Steps to take before the treatment
There are different surgical approaches required for different types of inconveniences. Our doctors at Medanta, including our incontinence specialist, urologist and urogynecologist will make sure you are ready and in good health to undergo the surgery. You might also be required to take several diagnostic testing before the surgery
What happens during the treatment?
After giving general or local anaesthesia to the patient, the incisions are made in the bladder neck. A telescope, Cystoscope or Resectoscope (a thin tube camera) is inserted, which makes its way to the bladder, through the urethra. The attached camera helps the doctor to have a clear view of the obstruction in the bladder neck. The blockage is then removed with the help of a surgical cut, and a special instrument (used for extraction).
After Bladder Neck Incision
Immediately after the surgery, the patient might experience a burning sensation in passing urine or traces of blood in the urine. Usually, antibiotics are prescribed by the doctor post-surgery to eliminate these problems. Self-catheterization may also be recommended by the doctor.
