Urology is a surgical specialty which deals with diseases of the urinary/reproductive tracts in men and with urinary disease in women. Although we are surgeons, only 15-20% of patients referred to us by GPs actually require surgery. So, if you are referred to the department, this does not mean you will automatically be advised to have an operation.

The common urology surgeries performed in children are
Vesicoureteral reflux surgery: Vesicoureteral reflux is a condition where the urine accumulates in the ureter and does not flow into the bladder causing damage to the kidneys. Vesicoureteral reflux surgery helps in the free flow of urine from the ureter into the bladder.
Orchiopexy surgery: Cryptorchidism is a condition in which the testes do not descend into the scrotum after birth. Orchiopexy surgery is used for correcting the undescended testis.
Nephrostomy: Hydronephrosis is a condition where the urine does not flow out of the kidneys leading to fluid retention in the kidneys. Nephrostomy catheter is the procedure performed to helps the urine flow from the kidneys to the bladder.
Myelomeningocele: The outgrowth of the spinal cord known as spina bifida, is a condition where the nerves and muscles of the urinary bladder are contracted towards the spine. This disables the normal functioning of the urinary bladder thereby decreasing the urine output. Myelomeningocele surgery is a prenatal procedure that is performed on the fetus when in the mother’s womb.
Circumcision surgery: It is a surgical procedure for removal of the foreskin of the penis. It is practiced either due to traditional practices or due to infections of the urinary tract.
UROLOGICAL SURGERIES IN ADULTS
The common urology surgeries performed in adults include:
Kidney and ureteral stones surgery: The surgery is performed to remove stones from the kidneys and the urinary tract. Kidney or ureteral stones are the accumulation of the salts that turn into crystals that obstruct the flow of urine.
Kidney transplantation surgery: The surgery is performed to replace the diseased kidney with a donor’s kidney in individuals suffering from chronic kidney disease or kidney failure or cancer of the kidneys.
Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) surgery: The surgery is intended to treat the patients suffering from the enlarged prostate gland. The condition is also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia that affects a large number of elderly men.
Cancer surgery: The surgery is performed to remove a tumor or the infected organ affected with cancer. Kidney, prostate and testicular cancers may affect the urological health in men, whereas ovarian, endometrial, uterine, vaginal and kidney cancers affect the urological health in women.
