Andrology & Urology
Urology focuses on the treatment of the male reproductive organs as well as diseases of the female and male urinary tract systems. Organs such as the kidneys, adrenal glands, urinary bladders, ureters, testes, seminal vesicles, prostate, penis and epididymis are all treated under the department of Urology.
Most andrology and urology procedures are usually done via a robot-assisted surgery, laparoscopic (or minimally invasive) surgery, or scope-guided. Many issues can also be resolved through medication, or other non-surgical methods. Mediglobe has a large network of Andrology & Urology experts with decades of experience, so you can rest assured we have a solution to all your issues.
Prostatectomy is the term used to describe the partial or complete removal of the prostate gland. The surgery is done to treat benign conditions which cause urinary retention and pelvic cancers or prostate cancer such as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) or Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP).
Urinary Tract Infections
UTIs are common infections that happen when bacteria, often from the skin or rectum, enter the urethra, and infect the urinary tract. They are mostly treated by antibiotics, and can be prevented with a series of simple steps.
Stones are hard deposits made of minerals and salts that form inside your kidneys that can be formed for various reasons. If identified early, kidney stones cause no permanent damage. If the stones are caught early, medication may suffice. However, in some cases, surgery may be required, especially if the stones are too large to break through medicines.
This sub-speciality is focused on dealing with cancers that form in the urinary and reproductive tracts. Cases of prostrate cancer, testicle cancer, bladder cancer, and adrenal gland cancer are all dealt with under urological oncology.
Issues such as erectile dysfunction and penile curvature affect millions of men around the world. Most cases can be cured through medication, but surgical solutions also exist for more serious cases.
