urology

The department of urology at Mann Mediciti offers a comprehensive urological service to diagnose and treat kidney stone disease, urological cancers, incontinence, infertility, impotence, female urology, paediatric urology, prostatic surgery and other urinary difficulties. The services offered are -


Comprehensive care for the urinary stone diseases

Stone disease is a very common problem all over the world. Approximately 60% of stone s can be managed by lithotripsy and rest of stones needs various endourological procedures to remove the stones without open surgery.


Percutaneous renal surgery

Here 1 cm hole is made in kidney to remove stones after breaking it into smaller pieces. There is a minimal pain and discomfort and patients can go home in 48 hours. Even bigger stones and stag horn stones can be safely managed with this modality. Some of the patients may also need help of lithotripsy to get complete stone removal.


Intra-renal stone surgery by flexible scopes

Here flexible scopes are passed through the urethra (from where one passes urine) and stones are removed after breaking into smaller pieces by laser. Here again patients can be discharged within 24 to 48 hours.


Endourology

All aspects of Endourology (surgery through a telescope, which does not require open procedures) including treatment of prostate (TURP), bladder cancers (TURBT), urethral strictures, kidney and ureteric stones (PCNL & URS) are available. Intracorporeal Lithotripsy (breaking of stones using endoscopes) using the pneumatic lithotripsy is also available.


Minimally Invasive surgery (Keyhole or laparoscopic surgery)

Most of the urological surgery can be performed by keyhole surgery. Most of kidney surgery whether it is for benign disease or for cancer can be safely performed laparoscopically. In the same way many other urological cancer surgery like prostate cancer or ureteric cancer can also be done without cutting the abdomen. Mann Mediciti offers all kinds of laparoscopic surgery for urological disease. Major advantage is less pain, small scar or no scar, early discharge and early return to work.


Laparoscopic Donor nephrectomy

Now donor can donate one of the kidney to their loved on without much pain and discomfort. Even kidney retrieval incision is not seen and donor can go home in two to three days.


Laser for prostatic surgery

Men after the age of 50 years suffer from urinary problems like going to toilet frequently, poor control of urine or difficulty of passing urine etc. It is because of enlargement of the prostate, which can be removed safely by endoscopic method.


Video Urodynamics

The most advanced fully computerised video urodynamic machines, which will diagnose all kinds of incontinence and difficulty in passing urine so as to enable the right treatment. These machines also include 'EMG' facilities that are a must for diagnosing urinary and bowel problems secondary to spinal injuries stroke, parkinsonism and other neurological disorders. This laboratory has well designed facilities for the entire range of studies including uroflownmetry, filling and voiding cystometry, urethral pressure profile studies (UPP) and VCUG (in addition to EMG and cavernosometry).


Female Urology

Urinary incontinence (urinary leak) and other urinary problems like urgency (going to the toilet frequently) and stress incontinence (leaking of urine with cough and laughing or straining) can be investigated and treated with minimally invasive methods.


Paediatric urology

Children suffer from various urological problems, which needs investigations. Most of the problem again can be managed by endoscopic and laparoscopic methods.


Reconstructive urology

Many reconstructive urological surgeries like pyeloplasty, urethral stricture surgery, hypospedias surgery and other congenital disorder are reconstructed routinely. Some of these reconstructive surgeries are done by keyhole surgery
