We provide professional support in Urology.
Urology is the department that deals with diseases such as kidney diseases, urinary tract diseases, and reproductive problems. The word urology is a French word. The urology department, whose Turkish is “bevliye”, is also called bevliye by the people.
Which Diseases Does Urology Department Look For?
There is a false perception in the society that the urology department only looks at men. Contrary to this perception, urology department deals with excretory system diseases with women as well. For women, the gynecology department deals with diseases of the reproductive organs.
In the urology department, urologists deal with the detection and treatment of the health status and diseases of all organs of the excretory system. It also deals with the health conditions and diseases of the reproductive organs in men.
Operations We Performed in Urology Department
As Private Ankara Magnet Hospital, we perform the following surgeries with high quality with our urology specialist team.
Kidney Stone Surgery
Stones formed in the kidney from the organs of the urinary system are removed by open or percutaneous nephrolithotomy methods.
Ureteral Stone Surgeries
Open or endoscopic intervention is performed for stones formed in the ureters, also known as the urethra.
Bladder Stone Surgeries
The bladder is a sac that stores urine produced in the kidneys. Stones formed in the bladder are intervened openly or endoscopically.
Kidney Cyst Surgery
Fluid-filled bubbles that develop in the kidneys called cysts are surgically intervened by our specialist physicians.
Nephrectomy means removal of the kidney in medical language. These surgeries that require kidney removal are performed open or closed.
Hydrocele is a swelling of the scrotum caused by the accumulation of excess fluid in the membranes surrounding the testicles. With hydrocelectomy surgery, this excess fluid is drained with the help of an incision.
Epididymal Cyst Excision
Epididymic cyst is the name given to fluid-filled cysts located in the semen canal just above the testicle in men. Cysts over a certain size should be removed with an operation.
Orchiectomy is the name given to surgery in which one or both testicles are removed. This surgery can be applied in cases such as testicular cancer.
The purpose of diagnostic cystoscopy is to determine possible diseases by examining the bladder and urethra in men. In cystoscopy, these organs are examined visually by entering through the urinary canal.
Dilatation in Urethral Stenosis
The urethra, the urinary tract, is the organ of the excretory system that allows urine to be discharged from the bladder out of the body. Since narrowing of the urethra can negatively affect the functioning of the excretory system, the urinary tract can be enlarged with an intervention.
Genital Wart Cauterization
Warts are infections that settle in the upper layer of the skin. Our urology unit intervenes with these warts in the genital area.
The Turkish equivalent of the intervention, which stands for “Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsie”, can be defined as “Shock Wave Lithotripsy”. In this intervention, kidney and ureter stones are broken with sound waves.
