COMMON UROLOGICAL PROBLEMS

Stones and Prostatic diseases are the common disorders encountered by an urologist. The tropical weather in addition to other environmental factors makes this region as one of the stone belts of the world. Prostatic diseases on the other hand are ubiquitous and it is the disease of the aging male. Om clinic is committed to evaluate and treat these common disorders at an affordable cost.

STONE DISEASE:
Stones form in the kidney or in the urinary bladder. Stones that form in the kidney can stay there and cause pain, infection, loss of renal function or it may travel down into ureter (tube that conducts urine from kidney to bladder) and cause pain. Stones can be treated by Endoscopic, percutaneous and completely non invasive means. The type of treatment would depend on the size, composition and location of your stone. The stones that form in the bladder are infection stones and are usually secondary to obstruction in urine emptying. 

Prevention: Dietary modifications and increase in water intake may reduce the incidence of stones. At least 10 glasses of water a day should be consumed. 2 glasses with every meal and 2 in between meals. Dietary modifications include restriction of animal protein and avoidance of certain foods.

PROSTATIC DISEASES:
Prostate can be a site of infection, benign growth or Malignancy. The exact nature of the disease would depend on the symptoms and the outcome of investigations. The most common entity in prostate is Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). There are varieties of drugs to treat this condition medically. Failure of medical treatment and certain other associated features like refractory retention, renal failure, bladder stone, blood in urine and urinary tract infection would warrant surgical intervention. The Physician would advice the appropriate treatment for you.
