Reconstructive Urology

The Urology Clinic evaluates and treats a wide variety of patients, some of whom have complex urologic conditions that require reconstructive therapies. Often these patients have undergone previous surgery, radiation therapy, or have long-standing difficulties and thus need a physician with expertise in this area.

Conditions Requiring Reconstruction

Not every patient with the conditions listed below require reconstructive techniques, but many will.

  • Bladder neck contracture
  • Urethral stricture
  • Hypospadias
  • Urinary fistula

Evaluation

The evaluation begins with a detailed history and physical examination and may include the following:

  • Urinalysis
  • Urine culture and sensitivity
  • Cystoscopy
  • Post-void residual measurement
  • CT scan or Cystourethrogram
  • Urodynamics

Treatment

Treatment is individualized to each patient and largely depends upon the patient’s prior surgical history, the results of his or her evaluation, and long-term goals. For many patients, this will require an operation to correct the abnormality.

Summary

The Urology Clinic has a long history of treating patients with complex conditions requiring reconstructive surgery. Our expertise and comprehensive care seek to provide patients with the best experience possible.
