Urology is the branch of medicine that focuses on conditions that affect the urinary tracts of men and women as well as the male reproductive system. The urinary tract includes the kidneys, ureters and urinary bladder. They work together as a human being’s drainage system and are essential in the removal of wastes in the form of urine. Common urologic conditions or diseases include urinary tract infections, prostate problems, bladder control issues and many others.
Kidneys are one of the most vital organs in the body, working continuously to remove waste and excess fluid, releasing essential hormones and maintaining electrolyte balance. Doctors in the Department of Urology at Sagar Hospitals work with patients to diagnose and treat kidney-related conditions such as chronic kidney disease, kidney stones, glomerulonephritis, polycystic kidney disease, renal artery stenosis, kidney cancer, kidney failure, nephrotic syndrome and many others.
The Department is well equipped with state-of-the-art facilities used to treat urologic problems. These facilities include Green Light Laser and Holmium Laser for enlarged prostate, Shockwave Therapy or Lithotripsy for the treatment of kidney stones and advanced laparoscopic equipment used in kidney transplantation and other complicated procedures.
