Chronic Kidney Disease Clinic

The gradual loss of kidney function is referred to as Chronic Kidney Disease. At an advance stage of the disease, dangerous levels of fluid, electrolytes, and eastes can build up in your body. Our team at Medanta’s Chronic Kidney Disease Clinic, focusses on slowing the progression of kidney damage, usually by controlling the underlying cause. The clinic is well equipped to provide treatments like dialysis and kidney transplant. Regenerative medicine is another breakthrough treatment for CKD which can be done without dialysis and demands no surgical operation.

Kidney Transplant Clinic, Pre-Transplant & Post- Transplant

Medanta’s doctors at Kidney Transplant Clinic use proven innovations to treat people with chronic kidney disease or end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Our experience in using minimally invasive surgery, new medicines to prevent organ rejection and specialised procedures makes Medanta a leader in transplant outcomes in India. Patients for renal transplantation undergo an extensive evaluation to identify factors that may have an adverse effect on the outcome. At Medanta, we have a special committee that meets regularly to discuss the results of the evaluation to identify the best treatment for the patient.

Prostate Clinic

Our prostate and bladder clinic is a service wholly focussed on problems like interstitial cystitis, benign prostatic hyperplasia, stress incontinence, urge incontinence, and prostatitis. We regularly provide effective treatment for patients and specialise in treatments such a robotic surgeries for prostate cancer, which are not widely provided elsewhere.

Stone Clinic

Kidney stones or renal lithiasis are hard deposists made of minerals and salts that form inside your kidneys. Our team at Medanta’s Stone Clinic will guide you through your treatment depending on your situation. The treatment can vary from drinking water for small stones to surgeries to remove very large stones in kidney. For certain kidney stones, depending on size and location, we may recommend a procedure called Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL).

Paediatric Urology Clinic

The Paediatric Urology Clinic provides compassionate and comprehensive care to diagnose and treat all childhood urological problems. The conditions treated at the clinic include bedwetting (enuresis), bladder exstrophy, cloacal exstrophy, undescended testicle, epispadias and vesicoureteral reflux. The clinic at Medanta has been set up to minimise trauma and recovery time for parents as well as patients. Our multidisciplinary team works together to provide parents with a detailed therapeutic plan for all genitourinary issues.

Sexual Function and Infertility Clinic

Sexual dysfunction is more openly discussed that in the past, but still only a fraction of the population with these problems seek medical care. Common sexual problems include erectile dysfunction or impotence, premature ejaculation, Peyronie’s disease or penile curvature and hypogonadism. At Medanta, we can help untangle the causes of sexual dysfunction and infertility problems with a full range of treatments.

Urinary Incontinence Clinic

In urinary incontinence, the severity ranges from occasionally leaking urine when you cough or sneeze to having a sudden urge to urinate. It is either temporary or persistent and occurs more often when people get old. This is an embarrassing condition and we at Medanta provide you the right lifestyle changes and treatment to help deal with it.

Urogenital Cancer Clinic

Urogenital cancers are tumours of kidney and bladder. In men, it is tumour of prostate and testicles. Prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer amongst them. These type of cancers occur in people aged 65+ except the testicular cancer which occurs between the age of 20 and 30. We have a team of doctors and onco-surgeons who are experts in treating urogenital cancers.

Stricture Urethra Clinic

The urethra, which carries urine from bladder to expel it out of body, narrows in this condition. This restricts the urinary flow and occurs commonly in men. Our doctors will review your symptoms and medical history, perform a physical examination, ask you for some tests for definite diagnosis and treat you in the best way possible.

Female Urology Clinic

Urologic conditions affect both men and women but are more common in women because the urinary tract in women is closer to genital area than in men. Common issues that women develop are related to general urinary conditions, bladder, urethral and urinary cancers. Our team of doctors will help you treat these diseases with their expertise and latest technology.

Utilize latest technology

  • The Da Vinci Si 3D Robot

    The da Vinci robotic technology is the most advanced platform for minimally invasive surgery available today.  It enables surgeons to perform delicate and complex surgeries through a few tiny incisions, instead of giving the patient a big cut. The system has an ergonomically designed console where the surgeon sits while operating. The hand movements of the surgeon are converted into corresponding micro-movements of instruments inside the patient’s body.

