Urology & Neurourology
Urology is a branch of medicine which specializes in the treatment of conditions and diseases of the male and female urinary tract system and the male reproductive system. Urologists diagnose and treat various conditions and disorders associated with the kidneys, bladder, ureters, urethra and the male reproductive organs such as prostate, penis, and testes. They are dedicated to clinical excellence in urology care and patient education so patients can make informed decisions about their healthcare.
Urinary and fecal incontinence (Incontinence)
- Multichannel urodynamic tests (uroflowmetry, cystometry, pressure/flow study, urethral pressure profile, US post voiding residual evaluation, pelvic floor EMG)
- Diagnostic/operative flexible and rigid cystoscopy
- Somato Sensorial Evoked Potentials (SSEPs) , pelvic floor EMG, sacral area reflexes ( performed by neurophysiologist )
- Rectal manometry (performed by coloproctologist)
- ColorDoppler US for ED and infertility
- Pelvic floor electrical stimulation (FES) and bio-feedback (BFB)
- Posterior tibial neuro stimulation (PTNS) invasive and transcutaneous
- Clean intermittent catheterization (CIC)
- Trans cutaneous sacral and pudendal neurostimulation
Therapeutic minimally invasive therapy
- One day Surgery (circumcision, vasectomy, hydrocelectomy, varicocele, TURB, TURP, endoscopic lithotripsy of renal and bladder stones, penile surgery for erectile dysfunction)
- Sacral roots neuromodulation for urinary and fecal incontinence, retention and CPP
- Pudendal nerve neuromodulation for urinary and fecal incontinence, retention and CPP
- Pudendal and obturator muscle nerve block for pharmacologic modulation of CPP
- Pulsed radiofrequency of pudendal nerve for CPP
- Intravesical instillation of drugs for Interstitial Cystitis
Non – Scapel Vasectomy
What is vasectomy?
Vasectomy is the procedure of choice for men who do not want to father any children (or any additional children). It is indicated for any fully informed man and can be carried out as an outpatient procedure. If the patient has previous scrotal surgery or has any other possible complicating factors (e.g. a needle phobia), the procedure can be carried out under a short general anaesthetic. The non-scalpel vasectomy (NSV) is an innovative approach to exposing the vas deferens tubes in the scrotum using two specialized surgical instruments. NSV, as compared to traditional incision technique, results in less bleeding and hematoma, less infection, and pain, and a shorter operative time.
