Urinary Tract Stone Clinic

   provides diagnosis, treatment and consultation for patients suffering urinary tract stones. The diagnosis tools and equipment, together with medical technology, produce timely, precise and accurate diagnosis results;

  •  Medical history inquiry and physical examination by the urologists

  •  Ultrasound of kidney, ureter, and bladder (KUB)
  •  X-ray (radiograph) of kidney, ureter, and bladder (KUB): The radiological images show the shape, features and location of stones which could be in the kidney, ureter or bladder.
  •  Intravenous Pyelography (IVP): The contrast solution is injected into a vein. The contrast material dyes the bladder for the clearer appearance on the x-ray images to allow the  urologists to localize and assess the severity of urine blockage.

  •  Alpha blocker medications
  •  Ureteroscopy with stone removal: A tiny ureteroscope is inserted through the opening of the urethra or ureter, and therefore, causes no wound.
  •  Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL): In case a stone is not larger than 2 cm., shock waves are targeted at the stone, causing it to fragment and exit from your body with urine, without a surgery.
  •  Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PNCL): PNCL is a non-surgical treatment of kidney stones. A small puncture of index finger size on the skin leads to renal pelvis. A tiny nephroscope is inserted, until it reaches the stone.  The stone is crushed by ultrasound probes and then the stone fragments are removed.
  •  Cystolithotripsy: In case of bladder stone, a tool is inserted into the urethra to crush and flood away the stone without an incision.
Urinary Tract Cancer Clinic

  • Transrectal ultrasonography: The test provides images of prostate gland and bladder.
  • Ultrasound of kidney, ureter, and bladder (KUB)
  • Intravenous Pyelography (IVP): Contrast solution is injected into a vein. The contrast material dyes the urinary tract for the clearer appearance of the x-ray images to allow the urologists to localize and assess the severity of urine blockage.
  • Cystoscopy
  • Computed tomography scan or CT scan of whole abdomen
  • Computed tomography scan or CT scan of kidney, ureter, and bladder (KUB)
  • Radical prostatectomy: The open surgery is performed to remove all prostate cancer and lymph node.

Pediatric Urinary Tract Clinic

provides diagnosis, treatment and consultation to children patients suffering urinary tract diseases, as follows;