  • Lithotripsy Machine

    uses an externally-applied, focused, high- intensity acoustic pulse to break a urinary or kidney stone into small pieces that can more easily travel through the urinary tract and pass out with urine in a few days or weeks. It is usually an outpatient procedure and takes about an hour to do. Sedatives or anaesthetics may be used for patient comfort. ESWL is a safe procedure and may be used on children and on individuals with only one working kidney.

  • MRI/TRUS Fusion system for 3D Targeted Prostate Biopsy

    A revolutionary imaging and 3D navigation system that provides a complete prostate biopsy management platform. The system has the ability to take information available in MR and use it in conjunction with your standard ultrasound guided biopsy. Using robotic principles that mimic the physicians arm, the machine increases the accuracy, robustness and reliability of performing a MRI/US Fusion-Targeted Biopsy.

  • Urodynamics

    Urodynamics is a technique of assessing the pressure-flow relationship between the bladder and the urethra for the purpose of defining the functional status of the lower urinary tract.

Avail advanced treatment and procedures

  • Robotic Radical Prostatectomy

    A robotic radical prostatectomy is performed on patients suffering from prostate cancer. This is a minimally invasive surgical procedure. The prostate gland and some of the tissues that surround it are removed during this surgery.

  • Percutaneous Renal Surgery

    In a percutaneous nephrostomy, a special medical instrument is passed through the patient’s skin all the way into the kidney. This procedure is done in order to remove stones from the patient’s kidney. To make sure the catheter is inserted correctly, a special type of X-ray is used.

  • TRUS/MRI FUSION Prostate Biopsy

    After an advanced MRI image of the prostate has been produced, the doctors using special technology fuse the image with a live transrectal ultrasound. This biopsy is used to diagnose prostate cancer in patients.

  • Optical Internal Urethrotomy (OIU)

    Urethrotomy is a surgery wherein the body tissues are removed from the urethra for relief of a stricture. The OIU uses an endoscopic device called urethrotome. Along with the urethrotome, an incision is made with a sharp knife in the urethra. This process removes any unwanted tissues that might be present in the urethra.

  • Bladder Neck Incision

    A bladder neck incision, as the name suggests, is an incision made in the neck of the patient’s bladder in order to improve the urine flow, and relieve the urinary pressure in the bladder. A telescope is used to remove the obstruction from the bladder.

  • Nephroureterectomy

    Nephroureterectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure, performed to remove the renal pelvis, ureter, kidney, and the bladder cuff of the patient. It is most commonly performed on patients with a cancer in their kidney.

  • Urethroplasty

    Urethroplasty refers to the repair of any kind of injury or defect existing within the walls of a person’s urethra. It is considered to be an excellent treatment for the urethral strictures, and the outcomes offered are better than other types of treatments.

  • Dialysis

    Dialysis is used to carry out the basic functions of a person’s kidneys when they stop working properly. Dialysis filters and then purifies the blood using a machine. If a person does not opt for dialysis after his/her kidney’s fails to function, waste products including salt get accumulated in the blood and poison the body.

  • Sling Procedure

    A sling procedure is performed to treat urinary incontinence in women. In this procedure, around the urethra, a sling is placed in order to lift and return the urethra to its normal position. The sling is attached the wall of the abdomen.

  • Pelvic Floor Repair

    Pelvic floor repair is the most common surgery performed for prolapse. Pelvic floor repair is basically a broad term used for simple surgical procedures performed on the floor of the pelvic. The surgery is performed under general, regional, and local anaesthetic.

  • Urethroscopy

    Urethroscopy is a diagnostic test, performed to investigate the interior of the urethra and bladder, with the help of a thin instrument called 'cystoscope'. This procedure involves passing a telescope into the urethra to allow visual inspection. It is also used to identify problems of the urinary tract, such as urethral obstruction originating from the prostate, urethral stricture, stones or tumors.

  • Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery

    Retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) is a procedure for conducting surgery within the kidney using a viewing tube called a fiberoptic endoscope. In this procedure, the endoscope is placed within the kidney (intrarenal). The procedure can also be used to remove a stone.

  • Penile Implant

    Penile implants are placed inside the penis to allow men with erectile dysfunction (ED) to get an erection. There are two main types of penile implants, semirigid and inflatable. It can also be used to treat severe cases of a condition that causes scarring inside the penis, leading to curved, painful erections.


  • Artificial Urinary Sphincter Placement

    An artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) mimics the biological urinary sphincter by providing a competent bladder outlet during urinary storage and an open unobstructed outlet to permit voluntary voiding.
