Reasons to Get a Pyeloplasty

Reasons to Get a Pyeloplasty

A pyeloplasty is a surgical procedure that can be implemented to remove obstructions from the ureter. In addition, a pyeloplasty can help reduce the risk of developing kidney stones over the long term. 

If you have an obstruction that is impeding the proper function of the ureter, you might just need a pyeloplasty. When there is an interruption or obstruction that interferes with the tube that drains urine from the kidney to the bladder via the ureter, a pyeloplasty may be in order. 

However, no two pyeloplasties are exactly the same, so it’s important to talk with your doctor about what procedures he or she might recommend for your specific health needs and circumstances. The urologists at Z Urology can help you navigate the process and help you make the best decision. 

There are multiple ways to go about a pyeloplasty. For example, there is an open pyeloplasty, robot-assisted pyeloplasty, and laparoscopic pyeloplasty. The exact method that’s best for you depends on your individual situation. Our team at Z Urology can help you determine which particular method would be most beneficial to you. 

When there’s an obstruction blocking the flow of urine from the kidneys to the bladder, you may experience symptoms like vomiting, hydronephrosis, kidney stones, and frequent urinary tract infections.

What You Should Know About Ureteral Reimplantations

What You Should Know About Ureteral Reimplantations

Ureteral reimplantation is a procedure in which the connection between the bladder and the kidneys is restored. When the connection between the bladder and the kidneys is compromised, you could experience some serious health problems. Fortunately, those problems can be corrected by having a qualified urologist from a respected clinic like Z Urology perform ureteral reimplantation. 

What You Should Know Aout Ureteral Reimplantation

This surgical procedure can help people who are suffering from the effects of urine from the bladder flooding the kidneys. Certain people suffer from urine coming back up through the tubes that connect the bladder to the kidneys. When that happens, it’s imperative to seek medical attention from an experienced urologist. 

People suffering from vesicoureteral reflux can benefit from ureteral reimplantation. When urine is fed into the kidneys from the bladder because of a discrepancy with the tubes that connect the two organs, it won’t cause any pain. 

Although vesicoureteral reflux doesn’t cause any noticeable pain, it can cause damage to the kidneys and dramatically increases one’s chances of getting a UTI. When the ureter isn’t properly connected to the wall of the bladder, it can cause damage to your kidneys. 

A bad connection between your ureter and your bladder can even cause scarring to the kidneys. Most disturbing of all, it can cause irreversible damage to your kidneys if left untreated. You should know that vesicoureteral reflux doesn’t go away on its own, it’s something that requires treatment.

What Happens When You Have Your Prostate Surgically Removed

What Happens When You Have Your Prostate Surgically Removed

Prostate cancer can be frightening, however, modern medicine has made it possible to treat a large number of cases of prostate cancer successfully. In some cases, it’s necessary to remove the entire prostate to beat the cancer and keep it under control. Most men are understandably nervous about what happens after having their prostate surgically removed. Here are some things that you should know about what can happen after having your prostate removed. 

Things You Should Be Prepared for After Your Prostate Has Been Removed 

If you have to have your prostate removed, there are some changes that you should b prepared for. Some of these changes are just temporary while others are more permanent. For example, it’s fairly common for men to have ED, or, erectile dysfunction for the first few months after having their prostate removed. 

Although many cases of ED occur after the removal of the prostate, you should see a urologist if the problem persists. You may also experience urinary incontinence which can last for anywhere between a number of weeks or a few months. If you’re still experiencing problems with urinary incontinence a few months after your surgery, it’s time to see a urologist and get to the bottom of it. 

Finally, you should know that having your prostate surgically removed will render you infertile. If you’re still interested in having children, you can have your sperm banked and secured until you’re ready to have a child.

Have Incontinence? Your Diet Could be a Contributing Factor

Have Incontinence? Your Diet Could be a Contributing Factor

One of the most embarrassing urological conditions a man can have aside from erectile dysfunction is incontinence. If you have been experiencing incontinence, you shouldn’t just assume that it’s a natural result of your age. In some cases, incontinence is driven by a person’s diet. Here’s what you should know about how your diet could be contributing to incontinence. 

How Your Diet Can Affect Incontinence

The debate on whether the consumption of water, caffeine, or alcohol can cause incontinence is a rather intense one. Some men experience fewer problems with incontinence after reducing their intake of caffeine while others do not. That said, there are certain foods that have been known to cause incontinence.

According to the National Association for Continence, acidic foods like citrus fruits may contribute to incontinence. Spicy foods, tomatoes, and corn syrup have also been shown to cause incontinence. 

Although it’s possible for certain foods to cause incontinence, you should always consult with a urologist and get tested to make sure it’s not being caused by a more serious issue like having an enlarged prostate or a problem in your urinary tract. 

In any case, when you have incontinence, it’s important to eat plenty of leafy greens, and vegetables. Depending on the exact cause and severity of the condition, incontinence can be treated through a combination of physical therapy, medication, and muscle training. In some cases, surgery may be required to fully correct the condition.
