Department and Services
The urology department at RR Hospital & Research Centre offers a comprehensive urological service to diagnose and treat kidney stone problems, urological cancers, incontinence, male infertility, impotence, female urology, paediatric urology, prostatic surgery and other urinary difficulties.
Stone disease (calculi) is a very common problem all over the world. Percutaneous renal surgery: Here a 1 cm hole is made in the kidney to remove stones, after breaking them into smaller pieces - the pain and discomfort is minimum, and the patient can go home in 48 hours.
Ureteroscopy: Calculi from all parts of the Genitourinary system can be removed by this route without any hole, only natural passages are used. Patient can be discharged on the same day. Instruments are rigid, semi rigid and flexible. Laser energy is a good option for calculi fragmentation.
Intra-renal stone surgery by flexible scopes and laser lithotripsy: Here, flexible scopes are passed through the urethra (from where one passes urine) and stones are removed after breaking them into smaller pieces by laser. The patients can be discharged within 24 to 48 hours.
Endourology is a surgery through a telescope, which does not require open procedures - this helps in treatment of prostate (TURP), bladder cancers (TURBT), urethral strictures, kidney and ureteric stones (PCNL & URS). We also have intracorporeal lithotripsy (breaking of stones using endoscopes) using the pneumatic lithotripsy / laser fragmentation.
Most urological cancer surgeries like prostate cancer or ureteric cancer can be done without cutting the abdomen. We have all kinds of Keyhole surgeries for urological disease. The major advantages are less pain, small scar or no scar, early discharge and early return to work.
