Urology Clinic

Urology is a broad medical and surgical specialty focusing on the genitourinary system, which includes: the kidneys, ureters, bladder, urethra, and the male reproductive system comprising the prostate, seminal vesicles, penis, testicles, and scrotum. The kidneys function to eliminate metabolic waste products in the urine and maintain body fluid and electrolyte balance. Certain types of urinary system diseases also have implications for the sexual function of males. Patients seeking treatment for urinary system diseases are of two groups:

The Urology Clinic at MedPark Hospital offers diagnostic and treatment services by specialized urologists with expertise in the urinary system. They have extensive experience treating common and complex urinary diseases and are well-equipped to perform surgeries using advanced medical tools. One notable advantage is the utilization of minimally invasive laparoscopic surgeries, which not only minimizes post-operative pain but also accelerates recovery compared to traditional open surgeries.

The ISO-certified, automated clinical laboratory provides swift test result reporting, reducing waiting times and allowing physicians to make diagnoses promptly. The urologists at MedPark Hospital are proficient in treating urinary system diseases and those affecting sexual function in males, employing advanced, intricate treatment techniques coupled with years of extensive medical experience. Our surgeons, who also are teaching faculties, ensure that treatment outcomes align with the planned course of action.

This collaborative and holistic approach contributes to the patient's recovery and well-being.

Tests and procedures 

  • Surgical treatment for diverse conditions of the urinary system, including urologic surgery of the kidneys and urinary tract, kidney transplant, laparoscopic adrenalectomy, photoselective vaporization of the prostate (PVP), varicocelectomy, etc. 
  • Uroflowmetry for patients with urinary disorders, or likelihood of BPH, or mixed urinary incontinence: The test involves having patients urinate into a device installed over a toilet. The device will measure and analyze urine flow rate patterns for further diagnosis and treatment planning.
  • Ultrasonic bladder scans for measuring residual urine in patients with BPH, frequent urination, and voiding difficulty due to urinary tract infection. The process is painless because it is performed through abdominal skin, reducing side effects from urethral catheterization. The bladder scan is convenient and highly safe, taking only a few minutes to get the result for further analysis and treatment.
  • Flexible cystoscopy, a gentler approach to bladder examination, utilizes a thin, flexible instrument that easily navigates the curve of the urethra, reducing discomfort. The adjustable camera angle at the tip of the scope allows surgeons to thoroughly inspect the interior of the bladder and urethra, providing crucial information for choosing the best treatment option for your needs.
  • Vasectomy and vasectomy reversal.

Specialties

  • Prostate Cancer Brachytherapy: The process involves placing iridium 192 (Ir-192) radioactive sources into the prostate as close to the cancerous site as possible while sparing the surrounding healthy tissue as much as possible from the effect of radiation. The benefits of this procedure include a short treatment period, short recovery time, no residual radiation, and no impact on sexual potency.
  • Photo-Selective Vaporization of the Prostate (PVP) Greenlight laser surgery: This surgical technique involves inserting a thin endoscope into the bladder and utilizing a high-power green light laser to vaporize tissue that causes urethral obstruction. It is painless, with minimal blood loss and complications. Only requiring 1-2 days of hospital stay, this technique is suitable for seniors or those who cannot stop taking antiplatelet drugs. In addition, sexual potency is not affected after treatment.
  • MRI fusion ultrasound-guided prostate biopsy: This technique fuses 3D magnetic resonance images with real-time ultrasound images to enhance the precision of locating the site of a cancerous tumor for biopsy. Increasing the accuracy of biopsy by 80-90%, this technique enables surgeons to detect cancer sooner for timely treatment, ensuring a good life quality.
  • Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL): This procedure uses focused, high-energy ultrasound waves delivered through the skin to break down stones into small fragments and excreted through urine without open surgery. It is a safe procedure, with good outcomes and requiring no hospitalization.
