Urology is the branch of medicine dealing with the diseases related to Kidney, Urinary Bladder, Prostate gland, Testis and Penis. It deals with the diseases like Urinary Tract Infections (UTI), Male sexual dysfunction, Renal stones, Renal / Uretric obstructions and male infertility.
It also deals with the tumors of Kidney, Ureter, Bladder, Prostate, Testis and Penis. Congenital anomalies of Genitourinary tract like pelvic ureteric junction obstruction, vesicoureteric reflux, posterior urethral valves etc are “taken care off”. Various voiding dysfunction are also treated under this specialty. Urology also deals with the Kidney transplantation.

At Muljibhai Patel Urological Hospital, Ahmedabad we offer services in the following sub-divisions of Urology :
Most commonly performed Laparoscopic (Key Hole, Minimally Access, Minimally Invasive surgery) procedures at MPUH Hospitals include the following:
- Laparoscopic nephrectomy (removal of kidney – for cancer or other destructive kidney diseases)
- Laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (for prostate cancer)
- Laparoscopic removal of kidney cysts
- Laparoscopic pyeloplasty (reconstruction of the urine-collecting system of the kidney for obstruction between the kidney and ureter)
- Laparoscopic adrenalectomy (removal of adrenal gland)
- Laparoscopic VVF Repair (Vesicovaginal Fistula)
- Laparoscopic diverticulectomy (repair of abnormal pouches in Urinary bladder)
- Laparoscopic Re-implantation of Ureter (for ureteric stricture, obstruction & VUR)
Endourology is the branch of Urology that deals with minimally invasive surgical procedures. As opposed to open surgery, endourology is performed using small endoscopes and instruments. Transurethral surgery has been the cornerstone of endourology. Most of the urinary tract can be reached via the urethra, enabling prostate surgery, surgery of tumors of the urothelium, stone surgery, and simple urethral and ureteral procedures.
(Holmium Laser Enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) is a modern alternative to the standard Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP)
RIRS for Renal Stones
Retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) is a procedure for doing surgery within the kidney using a viewing tube called a fiberoptic endoscope
Mini & Ultramini – (Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy also refered to as Mini-Perc)
Urologic oncology concerns the surgical treatment of malignant genitourinary diseases such as cancer of the prostate, adrenal glands, bladder, kidneys, ureters, testicles, and penis. The medical treatment of advanced genitourinary cancer is managed by either a urologist or an oncologist depending on the cancer.
At MPUH Hospitals all Urological cancer procedures are performed Laparoscopically.
Paediatric urology concerns urologic disorders in children. Such disorders include cryptorchism (undescended testes), congenital abnormalities of the genitourinary tract, enuresis, underdeveloped genitalia (due to delayed growth or delayed puberty, often an endocrinological problem), and vesicoureteral reflux. It also deals with paediatric stone diseases which are now managed endoscopically.
Our experts regularly perform complex procedures Laparoscopic like Uretric Re-implantation Laparoscopic Pyeloplasty … etc.
Andrology focuses on the male reproductive system. It is mainly concerned with male infertility; Sexual Dysfunction: Erectile Dysfunction and Ejaculatory Disorders. Since male sexuality is largely controlled by hormones, andrology overlaps with endocrinology. This condition is evaluated and treated by Urologist, initially through medication and then if required by surgery. Surgery in this field includes fertilization procedures, vasectomy reversals, and the implantation of penile prostheses. Vasectomies may also be included here, although most urologists perform this procedure.
We have a team of expert urologists who can perform TESA, PESA & Needle Testicular Biopsy routinely.
Reconstructive urology is a highly specialized field of urology that restores function to any of various structures of the genitourinary tract. It deals with congenital anomalies of the genitourinary tract like pelvic ureteric junction obstruction, vesicoureteric reflux, urethral stricture disease any reconstruction of genitourinary tract post trauma, Illeal Replacement, continent diversion and Neobladder. We perform Baccal Mucosal urethroplasty fairly routinely at our hospital.
Urogynecology is a branch which deals with female pelvic organ prolapse, urinary incontinence and other voiding dysfunction in the females. It also covers the various fistulas like vesico vaginal, uretero vaginal and urethro vaginal fistulas. Thorough knowledge of the female pelvic floor together with urodynamic skills is necessary to diagnose and treat these disorders. Depending on the cause of the individual problem, a medical or surgical treatment can be the solution.
We have a team of expert Urologists who can perform all fistula repair laparoscopically as well as TVT – O for stress urinary incontinence.
Robotic Surgery – da Vinci Xi Surgical System
The da Vinci Xi Surgical System is the next frontier for minimally invasive surgery. Highly-magnified 3D HD Vision ensures that surgeons can see the surgical site with true depth perception and crystal-clear vision. Wristed instruments bend and rotate far beyond the human hand. Tremor filtration technology allows the surgeon to operate with steady, natural motion. Whether it is the first or last case of the day, the ergonomically-adjustable surgeon console makes performing surgery with the da Vinci Xi Surgical System feel comfortable and natural. The da Vinci Xi Surgical System can be used for Urological surgeries and Onco – surgeries.
