The Renal Care Centre, combining state-of-the-art equipment, medical technology and phenomenal expertise all under one roof, is now available to the region. The centre provides services in the following areas:
Minimally Invasive Urology
Many traditional urologic surgical procedures require large incisions with lengthy hospitalisation and recovery. Minimally invasive surgery in this field has recently been developed with engineering and computer technology advancement. This kind of surgery has been applied to a multitude of benign (non-cancerous) and malignant (oncologic or cancerous) urological problems. Furthermore, it has been applied successfully to conditions affecting a variety of urologic organs (including kidney, adrenal gland, ureter, bladder, prostate, lymph nodes).
Using a small telescope with a built-in magnification mechanism and a selection of long, thin surgical instruments that are placed through approximately 3 – 5 incisions (each of which is usually no bigger than a large coin), the surgeon is able to perform minimally invasive surgery for a variety of urologic diseases and problems. Patients who have undergone these procedures have benefited not only from the same diagnostic and therapeutic advantages of traditional open surgery but also greatly reduced postoperative pain, shorter hospitalisation, faster recovery and better cosmetic results.
The endoscopic surgeries are performed through natural orifices. We offer endoscopic procedures for patients with urinary stones, kidney stones, ureteric stones, bladder cancers, urethral and ureteral strictures and problems pertaining to the prostate.
Holmium Laser in Urology
Thanks to the Holmium Laser, Urological disorders are treated without pain, without significant bleeding, without scars. Moreover, recovery is much faster.
The laser is very useful in the field of urology. It is mainly used to treat Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in men, especially in complicated cases, Urinary cancers (Urinary cancers, can be destroyed/removed using Holmium laser without the need of big open surgeries and strictures. But it is also used to treat Kidney and other urinary stones. Holmium is not a panacea. This means that the Holmium laser cannot be used in all situations. It is therefore on a case-by-case basis that the urologist decides whether a patient needs to be laser treated or not.
