Urology and Andrology

Urology & Andrology of Thu Cuc International Hospital is a prestigious address in the examination and treatment of diseases of the urinary system and male genital organs.

1. Scope of service

Urology and Andrology provides services including the examination, diagnosis and treatment of diseases:

1.1. Treatment of urinary tract stones (including kidney stones, ureteral stones, urethral stones and bladder stones)

Small stones: Medical treatment (using drugs) to push the stones out through the urinary tract.

Big stones: Use of lithotripsies which are:

– ESWL (Extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy): The patient is lying on the machine. Shock waves from the machine impact the stone and break the stone into small pieces. The stone will be passed out of the body in the urine without surgery or pain, the patient can go home immediately.

– Retrograde ureteroscopy with laser: the doctor will put the endoscope up to the urethra to access the stone, and then use the laser to break up the stone and suck it out. After the procedure, the patient will feel little pain without scar and can be discharged after 24 hours.

– Mini percutaneous nephrolithotomy: Applied to kidney stones which are large, long-existed and solid. The doctor will make a small 5mm incision on the back to insert the endoscope to break up the stone, and then pump and suck it out. This method is less painful, safe and allows a faster recovery than open surgery.

– Flexible ureteroscopy lithotripsy: Similar to retrograde ureteroscopy, this method helps remove the stone smoothly, without incision, allowing a safe, fast recovery.

– Complicated cases that can not be treated by the above-mentioned methods, surgical interventions such as retroperitoneal laparoscopic ureterolithotomy or open surgery to remove stones will be requested.

1.2. Treatment of ureteral stricture

In simple cases, the methods that will be used are ureteroscopy, dilation and ureteral stent placement.

Complicated cases will employ:

– Uureterotracheal upstream endoscopy with a laser vaporization (tra lại)

– Surgery to reshape the renal pelvis – ureter

1.3. Treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)

Simple cases: small-sized BPH that has not caused complications can be treated with prescribed drugs.

Complicated cases: in case of ineffective medical treatment or BPH that has caused serious complications, doctors may request surgical treatment (laparoscopic surgery).
