Urology

Urology is a branch of science that deals with the medical and surgical treatment of kidneys, urinary tracts called ureters, bladder, prostate, penis, sperm sacs, eggs, and sperm channels in men, and all kinds of diseases of organs other than sexual activity in women.

Urologists deal with congenital abnormalities, inflammations, cancers, and dysfunctions of these organs. You can rely on RECMED expertise for all your treatment needs in urology.

TURP

In males, TURP grows (doubles) during early puberty. TURP grows differently in all men after the age of 25.

The causes of prostate enlargement are still unknown today. Male hormones (testosterone) and estrogen are thought to have a serious role in this growth.

TURP gland begins to grow in men in their 30s and lasts until the end of life. While prostate enlargement is seen in half of the men over the age of 50, this rate increases to 65% after the age of 60. With the age of 80, the growth rate exceeds 90%. Most of these patients are treated with medication or surgery.

Shock Wave Lithotripsy

Shock wave lithotripsy means breaking the kidney stone with ultrasound waves sent from outside the body. The patient does not need to be put to sleep during this procedure.

In extracorporeal shock wave therapy, the shock waves sent to the body break the stone in the kidney into small pieces. These parts are excreted out of the body with urine. Shock wave lithotripsy treatment is applied by specialist urology doctors.

Kidney Biopsy

A kidney biopsy is the removal of a very small amount of kidney tissue. The sample taken is examined under a microscope in the pathology laboratory.

A kidney biopsy is performed in the presence of blood and/or protein in the urine, in the presence of impaired renal function that cannot be explained by other diagnostic methods, and sometimes to evaluate the transplanted kidney after kidney transplantation. These diseases are usually caused by inflammation of the kidney tissue, which we call nephritis.

Kidney biopsy is used in the diagnosis of some systemic vasculitis or systemic inflammatory rheumatic diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus.

Radical Prostatectomy

Radical prostatectomy is a procedure in which the entire prostate gland is removed. In some patients, it is necessary to remove the regional lymph nodes in addition to the removal of the prostate.

It should be preferred in stages where prostate cancer has not metastasized, and in patients who are suitable in terms of age and health status. It is a viable treatment method especially in tumors that are thought to be limited to the prostate if the patient’s life expectancy is over 10 years.

In the treatment of prostate cancer that is outside the prostate but has not spread to distant sites, some patients may need to add radiotherapy in addition to surgery.

Urologic Reconstructive Surgery

Urologic Reconstructive Surgery describes the use of surgical techniques to restore these areas of the body that have lost their shape and function.

In the broadest sense, urologic reconstructive surgery can be defined as one of the two main branches of plastic surgery together with aesthetic surgery. Plastic surgeons commonly apply reconstructive surgery to repair congenital anomalies, tissue loss after trauma or cancer, and functional disorders.

Reconstructive surgery is a critical component of the comprehensive treatment of cancer patients.
