Metropolitan General’s 1st Urology Clinic provides diagnosis and treatment for all urinary tract and reproductive system diseases.
- It conducts all transurethral and laparoscopic procedures in the urinary tract.
- Painlessly manages stones in the kidneys, ureters, bladder, at the special Lithotripsy Unit of Metropolitan General.
- Treats benign prostate hyperplasia with all methods available: typical open transvesical prostatectomy, transurethral prostatectomy with electrodiathermy, transurethral prostatectomy with the TURIS technique, as well as laser prostatectomy.
Laser prostatectomy, or Greenlight Laser method, has the following comparable results: it simplifies the classic surgery method, delivers rapid symptom relief, fast recovery, immediate and long-term results, and can be applied on patients receiving anti-coagulants or severe cardiac patients.
The 1st Urology Clinic applies robotic surgery for the management of urological conditions. In theory, all laparoscopically treated urological conditions can be robotically managed. However, the conditions primarily managed with robotic surgery, delivering maximum results for the patient are: prostate cancer, bladder cancer, benign prostate and bladder diseases (large prostatic adenoma, vesical diverticulum, cystovesical fistula), benign diseases of the renal pelvis and ureter (pyeloplasty, uretero-cysto-neostomy), benign and malignant kidney diseases (renal cancer, large renal cysts). Other procedures that can also be robotically performed are: robotic assisted varicocele repair and robotic-assisted inguinal hernia repair.
Moreover, the 1st Urology Clinic runs an Incontinence Unit and an Andrology Office.
