Endoskopic surgery

Endoscopic surgery is performed in our Urology and Pediatric Urology Departments with the aid of highly specialized modern instruments (endoscopes) that offer the highest degree of mechanical precision and optical resolution. These endoscopes can be used to perform the endoscopy of the urethra (urethroscopy), the bladder (cystoscopy), the ureter (ureteroscopy) and the pyelocaliceal system (renoscopy). These types of endoscpy are used not only for examination, surgical interventions can also be carried out in this way. For example, removal of stones from the ureter or the kidney or tissue sampling from these organs.

These endoscopic diagnostics and operations are performed either under local or general anesthesia, depending on the disease. Whether the procedure is carried out in outpatient or inpatient basis, is individually discussed with the patient.

We focus on:

  • Prevention of the urine flow from the kidney to the urinary bladder by means of ureteral stent
  • Photodynamic diagnostics of urinary bladder tumors (PDD)
  • Removal of bladder tumFlankeors through the urethra (Video-TUR-B)
  • Endoscopic widening of urethral constrictions
  • Operative treatment of prostate enlargement by ablation with the electric loop (video-TUR-P) or Greenlight laser
  • Endoscopy of bladder, ureter and renal pelvis with modern equipment for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes (disintegration and removal of ureteral stones / ureter sampling)
  • Direct endoscopy of the renal pelvis through a puncte of a kidney flank for disintegration of larger kidney stones with the aid of laser
  • Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL), stone location using radiography as well as sonography with all auxillary measures
  • Endoscopic removal of urinary stone in the entire urinary tract (e.g., by laser)
