Project Description


Al Fuad Medical Center – Urology Department treat problems of the female urinary system and the male genitourinary tract. They diagnose and treat disorders of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, prostate and male reproductive organs.

  • A procedure that allows your doctor to examine the lining of your bladder and the tube that carries urine out of your body (urethra)
  • A bladder biopsy can be done as part of a cystoscopy. Cystoscopy is a procedure that is done to see the inside of the bladder using a thin lighted tube called a cystoscope. A small piece of tissue or the entire abnormal area is removed.
  • A doubleJ stent is a ureteral stent with curving ends that prevent the stent slipping into the bladder or the kidney.
  • Ureteroscopy with laser lithotripsy is used to break kidney stones that remain stuck in the ureter by directly applying a laser beam to the stone.
  • DoubleJ tube removal is mostly performed under direct cystoscopic visualization. It has an almost 100% success rate.
  • Ureteroscopy with laser lithotripsy is used to break up kidney stones that were not passed and remain lodged in the ureter. During this procedure, a laser beam is applied directly to the stone to break it into small pieces and passed easily.
  • An enlargement of the veins that transport oxygen-depleted blood away from the testicle. A varicocele (VAR-ih-koe-seel) is an enlargement of the veins within the loose bag of skin that holds the testicles (scrotum). These veins transport oxygen-depleted blood from the testicles
  • A type of swelling in the scrotum that occurs when fluid collects in the thin sheath surrounding a testicle.
  • A procedure in which a small portion of testicle is removed for examination. The biopsy is performed by creating a small incision in the skin of the scrotum. A small piece of the testicle tissue is removed through the incision by snipping the sample off with small scissors.
  • Surgery to move an undescended (cryptorchid) testicle into the scrotum and permanently fix it there. Orchiopexy typically also describes the surgery used to resolve testicular torsion.
  • A technique used to remove certain stones in the kidney or upper ureter (the tube that drains urine from the kidney to the bladder) that are too large for other forms of stone treatment such as shock wave lithotripsy or ureteroscopy.
  • Devices are placed inside the penis to allow men with erectile dysfunction (ED) to get an erection.
  • Surgery to remove parts of the prostate gland through the penis. No incisions are needed. The surgeon reaches the prostate by putting an instrument into the end of the penis and through the urethra.
