radical perineal prostatectomy is carried out.
Laparoscopic prostate cancer surgery: Smaller incisions and surgical instruments are used in laparoscopic techniques for radical prostatectomy. A device with a video camera attached to its end is used by the surgeon to see into the patient’s body. Patients often have less pain and blood loss as a consequence of this procedure, as well as a speedier recovery and shorter hospital stays.
