Kidney and Urology Institute

Urology and Andrology

About the Speciality

The Urology and Andrology division focusses on providing world-class medical interventions to the patients who cannot be treated just by medication or lifestyle corrections. The Urologists use surgical or invasive interventions to alleviate the problems pertaining to anatomical or structural disorders of the kidneys and urinary tract.

Our world-class technology aids our doctors in performing the treatment with precision and accuracy. Further, the two teams – Urologists and Nephrologists come together, delivering a full range of diagnostic and disease management services, which is affordable to all, and make sure that the patient is comfortable throughout the process of treatment, and even after it.

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 cutting-edge technology

  • Da Vinci Si Robotic Surgical System

    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

    The technology 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. Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (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.

  • Robotic Partial Nephrectomy

    Partial nephrectomy is the surgery done for kidney tumors where only the tumour and a surrounding rim is removed. It is considered as a treatment option for kidney cancer that has not spread beyond the kidney. It is the preferred method of treatment for patients with smaller kidney tumors less than 4 cm in size.

  • 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.

  • 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 to 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.
