The Department of Urology offers complete outpatient and inpatient services related to the male and female urinary tract and the male reproductive system. The kidneys, adrenal glands, ureters, urinary bladder, urethra and male reproductive organs come under the purview of the urologist.
Typically, the patients we see in urology department are referred to us with kidney stones and ureteric stones, prostate enlargement, stricture urethra, hydronephrosis, kidney tumours, prostate and urinary bladder cancers, male infertility and sexual dysfunction. Renal, bladder, ureteral, prostate and testicular tumours are treated at the Department. Most tumours are treated laparoscopically.
A dedicated team offers stoma care for those who require urostomy. A screening programme for bladder and prostate cancers is also offered. The Department has all the latest endo-urological instruments including a laser machine for expert management of elective and emergency urological procedures. Most of the extirpative and reconstructive urological procedures are done by laparoscopic methods.
In renal transplantation, the renal graft is often procured through laparoscopic donor nephrectomy. Cancers that involve the kidneys, bladder and ureter are also dealt with laparoscopically. Our surgeons in our urology department routinely perform complex procedures such as complete reconstruction of the urinary tract, repair of uro-gynecological fistulae, reconstruction of urethral strictures, and reconstruction for diseases like TB and following cancer surgery. Surgical correction is done of congenital abnormalities like congenital pelvi-ureteric obstruction, megaureter and vesico-ureteric reflux, and of genital anomalies like hypospadias, epispadias exstrophy complex and cryptorchidism.
