Urology Treatment in India- List of procedures for Urology

( This is a partial list. Please Enquire for the procedure you need and we will respond! )

Radical Prostatectomy in India:

Radical Prostatectomy is a surgery in which a urologist removes the prostate gland completely Radical prostatectomy is normally performed when cancer affects the prostate gland, especially when the cancer is confined to the prostate and has not yet spread to other parts of the body In this situation, the removal of the prostate in its entirety, very often results in a complete cure from cancer This procedure can be done either through open surgery or laparoscopically. Please see below for further details.

Open Surgery for Radical Prostatectomy in India:

Radical prostatectomy has historically been done as an open surgery where the incision is made in the lower belly or in the perineum Apart from removing the prostate, the surgeon may also remove the lymph nodes for biopsy The surgery is performed under local anaesthesia and would require the patient to stay in the hospital for approximately 5 days.

Laparoscopic Radical Prostatectomy in India:

Radical Prostatectomies are now routinely done using the laparoscopic method. Here, instead of one large incision, the surgeon makes a few small incisions in the belly One incision is used to insert the light source, while the other incisions are used to operate the instruments to conduct the surgery The incisions being much smaller, recovery from surgery is much quicker compared with open surgery

Robotic Surgery for Radical Prostatectomy in India:

Our associate hospitals in India are amongst the very few in Asia which offer Robotic Surgeries.
Of late, the da Vinci robot is being used to assist in radical prostatectomies Several leading hospitals in India offer robotic surgery is for carrying out radical prostatectomies.

During robotic surgery, the surgeon sits at the console at which s/he can view magnified 3-D images of the anatomy of the patient The surgeon has foot and joystick-like hand controls which are used to ' perform' the surgery. The hand and wrist movements of the surgeon are picked up by the robot and replicated without error but on a smaller scale The robot eliminates tremor effects from the surgeon's hands and allows minute movements during delicate phases of the surgery.

The high resolution camera clearly displays the presence of small blood vessels which can be spared Greater reach and dexterity is made possible because of the 360 degree turning flexibility of the wrist of the da Vinci Robot The use of the da Vinci Robot allows high precision in incisions, cauterising, resection (removal of tissue) and suturing The efficiency of the robotic arm also enables surgery with minimal blood loss.

Lithotripsy in India for Removal of Kidney Stones:

Kidney stones can be removed without any surgery through the use of sound waves. This procedure is called a lithotripsy and does not involve any incisions or cut what so ever. Soundwaves directed at the targeted kidney stones which are broken up into smaller pieces by the impact of the waves. These splintered stones are then evacuated from the kidney through a catheter tube that is put in place. Lithotripsy can be done as an outpatient procedure. For some patients more than one sitting may be required in order to remove all the stones

Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL) Key hole surgery for kidney stones in India:

While the vast majority of kidney stones can be treated through lithotripsy, there are some situations where surgery is the right option For example, those cases where the Renal stones are greater than 3 cms in diameter, or where the composition of the kidney stone makes it inappropriate for lithotripsy, or for those patients for whom lithotripsy has already failed, etc.

In this procedure, small incisions are made to access the kidney stones The stones are removed intact if the size is not too large In the case of very large stones, laser or ultrasound is used to fragment the stones which are then evacuated

Transurethral Resection of Prostate ( TURP) in India:

This is a minimally invasive surgical procedure in which the prostate gland, in full or in part, is removed This is the standard procedure for treatment of enlarged prostate gland, also known as Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH). BPH is a condition in which an enlarged prostate gland obstructs the flow of urine through the urethra. The TURP procedure involves the insertion of a cystoscope through the urethra (the urinary tube). Using laser or electrocautery, the surgeon then removes sections of the prostate gradually in order to relieve the pressure on the urethra.

Treatment of Urethral Strictures in India:

The urethra is the tube which carries urine from the bladder for discharge from the body. Sometimes, owing to accidents, infections or even because of medical procedures on the urethra, the tube can narrow down to a point where urination becomes a problem. Two of the treatment options are described below:

Placement of Urethral Stent: using an endoscope, the surgeon passes a stent through the urethra Once inter-operative imaging confirms that the stent has reached the exact location of the stricture, the device is opened out and forms a free tube section through which the urine can flow.

Open Reconstruction of Urethra in India:  This procedure is far more invasive than the stent replacement procedure. However, in complex conditions, this procedure may be called for Several techniques exist for reconstruction of the urethra The affected section of the urethra may be cut out and the normal sections reconnected In other cases a skin flap and or a graft from the inside of the cheek may be used to form a new reconstructed section of urethra

Surgery in India for abnormal penile curvature ( Nesbit's Operation) :

This is a surgical procedure which is designed to correct an abnormal curvature in the penis, which can be caused on account of a variety of factors including Peyronie's disease Nesbitt's Operation is routinely performed by urologists in India. A section of the corpus cavernosum is removed from the side opposite to the plaque and the edges are then sutured together.

Penile prosthesis For Treatment of Erectile Dysfunction:

One of the treatment options for erectile dysfunction is the implanting of penile prosthesis, which are basically of two types: malleable or inflatable. In the malleable prosthesis 2 rods are placed within the penis, causing it to be in a semi-rigid state at all times The second type, the inflatable prosthesis, uses a reservoir and a pump. Upon activation of the pump, fluid from the reservoir enters the penis, causing an erection Likewise, the erection can be deactivated by the user The penile prosthesis procedure is commonly done in India and has a success rate of over 80%

Orchidopexy in India:

This is a surgery to place undescended testicles, which have not descended, into the scrotum. Following birth, in many cases the testes may descend by themselves in the first 2-3 months. If , orchidopexy may be necessary, generally between the age of 6-12 months.
