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.
From kidney and bladder procedures to prostate and office procedures, we provide the latest and most innovative operations for patients with urologic conditions requiring surgery. Our urologists are highly skilled in in the treatment of most urologic disorders and will treat your condition to ensure a safe and quick recovery.
Whether it's transurethral incisions or resection or laser procedure, Urology Associates uses the newest technology and methods to treat your urologic conditions. Our urologists are among the best when it comes to prostate procedures, and will diagnose and treat your disorder for a fast recovery.
Transrectal Biopsy of Prostate, Ultrasound Guided
A transrectal ultrasound guided biopsy of the prostate involves a urologist / Radiologist using ultrasound imaging to detect any abnormalities in the prostate. Biopsies remove small amounts of prostate tissue to analyze for diagnosis.
Transurethral Incision of Prostate (TUIP)
Transurethral incision of prostate, also referred to as TUIP, is a procedure used for the treatment of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), the enlargement of the prostate gland that results in urethral restriction causing difficulty in urination. Your doctor will consider your symptoms and will determine the best treatment for you.
Transurethral Resection of Prostate (TURP)
Transurethral resection of prostate, also referred to as TURP, is a procedure used for the treatment of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), the enlargement of the prostate gland that results in urethral restriction causing difficulty in urination.
Laser prostate operations
Laser vaporization or enucleation is a procedure used for the treatment of Benign Prostat Hyperplasia (BPH) for the enlargement of the prostate gland that results in urethral restriction causing difficulty in urination.The procedure uses high-powered laser light combined withfiber optics to quickly and accurately vaporize the tissue overgrowth of the prostate. Laser offers patients quick symptom relief, ease and comfort of urinary flow, and minimal short-term side effects, so can be used as an alternative to the transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) in high risk patients.
Prostatectomy — open or laparoscopic — simple or radical
Prostatectomy is surgery to remove part or all of the prostate gland. The procedure is used to treat a number of conditions affecting the prostate. Its most commonly used as a treatment for prostate cancer.Prostatectomy can be performed in several ways, depending on the condition involved. Options include minimally invasive surgery performed with laparoscopic and traditional open surgery.
We specialize in treating disorders of the kidney, which includes performing kidney procedures such as nephrectomy, minimally invasive surgery, nephrolithotomy, and more.
Shockwave Lithotripsy (SWL)
Shockwave Lithotripsy (SWL) is the most common treatment for kidney stones. Pressure waves are sent from outside the body to break apart the kidney stone or stones into tiny fragments, allowing an easier passage for the patient.
Ureteroscopy or RIRS Laser Lithotripsy of Stone
A ureteroscopy/ RIRS with laser lithotripsy is a procedure in which the doctor will use a rigid or flexible scope and a powerful laser to break apart large ureteric / kidney stones that cannot be passed naturally, treated with shockwave lithotripsy, or medication.
Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL) / Mini PERC
Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is a minimally invasive inpatient procedure used for kidney stones that cannot be passed naturally, treated with Shockwave Lithotripsy, or medication. PCNL is an excellent option for patients with large kidney stones (generally larger than 1.5 cm), multiple large stones, or stones resistant to prior treatment with other methods.
Open/ Laparoscopic — simple /Partial /Radical Nephrectomy
A laparoscopic partial nephrectomy is a minimally invasive surgery that removes the tumor from the kidney and leaves the healthy portion of the kidney.A laparoscopic radical nephrectomy is a minimally invasive surgery that removes your entire kidney with very small incisions in the presence of kidney disease or cancer.
Pyeloplasty — open / laparoscopic
Pyeloplasty is a type of surgery that repairs your ureter — a tube that attaches your kidney and bladder. This inpatient procedure, performed by a urologist, corrects ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction with either open or laparoscopic procedure.
From cystoscopies to radical cystectomies, the urologists at our hospital provide extensive coverage for patients with severe bladder conditions. Our urologists use the most innovative and successful techniques in bladder operations to ensure a quick recovery.
Cystoscopy is a diagnostic procedure that allows the doctors to get a direct look into the bladder, urethra, and prostate. A cystoscope is a small hollow tube with a lens and a light that allows visualization of the bladder. This procedure allows the doctor to look inside the bladder to make an evaluation to help diagnose a problem, take a tissue biopsy if needed, and is used to treat certain bladder problems.
Cystolithotrite / Cystolithitripsy
These are the most common procedure used to treat bladder stones. Bladder stones are hard deposits of minerals that form inside the bladder. Stones develop when the minerals in concentrated urine crystalize. This may occur when people have difficulty emptying their bladder completely.
Transurethral Resection of Bladder Tumor (TURBT)
Transurethral resection of a bladder tumor is a procedure in which the urologist diagnoses or treats a cancerous bladder tumor attached to the bladder wall. TURBT can be used to treat many different bladder disorders
Cystectomy with Ilea! Conduit /Neobladder
A cystectomy with an deal conduit] neo bladder is a procedure in which the urologist removesthe entire bladder and creates a new pouch to store urine or diverts urine as conduit. The urologist makes an incision in your lower belly, removes the bladder, and uses a piece of your small intestine to create a tube that links the uretersto abdominal wall ( Conduit ) or the new pouch that stores urine and passes urine through urethra ( Neobladder ).
Urinary incontinence operations
If you have severe symptoms of stress urinary incontinence or overactive bladder, surgery may provide a permanent solution to your problems. Our urologists give best results with minimally invasive procedures like TOT ,TVT, mini sling, Botulinum injection , male sling etc
Penis, Scrotal & Infertility
We provide the latest and best penis, scrotal, and infertility procedures for any reproductive condition.
Our urologists provide circumcision, or the removal of the skin covering the tip of the penis, for men who wish to undergo the operation. There is less risk of complication when the surgery is performed on a child, but adults still go home the day of the surgery and only experience minor pain for a couple days.
A hydrocelectomy is performed in a day care or IP setting. It is performed under anesthesia, taking approximately an hour. The operation involves making a small incision in the scrotum to drain the fluid around the testicle.
A varicocelectomy is a surgery that focuses on removing varicoceles, otherwise known as large veins that drain blood from the testicles. The urologist makes an incision in the groin and repair the veins causing the varicocele.
Our urologists perform vasectomies for males seeking a permanent form of birth control. During the procedure, the vas'deferens from each testicle is sealed off so sperm can no longer mix with the semen.
A vasectomy reversal is usually performed when the patient is under anesthesia. The urologist makes a small incision in the scrotum and views the vas deferens under a microscope. He/she then reattaches the tubes to let the sperm flow into the semen again
common testicular disorders include testicular trauma, torsion, and testicular cancer, An orchiectomy is the removal of one or both testicles, depending on if the affected individual has had a testicular injury, torsion, or infection. A radical orchiectomy removes the testicle and the spermatic cord for testicular cancer.
A penectomy is an operation that removes all or part of the penis in hopes of eliminating any sign of penile cancer.
An penile implant malleable or Inflatable can be implemented in the case of erectile dysfunction, Peyronie's disease, or other medical conditions in which a man can no longer maintain an erection or sexual function.
