The various procedures which can be done on the Short Stay basis for Urology are

Cystoscopy

This is a diagnostic procedure to check the Urethra and the Bladder. A small telescope ( Cystoscope ) is passed through the urinary pipe to have a look as well as carry out any procedures such as treating the Urethral Stricture, removal of small Bladder Tumours, removing any small stones in the Bladder. The insertion or removal of the Double 'J' stents can also be done during this procedure.

Lower Ureteric Stones
:
The stones in the lower part of the Ureter can be treated on a Short stay basis. After passing the Ureteroscope, the stones can be broken by the Lithotripsy and extracted with the help of the Basket. A Double 'J' stent may be inserted after the procedure, which will be removed at the later date.

Varicocele:
The dilatation of the veins around the Testes is called Varicocele. It can cause pain and discomfort in the scrotum. The other significant effect of Varicocele is on the Male Infertility. The ligation of Varicocele is carried out as a Day-Case procedure involving two small cuts in the groins and carefully ligating the dilated veins with the help of a microscope.

Circumcision, Vasectomy
These are the other procedures ideally suitable on a short stay basis. There is minimum disturbance in the patient's routine and they can get back to work quickly.
