A urologist is a doctor who deals exclusively with the diagnosis and treatment of problems affecting the male reproductive system and also the urinary systems of both men and women. The kidneys, ureter, urinary bladder, adrenal glands, urethra, and male reproductive organs such as the testes, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate, and penis are all treated by these specialists.
Urologic surgery addresses problems of the female and male urinary systems, as well as male reproductive system anomalies.
You can rely on Sanjivani Vitalife’s highly skilled urologists to provide high-quality care as they diagnose and treat a wide range of urologic issues, including:
A cystoscopy is a urology technique that allows a urologist to inspect the bladder and urethral linings. A cystoscope is directed to the bladder after being placed into the urethra. The cystoscope is a lengthy, tubular structure with a light and camera at the tip. This method is widely used to identify and treat bladder problems. It can also be used to determine whether or not the prostate is enlarged.
This is a typical urological treatment performed on many men. Vasectomy is a surgical treatment intended to permanently control male fertility. During surgery, the doctor cuts and seals the vas deferens, which transports sperm from the testicles, to break off the flow of sperm. This is an outpatient treatment that takes between 10 to 30 minutes.
Urologists may use a variety of techniques to diagnose and treat prostate problems. Prostate procedures can be used to alleviate prostate symptoms as well as to identify and treat prostate issues such as benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) or prostate cancer.
A vasectomy reversal can be performed if a man who has undergone a vasectomy decides he wants children again. But, reversing a vasectomy is not a guarantee that the man will be able to have a baby. Certain conditions must be met in order for the reversal to be effective. The vas deferens are repaired using microsurgical methods.
The process of ureteroscopy is performed to identify and treat kidney stones. A ureteroscope (a long, thin tube with a light and camera) is directed into the urethra and bladder and up the ureter to the location of the kidney stone. Small stones can be extracted intact, but bigger stones must be split apart. The process for breaking up the stones is known as lithotripsy.
