The goal of the urological department
at IGEA Medical Clinic is to optimise the endoscopic and laparoscopic surgical techniques available in order for more patients to benefit from day surgery. The resources saved, for example in terms of beds, can thus be used for major and minor urological surgery
on older patients.
More and more patients requiring urological surgery are in fact geriatric patients, who require longer periods of pre- and post-operative care to achieve the best treatment results and in order to for them to recover safely within a hospital setting. The urology team at IGEA Clinic has also created uro-gynecological and uro-oncology units and diagnostic pathways .
The procedures offered at the
unit, which has 10 beds, include minimally invasive endoscopic surgery (for the treatment of upper urinary tract diseases and surgery for benign prostate growths, superficial bladder tumours and urethral stenosis), surgical oncology and reconstructive surgery, the treatment of urinary lithiasis, the treatment of urinatory dysfunction, surgical correction of urinary incontinence and urethral and bladder obstruction or dysfunction, endoscopic and percutaneous treatment for obstructions in the urinary tract, and surgical and endoscopic correction of male and female incontinence. In addition there are services such as diagnostics and treatment for impotence and diagnosis and treatment of genital conditions.
