Ureteroscopy in Dubai at DRHC

Ureteroscopy Overview

Ureteroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure used to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the ureters, the tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder. This procedure involves the use of a ureteroscope, a thin, flexible instrument equipped with a camera and light, which allows our skilled urologists at DRHC Dubai to visually examine the ureters and perform necessary interventions.

When is Ureteroscopy Needed?

Ureteroscopy is commonly recommended for the following conditions:

  • Kidney Stones: To locate and remove stones in the ureters or kidneys.
  • Ureteral Strictures: To identify and treat narrowings or blockages in the ureters.
  • Tumors: To diagnose and manage tumors within the ureters.
  • Hematuria: To investigate the source of blood in the urine.
  • Ureteral Injuries: To assess and repair injuries to the ureters.

Procedure Details

  1. Preparation: Patients may be asked to fast for a certain period before the procedure. Anesthesia is administered to ensure comfort, typically general anesthesia.
  2. Insertion: The ureteroscope is gently inserted through the urethra, into the bladder, and then into the ureter.
  3. Examination: The urologist examines the ureter and, if necessary, performs interventions such as stone removal or biopsy.
  4. Stone Removal: For kidney stones, specialized tools can be used to break up and remove the stones.
  5. Stent Placement: In some cases, a temporary stent may be placed to ensure urine flows freely from the kidney to the bladder during healing.

Benefits of Ureteroscopy

  • Minimally Invasive: No external incisions, resulting in less pain and quicker recovery.
  • High Success Rate: Effective in diagnosing and treating various ureteral conditions.
  • Quick Recovery: Most patients can resume normal activities within a few days.
  • Precision: Direct visualization allows for accurate diagnosis and targeted treatment.

Recovery and Aftercare

After the procedure, patients may experience mild discomfort or a burning sensation during urination, which usually resolves within a few days. Drinking plenty of fluids can help flush out any remaining stone fragments and reduce discomfort. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor recovery and ensure the ureters are healing properly.
