Urology deals with diagnosing and treating problems medically or surgically involving the male and female urinary tract and the male reproductive organs. NU Urology department has full-time subspecialty specific urology consultants who deliver the expert care individualized to the needs of the patient.


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 comes down significantly after laparoscopic surgery.
Laparoscopic surgeries are commonly done for the problems involving kidney, adrenal gland, ureter, bladder and prostate.

Paediatric Urology is a surgical subspecialty that deals with issues of children’s genitourinary system. We offer specialized care for the entire spectrum of paediatric urologic conditions and 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
  • Blood in urine (Hematuria),
  • Undescended testis

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.

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.

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.

Neuro-urology focuses mainly on the disorders of bladder related to spinal injuries and neurological disorders, more commonly referred to as neurogenic bladder.

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.
