Clinical activities and procedures:
- Providing urgent care for acute urological conditions (renal colic, acute urinary infections (UTI), urinary bleeding). The department provides patient care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
- Treatment of kidney stone disease. In addition to traditional open surgeries, endoscopic lithotripsy (contact lithotripsy), punctures and minimally invasive surgeries via cosmetic mini approach are performed in the department. Significant attention is paid to litholytic therapy (stone dissolution) and to the prevention of kidney stone disease.
- Treatment of prostate adenoma (Benign Prostatic Hyperpasia—BPH) with the unique bipolar endoscopic technique.
- Reconstructive and plastic urology and andrology. Reconstructive and cosmetic surgery on male genitals.
- Urogynecology. Complex examination and treatment of female urination disorders and incontinence. The most modern reconstructive techniques are used.
- Oncourology. For urinary system cancers, the most modern radical operations are performed, such as radical prostatectomy, radical cystectomy with orthotopic neobladder formation, radical nephrectomy for renal and ureteral cancer, etc.
Minimally invasive surgery
More than 1,500 operations are performed annually in department №3. Half of them are performed by bloodless endoscopic technique.
Even when high-tech endoscopic operations are impossible, more conservative alternative techniques, known as mini-approach surgery, are used. The department of urology was one of the first in the region to implement these types of surgical operations.
It allowed expedited patient recovery with significant pain reduction, literally the day after surgery.
There are two consultation units within the department aimed at current challenges in male and female health—the unit of urological gynecology and incontinence and the men’s health unit.
