  • Uro-gynaecology: Performing Female incontinence surgeries, etc.

  • Andrology and Infertility: Consultancy for male sexual inadequacy and infertility.

  • Reconstructive Urology: We perform surgeries like Pyeloplasty, Urethroplasty, Hypospadias repair, Neobladder, Ureteric Reconstruction.

  • Paediatric Urology: Procedures performed include pyeloplasty, hypospadias repair, circumcisions, posterior urethral valve fulguration and urinary stone management.

  • Inpatient Services

    The department provides inpatient services through general wards, emergency wards and private wards. Emergencies are attended to round the clock and admissions for these are made through the casualty.



Facilities

State-of-the-art technology and equipment

  • The Department is fully equipped with the latest technology for Endourological surgery. The department performs all modern urologic surgeries including (but not limited to) Lower tract Endourology (Cystoscopy, TURP, TURBT, OIU), Upper tract Endourology (PCNL, URS, RIRS), ESWL, Urodynamics, Ultrasound, Laser surgery, Microsurgery, Laparoscopic surgery, Renal transplantation, open surgeries etc.




  • Laser in Urology
  • Advances in lasers and fibreoptics have made them ideally suited for use in the Urological procedures, perhaps more so than any other medical subspecialty.
    Our department is equipped with one of the finest laser equipment.


  • Laparoscopic Surgeries
  • Also popularly known as minimal invasive surgery (MIS), or keyhole surgery, these surgeries carry minimum morbidity and early return to work. Minimally invasive surgery has been applied to a multitude of benign (non-cancerous) and malignant (oncologic or cancerous) urologic problems. It is done for numerous conditions affecting urologic organs including kidney, adrenal gland, ureter, bladder, prostate, lymph nodes. Latest Endovision Camera Monitor and VCR for teaching and recording is available at our hospital to provide uninterrupted services.



  • Mobile ā€˜Cā€™ arm
  • It is the state of art technique available to screen stones and image the renal collecting system.


  • Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL)
  • Shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) is an efficient non-surgical procedure for treating stones in the kidney or the ureter. SWL is one of the most frequently used treatments for kidney stones. High-pressure waves are targeted from outside the body at the stone which causes it to break into fragments. It is also known as Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL), where extracorporeal means from outside the body. A Dornier compact sigma lithotripter is used for extra corporeal lithotripsy at our hospital.


  • Postgraduate

    M.Ch.(Master of Chirurgiae) in Urology is a super specialization course for qualified surgeons who wish to enhance their knowledge and skills in the surgical and non-surgical treatment of diseases of the genitourinary tract, including the kidney, urinary bladder, adrenal glands and urinary problems.

    This course also equips them to deal with disorders concerning male sexual and reproductive health. The postgraduate students gain competence in surgical procedures for the treatment of cancers, incontinence, infertility and in renal transplantation.

  • Allied Health Sciences:
  • Teaching and training of the allied health sciences endoscopy and urotechnology students.

  • Prospective Study to assess the safety and efficacy of tubeless percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PCNL).
  • To study The Effects of Tamsulosin vs Flavoxate vs Placebo For The Treatment Of Ureteral Stent Related Discomforts.
  • A study on the bacterial colonization of the ureteral Double-J stents in patients with lower urinary tract symptoms after DJ stenting.
Periodic Prostate assessment camps are being conducted for prostate cancer awareness among the society and imparting health education. The department also supports research activities particularly those of the bladder and kidney. In addition to the above services, urology consultation is also provided at the Urban Health Centre at Karapakkam.
