A Glimpse At Some Urological Conditions and Procedures We Handle in South Florida
Sometimes when people read an article, they come across information that comes in handy to know about a condition they are suffering from and didn’t know what it was or have been afraid to find out what to do about it. Let’s start with urinary reconstruction; it is a surgical procedure that repairs or reconstructs the urinary tract. It may be necessary for a variety of reasons, such as trauma, cancer, or birth defects. Another condition is a bladder fistula, an abnormal connection between two different cavities of the body. There are four types of fistulas; there is the kind that connects the intestine to the skin, the second fistula that connects the vagina to the bladder, the third involves the large or small intestine, and lastly, a fistula that goes to the bladder. Fistulas can cause other conditions if they are not treated, such as bowel incontinence, sepsis, perforation, and peritonitis. Let’s look at some more conditions and treatments where some patients need pyeloplasty surgery to repair a blockage in the ureteropelvic junction. There is a procedure called ureteral reimplantation which repositions the ureter where it connects to the bladder. There are a number of different types of ureteral blockage; at times, they are congenital. Taking a look at some treatments for urinary incontinence, such as bladder and urethral slings, which are surgical procedures. A sling is a mesh or synthetic material that is placed under the urethra or bladder to provide support and improve urinary control. Another procedure is bladder mesh revision, which is a surgery to remove or repair mesh that was previously implanted to treat urinary incontinence or prolapse.
Z Urology also treats conditions like Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland, with procedures to help remedy it. Taking a look into some kidney/bladder/prostate-related treatments, Rezum and the UroLift are minimally invasive treatments for benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). The UroLift procedure, also known as the prostatic urethral lift (PUL) procedure, is a minimally invasive treatment option for benign prostatic hyperplasia. BPH is a common condition in which the prostate gland enlarges and obstructs the urethra, leading to urinary symptoms such as difficulty urinating and weak urine flow. During the Urolift procedure, the urologist places small implants into the prostate to lift and hold the enlarged tissue out of the way, thereby widening the prostatic urethra and relieving the obstruction. This is done using a cystoscope, which is a thin tube with a camera and light on the end that allows the urologist to see inside the urethra and prostate. The UroLift procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia in an outpatient setting and does not require any incisions or removal of prostate tissue. The implants are made of a special material that is safe and well-tolerated by the body and can be adjusted or removed if necessary. Overall, the Urolift procedure is a safe and effective option for men with BPH who are looking for a minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgical treatments.
Additional Urological Conditions We Treat in South Florida
Laser Lithotripsy, Lithotripsy, Extracorporeal Shock Wave, and Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy are some of the treatments available for kidney/bladder stones. We also have Davinci Robotic Surgery which is a minimally invasive surgical option for many urological procedures, including Urinary Reconstruction, Radical Prostatectomy (RARP, RALP), Simple Prostatectomy, and Radical and Partial Nephrectomy. Urinary dysfunction can be caused by a variety of conditions, such as urinary tract infections/prostatitis, urinary incontinence, interstitial cystitis, and neurogenic bladder. We’re not done yet; Z Urology has treatments for Neurogenic bladder as well. Neurogenic bladder is a condition in which the nerves that control the bladder are damaged or not functioning properly. This can cause problems with bladder emptying and can lead to urinary incontinence or urinary retention. We also take care of vasectomy procedures, which is a safe and permanent form of birth control for men.
