Renal stone and ureteric stones:
Management of Renal stones and ureteric stones includes Percutaneous nephrolithotomy. Retro grade intra renal surgery with laser fibers was done as a day care procedure
PCNL– Percutaneous nephrolithotomy is performed for treating large kidney stone with lithoclast or laser fibers. It is Key hole surgery that is performed through 1 cm incision with 2 days hospitalization and quick recovery.
Recently mini PCNL has launched in our hospital for the treatment of renal calculi, especially for pediatric age group.
The treatment of Genitourinary cancer like renal cell carcinoma , transitional cell carcinoma , prostate adeno carcinoma are management by Laparoscopy, endoscopy and combined procedures.
Laparoscopic nephrectomy is a minimally invasive procedure to remove the kidney, ureter for renal tumour and ureteric tumour. Laparoscopic procedures reduce hospital stay, less post operative pain, small incision and quick recovery to normal work.
It is highly specialized field of urology that restore both structures and function of Genito urinary system. Urethroplasty, Pyeloplasty are example of reconstructive urology performed for urethral strictures and pelvic ureteric junction obstruction.
To assess how bladder and urethra are performing the job of Storeing and releasing urine. Test is done for urinary incontinence, Neurogenic bladder, problem in emptying the bladder, stress urinary incontinence etc.
Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy
Trans urethral resection of prostate is the corner stone as endo urology for treating Benign prostatic hypertrophy. TURP is the common endourological procedure done for Benign prostate hypertrophy who failed in medical treatment.
Transplant into a patient who has End Stage Renal Disease. Live donor Transplantation is done who are only genetically related to the recipient. Deceased donors are brain dead donors and donation after cardiac death. Cadaver Transplantations can bridge the gap to some extent and reduce the waiting time for kidney transplantation. In past 5 years the numbers of deceased donors have more than doubled in PSG hospitals. The department has successfully performed more than 600 renal transplantations
