Expert treatment of urinary symptoms and urological problems
At BMI The Highfield Hospital in Lancashire, our experienced urologists help treat many conditions and symptoms in both men and women and would be delighted to help you too.
Your urinary tract consists of the bladder, kidneys, ureter (the tubes connecting your kidneys to your bladder) and urethra, as well as the prostate (in men).
If anything stops any part of this system working properly, it has the potential to affect your health and quality of life. You will often also experience symptoms, some of which may be quite concerning.
Common reasons people come to see our urologists for help include:
If you have any of these symptoms, it can be a sensible course of action to see a urologist for expert advice.
Simple things like drinking less tea, coffee or alcohol may be helpful for certain symptoms.
Other conditions may be treated with medication such as tablets, antibiotics or injections. These can be used for a number of conditions such as recurrent UTIs, an enlarged prostate, certain types and stages of prostate cancer or erectile dysfunction.
If non-surgical treatments do not give you adequate symptom relief, your urologist may discuss surgery with you as an option.
This will often involve a cystoscopy, where a thin tube with a camera (cystoscope) is passed through your urethra and into the bladder. Surgical tools can be passed down the tube if needed, allowing your surgeon to carry out a range of treatments such as removal of small stones from the bladder. A tissue sample (biopsy) can also be taken for further analysis if required.
A transurethral resection of a bladder tumour (TURBT) may be done out to determine the type of bladder tumour present.
A urethrotomy can be carried out to resolve problems that are caused by a narrowing in the urethra.
Stones in the kidney or renal tract can often be treated by extra-corporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL) and laser treatment. Your consultant will discuss the best course of action depending on the size and location of your stone.
In men, surgery can be carried out to alter the size of the prostate in order to allow urine to flow more freely. A common operation is trans-urethral resection of the prostate (TURP).
Circumcision, vasectomy and vasectomy reversal can also all be carried out.
