Urology Department

 

The Department of Urology at Noora Hospital looks after problems of the bladder and kidneys. This includes using medicines and surgery.

The urologists look after surgical problems of the urinary tract in both men and women. Urology also looks after problems of the genital tract in the male. This includes the bladder, kidneys, ureters, urethra for men and women. Also the male sex organs. The patients may have pain in the side from the kidney area or in the lower abdomen (tummy) from the bladder; problems passing urine/water (urinating/micturating/peeing); burning when passing urine; infections of the urine (waterworks); stones in the bladder or kidney; congenital problems of the urinary tract; mens problems; cancers of the urinary tract etc.

Renal physicians (Nephrologists) take care of medical conditions of the kidney, including renal failure (when the kidney stops working) and dialysis (artificial kidney). The two teams (ie Urology & Nephrology) often work together.

Urology specialises in:-

      . Urology Andrology – problems only men have – male sexual problems or infertility (unable to have a baby)

      . EndoUrology and Lithotripsy – EndoUrology is procedures (to diagnose and treat) done through instruments; eg               cystoscope, laparoscope;

      . Lithotripsy - breaking up stones with the shock wave

      . Urodynamics – tests how the bladder works, see below for more information

      . Female Urology - problems of the urinary tract in ladies

      . Paediatric & Reconstructive Urology – children having problems with the bladder & kidneys and the urinary or genital
        tract . These may be from birth or from injury or disease.

      . Uro-Oncology – cancer of the kidneys, bladder, prostate, testis, penis & adrenals

The following treatments are being done regularly at Noora Hospital:-

      . Endourology – Used mostly to treat kidney stones and some tumors, this procedure involves the use of small fiber-
        optic scopes to view the lining of the urinary tract.

      . Laparoscopy – Surgeons use a fiber-optic instrument that is inserted through a small incision in the abdomen to
        perform minimally invasive procedures in the kidney, ureters, bladder and prostate. 

      . Oncology – Diagnosis and treatment of cancer of the urinary tract of men and women such as prostate, kidney and
        testicular cancers.

      . Male urology – Noora Hospital is a leader, throughout the valley, in the use of leading-edge, minimally invasive                 procedures to treat BPH (also referred to as benign prostatic hypertrophy). BPH is a condition in which the prostate  
        gland becomes very enlarged and may cause problems associated with urination.

      . Female urology – Diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the lower urinary tract in females, such as urinary leakage
        and overactive bladder.

      . Male factor infertility – Treatment to reverse low sperm count.

      . Pediatric urology – Treatment of urological problems in children.
