URINARY TRACT STONES
From diagnosis to treatment to knowing the cause and prevention of urinary stones, our hospital is equipped with all that is required for optimum and the least invasive techniques to achieve highest cure rates and lowest recurrences.
Extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL)
Our state of the art ESWL machine has the highest success rate for stone fragmentation. For kidney, Ureteric or bladder stones, radiolucent or radio opaque (U/S guided), the procedure can be done on a day case basis. It can be done without anesthesia without pain and without surgical or endoscopic intervention.
For endoscopic treatment of stones when needed, we are equipped with a multitude of different endoscopes, rigid and flexible, for dealing with stones of all sizes in all locations of the urinary tract. Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL)for endoscopic extraction or fragmentation of kidney stones. Ureteroscopy for fragmentation and extraction of ureteric stones, and cystolitholapxy for bladder stones. For intra corporeal endoscopic fragmentation we have different machines that can be used; Holmium Laser, pneumatic lithocalst and Ultrasonic lithoclast. This enables us to deal with all kinds of stones no matter where the stones are or how large and hard they may be.
Full screening diagnostic for prostatic diseases like prostatitis, prostatic enlargement(BPH) and prostate cancer. Transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) with our state of the art ultrasound machine, we can perform prostate biopsies with local anesthesia with no pain on an out patient basis. Our Urology consultants are well trained in prostate surgery, whether endoscopic like trans uretheral resection of the prostate (TURP) for BPH, or radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer along with other treatment options like radiotherapy under the supervision of our Radiation Oncologists.
