Urinary Stone Disease is collectively known as urolithiasis, nephrolithiasis, kidney stones, and nephrocalcinosi, and indicates the presence of stones and calcification within the urinary tract. Urolithiasis is about the formation of stones in the urinary and bladder, nephrolithiasis is of kidney stones and nephrocalcinosi is of the calcium deposits…
Uroflowmetry uses a special instrument to evaluate if the urine flow is normal or obstructed. This is a diagnostic screening procedure, where the person is directed to pass urine into a funnel attached to a measuring instrument.
A penile implant is a modern option for men having a medical condition in erectile dysfunction(ED). At times, a penile prosthesis is implanted during surgery to reconstruct the penis when scarring has caused erections to curve, also called Peyronie's disease.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), which is also known as prostate gland enlargement, blocks the normal urine flow in aged men. This condition can cause problems of the urinary tract system including kidneys and bladder.
Urethroplasty is an open surgical reconstruction or replacement of the urethra that has been narrowed by scar tissue and spongiofibrosis (urethral stricture). There are over a dozen different types of methods to treat urethral strictures.
When you have bladder cancer that has spread into the bladder wall or has come back after initial treatment, your urologists may gently advise you to go in for its removal. Depending on the spread, they may suggest either a partial or radical cystectomy or bladder removal to treat the cancer.
Lithotripsy is a non-invasive procedure that uses high-energy shock waves or lasers to break down and eliminate bothersome stones in the kidney, quickly and effectively. During the procedure, a special machine called a lithotripter generates the shock waves that travel into your body and break apart the stones.
There are different types of bladder cancers and these are diagnosed by the Urology department, with the use of telescopic examinations, namely cystoscopy. A biopsy is done to assess the nature of cancer. Treatments will be based on the type of bladder cancer found and this can involve medications being placed in the bladder directly followed by surgery,…
Tumors in the kidney need to be handled by specialists depending on the level of advancement of cancer when it is diagnosed. Early treatment can help patients live cancer-free lives.
This type of cancer is observed in younger men, mostly in their twenties or thirties. It could be indicated by bumps, lumps, hardened testicles or size changes. If diagnosed early, it can be treated successfully.
Urology, also known as genitourinary surgery is a branch of medicine that deals with conditions related to the urinary tract and the male reproductive system. Urologists are specialists who diagnose and treat conditions related to the genitourinary system. In some cases, they may also perform surgery such as kidney stone removal, prostate surgery and removal of bladder tumours.

As urology involves the care of multiple physiological systems and organs, it can be further classified into the following subspecialties.
Endourology is a subspecialty that involves the use of small instruments and internal endoscopes to view the urinary tract and perform surgery. As these procedures are done without extensive incisions, it is known as laparoscopic or minimally invasive surgery.
Some of the commonly carried out procedures in our hospital include:
Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HOLEP)
Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL)
Retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS)
Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP)
Endoscopic removal of Bladder Stones
Optical Internal urethrotomy
Partial and Radical Cystectomy
Reconstructive urology aids in restoring the normal functions of the urinary tract by rerouting, repairing, or recreating areas of the urinary tract and reproductive organs. It is generally required for birth defects, injuries, or to correct adverse effects of surgery or other treatment.
Our Center of Reconstructive Urology offers excellent results for all variety of upper and lower tract reconstructive problems including
Lap/ Robotic Pyeloplasty
Ileal replacement of Ureter
The department also provides a whole range of urethral and genital reconstruction procedures.
Besides, urethroplasty using buccal mucosa or penile skin is routinely carried out for complex urethral strictures.
Robotic and laparoscopic surgery is one of the essential streams in minimally invasive surgical procedures to manage various urologic disorders, including cancerous and benign conditions. These procedures are carried out through small incisions with the help of a camera and surgical instruments.
We are one of the few hospitials in India where Advanced Laparoscopic Urology is being performed regularly.
Cancers of the urology organs covered by uro-oncologist include the kidneys, adrenal glands, ureters, urinary bladder cancer, kidney urethra, and the male reproductive organs (testes, epididymis, testicular cancer, bladder cancer, kidney cancer, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate, and penis).
The following cancer operations are performed here:
Radical nephrectomy, partial nephrectomy, radical nephroureterectomy (lap/ robotic)
Radical cystectomy with neo-bladder reconstruction, radical prostatectomy (lap /robotic)
Total or partial penectomy with inguinal lymph node dissection
