Urology is a part of health care that deals with diseases of the male and
female urinary tract (kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra). It also deals
with the male organs that are able to make babies (penis, testes, scrotum,
prostate, etc.). Since health problems in these body parts can happen to
everyone, urologic health is important.
Urology is known as a surgical specialty. Besides surgery, a urologist is a doctor with wisdom of internal medicine, pediatrics, gynecology and other parts of health care. This is because a urologist encounters a wide range of clinical problems. The scope of urology is big and the American Urological Association has named seven subspecialty parts:
Some of our exceptional services include Laparoscopic Urological Surgery, ABO Incompatible Kidney Transplant, Renal Transplantation, Uro-Oncology, Reconstructive Surgery of Urinary Tract, and laser urological procedures. In addition to this, we have also installed intuitive surgical Da Vinci XI Robotic System to perform highly complex urological procedures like radical cystectomy, radical prostatectomy, partial nephrectomy, etc. All of the urological surgeries are performed laparoscopically to ensure great precision for improved patient outcomes.
The Da Vinci robotic technology ( Drop down click button) The Da Vinci robotic technology is the most advanced platform for minimally invasive surgery available today. It enables surgeons to perform delicate and complex surgeries through a few tiny incisions, instead of giving the patient a big cut. The system has an ergonomically designed console where the surgeon sits while operating. The hand movements of the surgeon are converted into corresponding micro-movements of instruments inside the patient’s body.
The technology uses an externally-applied, focused, high-intensity acoustic pulse to break a urinary or kidney stone into small pieces that can more easily travel through the urinary tract and pass out with urine in a few days or weeks. It is usually an outpatient procedure and takes about an hour to do. Sedatives or anaesthetics may be used for patient comfort. Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL) is a safe procedure and may be used on children and on individuals with only one working kidney.
MRI/TRUS Fusion system for 3D targeted prostate biopsy management
A revolutionary imaging and 3D navigation system that provides a complete prostate biopsy management platform. The system has the ability to take information available in MR and use it in conjunction with your standard ultrasound guided biopsy. Using robotic principles that mimic the physicians arm, the machine increases the accuracy, robustness and reliability of performing a MRI/US Fusion-Targeted Biopsy.
Urodynamics is a technique of assessing the pressure-flow relationship between the bladder and the urethra for the purpose of defining the functional status of the lower urinary tract.
