Minimally invasive urological treatments are the latest procedures for treating urological disorders. As the name suggests, a surgeon operates on the internal organs without any large incision.

What do we need to know about minimally invasive urological treatment? Why is it needed?

Minimally invasive urological treatment is one of the best options to deal with issues of the prostate, kidneys, bladder and other problems of the urinary tract. Few common diseases and problems for which people opt for minimally invasive urological treatments include kidney diseases, bladder cancer, prostate cancer, kidney cancer, bladder prolapse, overactive bladder, hematuria, kidney and ureteral stones, kidney cysts, kidney transplant, kidney blockage, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and urinary incontinence, among a few others.

What are the types of minimally invasive urological treatment?

The minimally invasive treatments dealing with urological problems include:

  • Laparoscopic nephrectomy: This deals with kidney issues and lets a surgeon remove the infected part of a kidney with just a small incision.
  • Prostate brachytherapy (seed implants): This is one of the most constructive treatments for prostate cancer. In this technique, surgeons implant the seed which delivers a high dose of radiation to the specific tumor. Through this technique the chances of damaging nearby tissues are very less. 
  • Percutaneous nephrolithotomy: This technique is for removing kidney stones via a keyhole cut and using high frequency sound waves. 
  • Robotic-assisted prostatectomy: This technique is used to treat prostate cancer. It has an advantage over other techniques as it can preserve potency and bladder control.
  • Minimally invasive surgery for pelvic organ prolapse
  • Vaginal and urethral reconstruction
  • Orchiopexy: This surgery is for men to resolve testicular torsion.
  • Endoscopy: It is a minimally invasive procedure which helps a urologist to examine the internal organs and tissues by utilizing an endoscope, and providing diagnostic evaluation of the bladder, kidneys and ureter.

You can consult any of the urology doctors in Koramangala as well.

When should you visit a doctor?

If you are experiencing urological issues such as slow urination, diagnosed stone or have the pain from stones in the kidneys, bladder or related region, symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), urinary tract obstruction and are unable to empty the bladder completely, you must visit a urologist.
