Urology is a medical science that studies male and female reproductive organs and urinary tract. It examines the diagnosis and treatment process of all diseases related to organs such as kidneys, bladder, ureters, urethra, penis, testicles, scrotum and prostate gland. Urology includes both the infection in the urinary tract and the surgical interventions of the urinary system. The name given to all diseases related to the reproductive system and urinary tract is known as "urogenital disorders." The urology system deals with the reproductive and excretory system, especially in men. In women, it mostly deals with excretory system diseases. Since the reproductive system and excretory systems in women should be examined as a whole, urology works together with the gynecologist. Urology is divided into sub-disciplines within itself. These are andrology, pediatric urology, female urology, neurourology, endourology and urooncology.

Andrology is one of the sub-branches of urology dealing with sexual dysfunctions. Male and female sexual health and male infertility are common and studied diseases. Basic researches such as all anatomical, physiological and biochemistry are carried out in such diseases. The most common complaints about this area are sexual anorexia in men and women, pain syndromes in the reproductive organs, disorders in the penile structure and male infertility. In diseases with hormonal problems, treatments are carried out together with endocrinology and psychiatry specialists. The solution against male infertility is treatment with IVF method.

Pediatric Urology: It is a sub-science developed for urology diseases in children. Such diseases seen in children can give symptoms quite late. However, thanks to the advanced technology developed in recent years, even the examinations of abnormalities for a baby are made in the ultrasound environment and the treatment process begins as soon as it is born. In addition to these, urology assistance is sought in cases such as urinary problems, gender ambiguity or swelling in the genitals that may be experienced in newborn babies or in advanced ages. In addition, disorders such as frequent urination, pain in the kidneys, erroneous circumcision, urinary incontinence during the day or night are also examined.

Female Urology: It is a sub-science that includes two branches, namely urogynecology. Disorders such as pelvic prolapse, urinary incontinence and overactive bladder are dealt with. 60% of women between the ages of 20 and 70 have these diseases. Since the reasons for the occurrence of diseases vary according to the individual, the decision to be made for treatment has a personalized medical or surgical feature.

Neurourology: It is a sub-science that examines the urinary discharge problems that occur with the disorders of the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves. Necessary treatments are performed for the diagnosis of diseases that occur as a result of complaints such as urinary problems experienced at night and frequent urination.

Endurology: It is the sub-science that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of stones in the urinary tract and kidneys. Treatments can be done in many ways according to the size and frequency of the stones.

Urooncology: It is a sub-science that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of urological organ cancers such as bladder, kidney, prostate or testis. If diagnosed early, very good responses to treatments are obtained. It is absolutely necessary to seek the help of a specialist urologist in all kinds of urinary disorders such as blood coming from the urine, swelling in the ovaries even if it is painless, and pain in the abdominal cavities.

Urological Tests and Surgical Interventions

In urological problems, the general health status of the patient is examined and some tests may be requested to examine the disease in more detail. Common tests are:
MRI scan or CT scan to pinpoint the exact location of the disease
Ultrasound (Doppler USG, transrectal USG, urinary USG),
Urine test against infection risks,
Cystogram of the bladder taken with the help of X-rays,
Use of a cystoscope necessary to visualize the urinary tract,
Urodynamic tests required for intrabladder pressure and volume measurement,
Voiding cystourettography (VSUG),
Biopsy against cancer risk,
Blood tests required to examine the urinary system,
Prostate specific antigen (PSA) test,
Semen analysis,
Urine flow test,
Rectal examination.

After the necessary tests are performed, surgical intervention may be required during the treatment process. Operational techniques generally used in patient treatments are as follows:
Classical operations (kidney, bladder, urinary tract, prostate, testicular diseases),
Percutaneous stone surgery (kidney stones)
Radical prostate surgeries,
Laparoscopic surgeries,
Endoscopic surgeries,
Microscopic surgeries (in infertility treatment),

General Surgery

Medicana Hospitals Group provides high quality standards in surgery and postoperative care processes with its doctors and medical staff specialized in the field of General Surgery. With its full-fledged hospital, operating room and medical care units located in different provinces, it successfully completes surgical processes in the healthiest way possible. Thanks to the staff of doctors specialized in different surgical subjects, maximum positive results are aimed in the treatment of all diseases in the field of General Surgery.

What is General Surgery?

General surgery is a discipline based on the principle of repairing diseases that cannot be treated with medication or other medical methods by surgery or healing by cutting the diseased organ. The General Surgery department, which has different fields of study, cooperates with units that have expertise in different subjects such as oncology, endocrinology, traumatology. General Surgery, which is one of the areas where new generation medical applications are used most frequently, is a treatment system where robotic technology is used extensively and successful results are obtained.

Which Diseases Does General Surgery Treat?

The organs to which the operations will be performed or the systems to which they are connected are also the determinants of which part of the General Surgery will be treated. Thyroid gland surgeries are performed to eliminate the diseases of the patients of the endocrinology department that require surgical treatment. General Surgery works with more than one different department. For the treatment of digestive system diseases, operations such as esophagus, small and large intestines, stomach, rectum, liver, gall bladder are performed by General Surgery. Operations are performed by open or closed methods. Endoscopic and laparoscopic systems, which are frequently used among closed surgery methods, contribute positively to the rapid progress of postoperative recovery. For this reason, closed surgery methods are more preferred by doctors and patients recently. Breast complaints are among the important health problems that women and in some cases also men suffer from. Surgical removal of benign or malignant formations in the breast is among the topics of General Surgery.

General Surgery also functions in terms of preventive medicine, especially in some cases that require follow-up processes such as breasts. It is essential to follow the patient with preventive medicine methods and to eliminate the problem without the need for surgery. A significant part of General Surgery patients are oncology patients. Tumor formations that can occur in different parts of the body are eliminated in cooperation with General Surgery and specialists in the field where the relevant organ is attached. The diagnosis and treatment methods of oncology patients are planned and applied simultaneously by General Surgery and the specialist doctors of the relevant department. Surgery and post-operative treatment methods continue to be carried out with different units such as Pathology, Radiology, Medical Oncology.
