Urethroscopy treatment in Mysore

Who Should Have a Urethroscopy?

A ureteroscopy can assist in determining any undiscovered urinary system issues you may be experiencing, such as blocked urine. Just because it aches to urinate and you aren't going to pee as frequently as you should doesn't necessarily mean you will have to undergo surgery. It will depend on your symptoms and the results of additional tests.

Medical professionals occasionally use Ureteroscopy as part of the kidney stone removal procedure shock wave lithotripsy. This is mainly beneficial for pregnant women, those with blood clotting issues, and overweight people.

How Should one Prepare oneself before surgery?

To prepare for a ureteroscopy, not much is necessary. Before the surgery, you should urinate. You should also be given instructions for how long you must go without food, liquids, and some medications before the procedure. This is crucial if you use blood thinners to lower your risk of blood clots. Make sure someone can drive you home as well.

How Does a ureteroscope Work?

The ureteroscope tip will be inserted into your urethra (the tube through which urine passes out of your body) by your urologist once the anaesthetic has taken effect and you are unconscious. 

Your urologist will insert the ureteroscope into the bladder, who will then release a sterile solution through the tool's tip. This helps to make the bladder's walls more visible. The tool then carefully glides into a ureter. If a renal-related problem is detected, the tool is taken up to the kidney. Then the urinary tract is carefully monitored for about 30 minutes.  Sometimes the process can even take more time. Book an appointment to have the best treatment.

A ureteroscopy utilising a laser (usually Holmium laser) to dissolve minute kidney stones might take around 60 to 90 minutes.


  • After the ureteroscope is removed and the fluid in your bladder is drained, you will start to feel better as the effect of anaesthesia fades off. This could take a few hours. Sometimes a stent may be left at the site (a small tube to provide support), although this is rare.

  •  Following surgery, it is advisable to consume plenty of water.

  • For the following 24 hours, you could feel discomfort when urinating and notice a little blood in your urine. There shouldn't be much pain or discomfort after that.

  • In case of infection, you can be given an antibiotic and painkiller prescription. To relieve some discomfort, you might also need to take a warm bath or cover the entrance of your urethra with a warm, moist washcloth.

  • Inform your doctor if you experience severe discomfort, chills, or a fever. You may have an infection if this is the case.

  • You might have to wait a few days for test findings if a tissue sample was taken for a biopsy. Visit our best urology  hospital in Mysore for the best treatment
