Overview

WHAT IS UROLOGY?

The branch of medicine that is concerned with the conditions affecting the kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra, otherwise clubbed under the urinary tract in both males and females is known as Urology. Other organs such as penis, testes, scrotum, prostate, etc., in relevance to males only and disorders related to them also fall under the purview of urology and is closely linked to andrology (deals only with male urinary and reproductive health).

There is a close connection between the reproductive organs and the urinary tract, thus, also establishing a link between conditions that affect one or the other. Therefore, a substantial domain of the disorders that are treated and managed under urology falls under genitourinary disorders. A combination of non-surgical or medical treatments with surgical methods is typically used in treating urological conditions.

Urology – Subspecialties

Urology can be further broken down in multiple sub-specialities including:

Common treatment methods for these disorders can be male-specific medical and surgical procedures include vasectomy, vasovasostomy, orchidopexy and circumcision and are treated by some of the top urologists in Kolkata.

  • Endourology: It is a speciality under urology that is concerned with the urinary tract’s close manipulation. Recently, this sub-discipline has expanded its purview to include all minimally invasive urologic surgical procedures. In comparison to general open surgery, endourology is a procedure that uses tiny cameras and instruments that are inserted via the urinary tract. Lately, the cornerstone of endourology has been Transurethral surgery. However, additions of laparoscopy and robotics have led to further sub-division of this speciality branch of urology.
  • Laparoscopy: This branch of urology is still evolving but has been able to replace some open surgical procedures in recent times. The most advanced form of laparoscopic surgery is performed with the help of robotics typically for prostate, kidney, and ureter.
  • Urologic oncology: Dealing primarily with malignant genitourinary conditions, for example, cancer of the prostate, adrenal glands, bladder, kidneys, ureters, testicles, and penis, skin and subcutaneous tissue and muscle and fascia of those areas, urologic oncology is a form of surgical therapy that is managed by a specialist urologist or oncologist via using minimally invasive techniques such as laparoscopy or endourology, robotic-assisted surgery.
  • Neurourology: This branch of urology is concerned with nervous system control of the genitourinary system and any related disorders leading to abnormal urination. Stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and spinal cord injury are neurological conditions that may have a disruptive effect on the lower urinary tract leading to conditions such as urinary incontinence, detrusor overactivity, urinary retention, and detrusor sphincter dyssynergia. Less marked neurological abnormalities can cause urological disorders as well. A key diagnostic role in neurourology is played by urodynamic studies.
  • Paediatric urology: All urologic disorders that concern children and dealt with the paediatric urology sub-speciality. Common conditions under paediatric urology are cryptorchidism, or undescended testes, congenital abnormalities of the genitourinary tract, enuresis, underdeveloped genitalia which are caused owing to belated development or overdue puberty, time and again an endocrinological problem, and vesicoureteral reflux. With the best urologist doctors in Kolkata here at Fortis Hospital, the treatment for children is in the best of hands.
  • Andrology: Concentrating on the male reproductive system, andrology covers anomalies in the connective tissues pertaining to the genitalia, as well as changes in the volume of cells, such as in genital hypertrophy or macrogenitosomia. As male sexuality is fundamentally regulated by hormones, the sub-division of andrology intersects with endocrinology at particular junctures. There are several conditions, but some of the more common ones are listed below: that are required the intervention of andrology including:
    • Erectile dysfunction

Procedures involving the prostate comprise of both parts of full hysterectomies, trauma diseases caused as a result of auto accidents, gunshot wounds, industrial accidents, straddle injuries, etc., in addition to obstructions, blockages such as urethral strictures.

Examples of reconstructive surgery also include urinary bladder, ureters (the tubes that lead from the kidneys to the urinary bladder) and genitalia.

In order to accurately diagnose female urological conditions, our female urologists in Kolkata get a thorough knowledge of the female pelvic floor together with an intimate understanding of the physiology and pathology.
