Pediatric Urology

  1. Pediatric Cystoscopy:

    • Pediatric cystoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure used to examine and visualize the inside of the bladder and urethra in children. A cystoscope, a thin tube with a camera, is inserted through the urethra into the bladder to diagnose and treat various urological conditions.
  2. PUV Fulguration (Posterior Urethral Valve Fulguration):

    • PUV fulguration is a surgical procedure performed to treat a congenital condition known as posterior urethral valves. These valves obstruct the urethra, impacting urine flow. Fulguration involves using a special tool to ablate or destroy the obstructing tissue, improving urinary function.
  3. Hypospadias Surgery:

    • Hypospadias is a congenital condition where the opening of the urethra is located on the underside of the penis instead of the tip. Hypospadias surgery is a corrective procedure to reposition the urethral opening to its normal location, typically on the tip of the penis, to improve function and appearance.
  4. Ureteric Re-Implant Surgery:

    • Ureteric re-implantation is a surgical procedure commonly performed in pediatric urology to correct abnormalities in the connection between the ureter and the bladder. It involves detaching and repositioning the ureter to prevent issues such as reflux (backward flow of urine), which can lead to kidney damage.
