IVF (In-vitro Fertilisation) has been proven to be the most effective form of assisted reproductive techniques when the couple are unable to have a child.
Equipped with a most advanced IVF Lab, our full-time Reproductive Medicine consultants, Andrologists and Embryologists work hand-in-hand as a team to deliver the best success rates in IVF. Our success rates of IVF are in par with international standards and we are one of the very few labs to get certification from ISAR (Indian Society of Assisted Reproduction).
Some of the procedures prior to IVF like hysteroscopy, laparoscopy, egg retrieval and surgical sperm retrieval are done in our fully equipped operating room. Understanding the sensitive issues of the couple, we also offer services of donor sperms and donor eggs based on the medical status of the couple with utmost confidentiality.
We truly stand-up for what we say “Discovering Parenthood”.
Reconstructive urology deals with reconstructing any part of the urinary system to maintain a safe urinary system. Urethral stricture is very common condition which needs reconstruction for a good urinary flow and to prevent complications like infection and kidney failure.
Persistent urinary leakage could be due to several reasons. Reconstructing the sphincter surgically by placing an artificial urinary sphincter or placing mid-urethral slings for stress urinary leak could make a significant positive impact on quality of life.
Neuro-urology focuses mainly on the disorders of bladder related to spinal injuries and neurological disorders, more commonly referred to as neurogenic bladder.
Urodynamics test is a computer assisted study done to assess the pressures in the bladder and sphincter in various clinical conditions. The objective of urodynamic study is to help in the selection of an appropriate treatment. This is done for both men and women. It is commonly done when there is urinary leakage, obstruction due to prostate enlargement, repeated urinary infections or sometimes when there is lot of residual urine in bladder.
Urological cancers include those of kidney, adrenal gland, ureter, bladder, prostate, penis and testis. Most of the cancers if detected at an early age can make a significant change in the outcomes of the treatment. Timely intervention and surgical expertise matters the most during cancer treatment.
With a multidisciplinary team of specialists in medical and surgical aspects of Uro-oncology, we have been successful in offering curative therapy for many of our cancer patients with a good quality of life.
Paediatric Urology is a surgical subspecialty that deals with issues of children’s genitourinary systems and Paediatric Nephrology is its medical counterpart. We offer specialized care for the entire spectrum of paediatric urologic and nephrology disorders. We have dedicated special rooms for children to make them as comfortable as possible.
NU Bedwetting clinic is one of the first in India. Among the pediatric conditions treated include:
  • Structural abnormalities of the kidney, ureter and bladder such as PUJ obstruction, vesicoureteric reflux (VUR), posterior urethral valve (PUV)
  • Urinary tract infection (UTI)
  • Kidney stones and tumours
  • Renal (kidney) cystic disease
  • Blood in urine (Hematuria), Nephrotic syndrome, Hypertension
  • Undescended testis
We offer peritoneal dialysis, vascular access, hemodialysis and kidney transplant services for kidney failure in children. We were the first in Karnataka state to use the latest miniature endoscopes to deal with kidney stones in very young children. We have also collaborated with international hospitals in USA and Iceland for evaluation of kidney stones in very young children to offer the best possible care.
We are the pioneers in Kidney transplant surgery since we began our transplant services in 1999. Compared to long-term dialysis, a Kidney transplant offers better quality of life, fewer dietary restrictions, lower risk of death and lower overall treatment costs.
Our Nephrologists and Urologists do a thorough work-up of the kidney recipient and the related donor. We are one of the few centres in India to do ABO blood group incompatible and pediatric kidney transplants. Minimally invasive surgical techniques would be offered wherever feasible.
A dedicated experienced transplant nursing team will take care of the post-surgery rehabilitation.
Andrology is a subspecialty of Urology addressing Men’s Sexual Health and Male Infertility. Some of the common conditions treated include Erectile Dysfunction (ED), Premature Ejaculation, Testosterone (male hormone) deficiency causing low sex drive and abnormalities in semen /sperm preventing the couple from a having a child.
Our “Men’s Health Clinic” is one of its kind in Souṭh India addressing various men’s urological and reproductive health issues, and is the centre of excellence for penile implant surgery.
We have internationally trained experts with state-of-the-art technology and equipments (such as surgical microscope and microdoppler) to deliver world class care.
Minimally invasive surgery, also known as laparoscopic or keyhole surgery is a procedure that uses a small telescope with built-in magnification mechanism and a variety of thin surgical instruments.
The advantages are smaller skin scars, lesser post-operative pain, less blood loss during surgery and early recovery to work. Hence the need for extra medications in the post-operative period come down significantly after laparoscopic surgery.
Laparoscopic surgeries are commonly done for the problems involving kidney, adrenal gland, ureter, bladder and prostate.
Endourology involves usage of small endoscopes and instrumentation to see inside the urinary tract and perform surgery. What distinguishes endourology from traditional urology is that all procedures are done internally, without any extensive skin scars. Endourology is also known as minimally invasive urologic surgery.
Many urologic operations like kidney stones and prostate surgery that were once done by open surgery can now be performed through the endoscopes. Much of this change has been due to improved technology.
We have the best endourology armamentarium and necessary expertise to handle them.
