Reconstructive Urology

The reconstructive urology team at Ramkrishna CARE Hospitalsoffers highly specialized; tertiary service for various conditions such as urethral strictures, post prostatectomy and post radiotherapy complications, as well as congenital urological abnormalities, such as exstrophy, external trauma and incontinence.

Endo-urology

Endo-urology deals with the closed manipulation of the urinary tract — surgery is performed through a telescope and does not involve open procedures. An endo-urology procedure is performed using small cameras and instruments, which are inserted into the urinary tract. All aspects of endo-urology, including treatment of prostate (transurethral resection of the prostate — TURP), bladder cancers (TURBT), urethral strictures, kidney and ureteric stones (percutaneous nephrolithotomy — and uteroscopic lithotripsy — URSL) are available at CARE Hospitals. Intracorporeal lithotripsy (breaking of stones using endoscopes) by using pneumatic lithotripsy is also performed. Most of the urinary tract can be reached via the urethra, enabling prostate surgery, surgery of tumors of the urothelium, stone surgery and simple urethral and ureteral procedures.

Neuro-urology

Many neurological conditions can cause problems involving the bladder and the bowels. Neurological conditions can also affect the sexual functions. The Institute of Urology at Ramkrishna CARE Hospitalsadopts a multidisciplinary approach in helping people with such difficulties. The institute is led by specialists in clinical neurology of the bladder and sexual dysfunction to treat patients with voiding problems due to neurological diseases and related urinary symptoms.
