Patient-Focused Compassionate Care

Urological Surgeries Unit

The Urological Surgeries Unit at Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital is committed to providing the highest quality urological care to both adult and paediatric patients suffering from a wide range of urological conditions. Our highly-qualified urologists, oncologists, andrologists, gynaecologists, and reconstructive surgeons are recognised for their special expertise in performing minimally invasive urological surgeries using state-of-the-art technologies and techniques with both robotics and laparoscopy procedures to reduce blood loss, the length of the stay in hospital and risk of infection. 

The unit focuses on providing the most comprehensive, compassionate and patient-centric care to people suffering from problems associated with urinary tract of males and females, and reproductive system of males. The most common types of the procedure we perform under urological surgeries are; 

Uro-Laparoscopy/ Robotics

It is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that is performed using a flexible, thin tube known as Laparoscope with a full HD camera on its tip. A surgeon makes a few small incisions in the affected area in a patient’s body to perform the surgery. The laparoscope is inserted through the incision which projects the clear view of the affected part on the monitor, helping doctors to perform surgeries more precisely using small instruments or robotic arms. 

Robotics is also used for many urological cases related to adrenal, bladder, kidney, testis, and prostate. We follow a multidisciplinary approach to perform the most comprehensive services under the following sub-disciplines:

  • Uro-Oncology Surgeries
  • Gynaec-Urology Surgeries
  • Andrology Surgeries
  • Reconstructive Urology Surgeries
  • Endourology

All the surgeries are performed under the effect of anaesthesia in a fully equipped, state-of-the-art operating room. The depth of knowledge of specialists and cutting-edge diagnostic facilities allow our team of experts to perform all kinds of urological surgeries with the help of laparoscopy to ensure great precision for improved patient outcomes.

URO-ONCOLOGY SURGERIES

Uro-oncology is a sub-discipline of the Urology Surgeries Unit which focuses on treating and managing malignant cancers of the urinary tract of males and females, and male reproductive system. The conditions we treat under uro-oncology include:

  • Adrenal Cancer
  • Bladder Cancer
  • Genitourinary Sarcoma
  • Kidney Cancer
  • Penile Cancer
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Testicular Cancer
  • Urethral Cancer

We follow a multidisciplinary approach to provide the most comprehensive, patient-centric care to patients suffering from cancer of the urinary tract.  The surgeries we perform under this sub-discipline are:

  • Radical Cystectomy (to remove the bladder with urinary diversion by ileal conduit or neobladder reconstruction)
  • Radical Nephro-Ureterectomy (to remove the renal pelvis, kidney and if required the entire ureter, along with the bladder cuff) 
  • Radical Orchiectomy (to treat patients with testicular cancer) 
  • Radical Prostatectomy (to remove the prostate gland)
  • Radical, and Partial Nephrectomy (to remove the entire kidney, or the cancerous tumour)
  • Retroperitoneal Lymph Node Dissection (it is a therapeutic treatment involves the removal of the lymph nodes in the back of the abdomen (retroperitoneum))
  • Total or Partial Penectomy with Inguinal Lymph Node Dissection (to remove the cancerous part of the penis)

Our team of expert urologists, oncologists, nephrologists and other supporting staff at the unit perform the above-mentioned surgeries under the effect of anaesthesia, using state-of-the-art facilities in a fully equipped operating theatre. After the surgery, some patients might have to undergo chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

GYNAEC-UROLOGY SURGERIES

Gynaec-urology is a branch of Urology Surgeries Unit that deals with diagnosing and treating the most common urological conditions in females such as:

  • Chronic urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Interstitial cystitis
  • Mesh complications
  • Overactive bladder
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Pelvic pain

  • Minimally Invasive Sling procedures to provide sling support under the tube that carries urine.
  • Periurethral Bulking Agents to narrow down the urethra by injecting a bulking agent in order to stop leakage.
  • Vaginal Prolapse Repair is performed to repair and support the weakened pelvic floor structures using grafting of a patient’s own tissue or synthetic material.
  • Hysterectomy is conducted on patients with severe uterine prolapse. It involves the removal of uterus.
  • Robotic-Assisted Sacrocolpopexy is done to repair pelvic organ prolapse. 
  • Sacral Nerve Stimulation (Interstim) Therapy is conducted to treat bladder and bowel problems in female targeting communication problem between the brain and nerves that control bowel function.
  • Bladder and Urethral Reconstructive Procedures are performed to remove the bladder and create a new way to pass urine. 
  • Vesicovaginal Fistula Repair is performed to close the vesicovaginal fistula permanently without affecting the ureter.

We perform all the surgeries under the effect of anaesthesia in our fully equipped operating theatres. A patient might take two to four weeks to recover after the surgery and has to take some precautions as advised by the doctor in order to avoid any future complication and improve the quality of life.
