Urological disorders frequently seen in women and men of all ages are those seen in the urinary tract and organs and in the reproductive organs of men. Urology is the name of the surgical branch that examines the urinary tract and reproductive organs and deals with the diagnosis, medical and surgical treatment of diseases that occur in these systems. Urological ailments are very common; and they can affect your daily life quality to a great extent, and cause stress, pain and shame. Moment Medikal, working with highly experienced doctors and hospitals in this branch, provides you with access to health services that will help improve your health and life quality.

From sexual health problems to prostate disease, men may encounter a range of conditions that affect their daily lives. Many of these ailments are treatable, but it is important to identify and understand the symptoms. Our doctors offer the most innovative treatments for all these ailments. Among the treatments for men's health high PSA, enlarged prostate, erection problems, incontinence, infertility, penile curvature and prosthesis, premature ejaculation, premature aging can be counted.
Penis prostheses, which are called happiness sticks in daily language, are used for men who cannot find a cure for erection problem with other treatments. Thanks to the silicone artificial penises placed by a surgical intervention, men can get rid of this important problem. Two types of prosthesis are used in penis prosthesis operations. The first of these is the collapsible penis prostheses that remain constantly hard but have the ability to bend and twist thanks to the silicone material. In these types of prostheses, the constant hardness of the prostheses can eliminate the natural feeling. Another type of prosthesis is the prosthesis that can be inflated and deflated at any time thanks to the pump mechanism. These prostheses are two or three parts.
Penis prostheses do not have a duty to increase sexual desire. The purpose of penis prosthesis operations is to enable the penis to set a proper angle.
Penis prosthesis operations can take between 1 hour and 1.5 hours depending on the type of prosthesis to be worn. The patient stays in the hospital for a few days after the penis replacement surgery. In these operations, keeping the surgery area clean is critical. The patient should strictly follow the instructions of the surgeon after discharge. The patient's sexual intercourse may be possible after a 4-week period if this process continues without any problems. Hardening, which is one of the most important problems of men all over the world, finds solutions thanks to penis prosthesis operations.
Penis curvature operations
Penis curvature, which is one of the frequently encountered problems in men, can lead to extensive problems if left untreated. The problem of penile curvature in men may be congenital or may occur with advanced age effect. Today, thanks to surgical techniques that can be a solution in both cases, men can completely eliminate this problem. After the penis aesthetic operations, the formal anomaly in the penis is eliminated and there is no functional loss.
In the treatment of congenital penile curvature, the curvature in the tubes, which takes part in the erection of the penis and also gives the shape of the penis, is eliminated. Microscopic surgery and penile anatomy knowledge of the surgeon who will perform this operation is critical in the success of the operation. In this operation, the surgeon sutures stitches in the opposite direction to eliminate curvature in the tubes, and at this point, the vessels and nerves must be separated from the tube. Otherwise, there is a risk of temporary or permanent dysfunctions.
The reason for the penile curvature that occurs with the advancement of age can be summarized as calcification occurring in the sheaths around the tubes that provide the erection and flatness of the penis. This problem, which can be easily eliminated by a surgical intervention, can lead to sexual intercourse problems if it is not treated.
Kidney stone treatments
Our kidneys, which are of vital importance such as the removal of waste materials from our body, also filter some necessary substances for us. Due to many factors, kidney stones may form during this filtering process. Kidney stone formation can occur depending on many factors, from age, diet, genetic factors to place of residence. These stones, which sometimes cause unbearable pain, are tried to be removed from the body with different methods. Apart from medical treatment, the problem can be resolved with extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PCNL) and ureteroscopy treatments.
Treatment with shock waves (ESWL): In this treatment, focused shock waves are transferred from the skin towards the stone. The stone is broken into small pieces by absorbing the energy of the shock waves. It is excreted from the body after the treatment.
Ureteroscopic lithotripsy (URS): In this treatment, the doctor anesthetizes the patient and, through an endoscopic intervention, enters the body through the urinary tract without incision; first reaches the bladder, then reaches the urinary canal and kidney, and breaks the stone. In this treatment, stones can be powdered using flexible optics.
Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PNL): Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy, preferred for large stones, is performed by anesthetizing the patient. With the help of a tube placed in the kidney from the back, kidney stones are removed. The risks of percutaneous nephrolithotomy interventions are also greatly reduced since the size of the devices used decreases as technology improves.
Mini Percutaneous: Mini Percutaneous treatment, which has the same process as percutaneous nephrolithotomy intervention, uses miniature nephroscope and miniature devices. The success rates of both methods are similar, but Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy is preferred in the treatment of large stones.
Laparoscopic Uro Oncology
Uro oncology is the field of study that focuses on cancers of urological organs such as bladder, prostate, testis and treatment of these cancers. If the early diagnosis is made in the field of uro oncology, very positive results can be obtained; and thanks to recent laparoscopic operations, the patient has a much less painful and easier treatment process. The rapid response of patients to urinary blood, urination difficulties, various swelling in the ovaries, and unreasonable pain in the lateral side of the abdomen facilitates the diagnosis, which increases the success rate of uro oncological treatments.
Laparoscopic prostate cancer surgery:
Laparoscopic interventions are extremely common in prostate cancer surgeries. Laparoscopic prostate cancer operations are much more painless, have no blood loss and are more easily overcome than open surgeries. The patient can return to daily life much faster.
In the treatment of prostate cancer, one of the most common types of cancer in the field of uro oncology, the surgeon makes a laparoscopic intervention through an incision by opening a very small one under the navel. The laparoscope enters through the incision and the surgeon makes the necessary operations thanks to the video camera. A thin and flexible tube (catheter) is inserted into the penis to support the bladder to empty after surgery. After the healing process, the catheter is removed.
Laparoscopic bladder cancer surgery:
One of the types of cancer that requires uro oncological treatment is bladder cancer. Laparoscopic interventions are also very common in therapeutic operations of bladder cancer. During the laparoscopic intervention to bladder cancer, the surgeon opens a few incisions in the abdominal region, sends the camera inside and the image of the region is reflected on the screen. Based on this image, the surgeon concludes the procedure to be performed. In these operations, tissues that may pose a risk around the bladder and bladder are generally removed. The success rate in laparoscopic bladder cancer operations is high and rises day by day. As with all types of cancer, early diagnosis is vital in bladder cancer in all treatment processes.
