Trans Urethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP): It is a surgical procedure to treat patients with an enlarged, non-cancerous prostate called Benign Prostate Hyperplasia.
Pediatric Urology: It deals with the surgical disease of the genitourinary system of children up to the age of 15 years.
Uro-Oncology: This is an endoscopic surgery of the urinary tract performed with the help of an endoscopic device used to view the interior of an organ or a cavity.
Reconstructive Urology: It is usually performed in case of urinary tract injuries, congenital deformities, cancer treatments etc.
Laparoscopy: Laparoscopic techniques involve making small incisions (1 cm or less) for treating benign conditions like swelling in the kidneys and cancerous conditions in the kidney, bladder or the prostate. It is also known as keyhole surgery. Kingsway Hospital is one of the few hospitals in the count an advanced form of laparoscopic surgery, known as the 3D Laparoscopy.
3D laparoscopy offers doctors a complete, 3-dimensional view of the affected part. It is an improvement over traditional laparoscopy as it involves reduced blood loss, smaller incisions and hence, faster rate of recovery.
Kidney Stones, also known as Renal Calculi, are solid deposits of crystals, usually composed of calcium oxalate which typically occur in kidneys, but can also develop in other parts of the urinary tract such as the bladder, urethra and the ureter. While drinking adequate amounts of water or taking certain medications such as pain-relievers, diuretics and alpha-blocker drugs break down the smaller stones, stones which are larger in size require specialized medical interventions.
The common procedures to treat kidney stones are:
Lithotripsy: Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy uses sound waves to create strong vibrations that can break up large stones into smaller pieces which can then be easily expelled from the body. The patient may be sedated before the procedure begins, which can last for about an hour.
Ureteroscopy: This procedure is performed when the stone is located close to the bladder. The surgeon inserts a thin tube through the urinary tract and breaks up the stones. The fragments are then removed through the tube.
Surgery: A surgical procedure called percutaneous nephrolithotomy, by which kidney stones are removed through a small incision in the person’s back may be performed if the lithotripsy was unsuccessful.
