Urological Treatments Offered
We offer the following urological treatments for Burundians in India are:
Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP)
It is a kind of surgery of the prostate which helps ameliorate urinary symptoms resulting from an enlarged prostate (which is also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia). A resectoscope is used to cut away redundant prostate tissues that block urinal flow.
Hospital stay of about three days is required.
GreenLight Laser Prostatectomy
GreenLight Laser treatment for BPH is a minimally invasive procedure that helps treat urinary symptoms caused by an enlarged prostate.
In this procedure, tiny fiber is inserted into the urethra through a cystoscope which channels high-power laser energy to the extra prostate tissues. The result is a wider channel for urine to flow through.
Average duration of hospital stay is two days.
Transurethral Resection of the Bladder Tumor (TURBT)
This procedure helps in the diagnosis and removal of cancers of the bladder. A cystoscope is passed up through the urethra into the bladder. Cancer tissues are cut away and burnt using a resectoscope.
On an average four days are required in the hospital.
Bladder Neck Incision (BNI)
This is a surgical procedure which helps improve urinary flow by removing stenosis in the bladder. A BNI involves making two cuts in the bladder neck area using a thin laser fiber or cutting instrument. Hospital stay is about three days.
Optical Internal Urethrotomy
It is a procedure that treats urethral strictures (scarring of the urethra) which may interfere with the normal urinal flow. An electronic knife with a telescope is used to remove that part of the stricture which may be obstructing the flow of urine.
Length of hospital stay is two days.
It is the surgical removal of bladder stones using laser energy which is directed through a firing fiber. On an average two days are required in the hospital.
Laparoscopic Radical Cystectomy
It is a minimally invasive option to traditional open radical cystectomy used to treat cancers of the bladder that have invaded muscles. Average length of hospital stay is seven days.
Ureteroscopic Removal of Bladder Stones
A ureteroscope is a device that is used to examine the urinary tract. It is used to find any bladder stones which are removed through a tiny basket attached to a thin wire inserted through an extra conduit in the ureteroscope. You will have to spend two days on an average for your bladder stone removal through ureteroscope.
Ureteral reimplant surgery helps correct any abnormally placed ureters that connect with the bladder. Improperly placed ureters force urine to flow back into the kidney in a condition known as vesicoureteral reflux.
Hospital stay required is five days.
Kidney Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL)
It is a surgical procedure which removes kidney stones sized 2cm or more. This is done by making a tiny puncture wound of about 1cm. Average length of hospitalization is three days.
