Start Your Urologic Surgeries in Iran

Urology is a branch of medical science that is also known as genitourinary surgery. Urology focuses on men's genital problems and urinary tract diseases of both genders. The urinary-tract and the reproductive-tract are very close together, so one function may affect the other. In general, the organs that undergo urologic surgery are the kidneys, ureters, adrenal glands, urethra, urinary bladder, and reproductive organs of men (testicles, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicle, prostate, and penis).
Until the late 20th century, urologic surgeries were usually performed in open surgeries. Such surgeries required the patient to be hospitalized for several days, after which he had to undergo a long recovery. But urologic surgeries today have fewer complications, and new procedures have reduced the length of hospital stay. This capability was created by using laparoscopic surgeries. In laparoscopic surgery, thin tubes and surgical instruments such as light, camera, forceps, and scissors are inserted into the body by creating small holes. All procedures are performed without large incisions in the body and through a vision on the monitor.
The Iranian Urological Association
monitors the urological surgeries in Iran by examining the status of the urologists' scientific, research, equipment, and occupational status. The association also ensures that urologic surgeons in Iran benefit from up-to-date knowledge of urology through communication and membership in international forums, The European Urology Association and The Asian Urology Association. It should be noted that 70% of Iranian urologists are members of this association.

Trust Iran's Experience in Urologic Surgeries
Iran is one of the leading countries in the field of urologic surgery. Iran's achievements in the field of kidney surgery in the Middle East and the world are unique. The most sophisticated surgical procedures, such as mini-laparoscopy, and surgery performed in three-and-a-half-mm holes, are being performed in Iran. It should be noted that the Iranian model of kidney transplantation is also known worldwide.
Dr. Habibollah Mousavi Bahar, President of Hamadan University of Medical Sciences and a member of the Iranian Board of Urology, said: "Many patients from neighbouring countries and even Iranians living abroad now have treatment in Iran for complex kidney disease, reconstructive tasks and cancers of the urinary system such as radical cystectomy, laparoscopy and Mini-laparoscopy in infants and children. They come to Iranian medical centers for treatment by Iranian specialists. The reason is the active presence of professors and urology specialists in foreign congresses and the trust that other countries have in urology specialists in Iran. "

Procedures for Diagnosis and Preparation before Urologic Surgeries

  • The test is used to diagnose open or closed laparoscopic surgery on the patient.
  • Blood tests are needed to check for some cancers and functional tests to check for damaged organs.
  • Ultrasound or radiography provides images of abnormalities in the body.
  • Cystoscopy is often used in the bladder and urethral surgery.
  • Bladder tape and sphincter show how the bladder fills and drains.
  • The specialist diagnoses prostate abnormalities by examining the rectum (the expert wears a glove and inserts the finger into the rectum to touch the prostate gland).

Urologic Surgery Time and Recovery

Depending on the type of surgery and the surgeon's skill, the surgery time varies from a few minutes for diagnostic procedures to 3-5 hours for major surgeries.
The duration of hospitalization varies from one day to one week, depending on the degree of injury and surgery type. Major and serious urology surgeries require stenting and catheterization that is removed after surgery.
Some surgeries are performed in two stages; in the first stage, the patient's tissue is removed, and in the second stage, reconstruction or enlargement is performed to improve and replace the function. The length of hospital stay and recovery time after laparoscopic (close) surgery is shorter and faster, and its side-effects are less than open surgery. The following are the types of urologic surgeries performed by laparoscopy.

Surgeries in The Field of Urology with Laparoscopy

1- Removing the site of ureteral stenosis and kidneys, which are one of the most common kidney abnormalities
2- Removal large ureteral stones
3- Bladder implantation
4- Removal of prostate cancer
5- Varicocele surgery (the most common cause of male infertility)
6- Large kidney cysts
