Urosurgery and Endourology


Urosurgery and Endourology Treatment

Urology is a surgical specialty which deals with diseases of the male and female urinary tract and the male reproductive organs. The complexity of knowledge and rapid development of technologies used to assess and treat the conditions affecting the genito-urinary tract have prompted the development of subspecialties within urology.

Endourology involves the use of small fibre optic scopes which can be passed through the urethra to visualize internally the lining of the urinary tract from kidney to bladder. Thin, flexible instruments including lasers, graspers, miniature stone retrieval baskets, special scalpels, and cautery, can be advanced through working channels in the scopes in order to perform surgery without creating any incisions at all. The majority of endoscopic procedures can be done on an outpatient basis.

At Aastha Health Care, surgeons use state-of-the-art surgery procedures that use optic devices to view body cavities, providing a variety of diagnostic and corrective procedures that are less invasive than conventional procedures. The procedures, known as Endosurgery, also offer the benefit of reduced trauma to the patient.
