Lancaster General Hospital offers medical and surgical services to treat these diseases and problems. Day surgery and inpatient procedures are both used to help treat patients.
Examples of urological procedures include:
Radical prostatectomy surgery is frequently performed to treat prostate cancer. The patients are admitted the day of surgery usually to a hospital room and return post-surgery.
Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP) is done for enlargement of the prostate. The goal of this surgery is to improve voiding issues for the men. Bladder suspension surgery is done to treat female incontinence.
Cystectomy (removal of the bladder) is done to treat bladder cancer.
Kidney stones are treated both medically and removed surgically. Pain control and nausea can be an issue with these patients.
Nephrectomy (removal of the kidney) is done to treat kidney cancer and infection. An urologist is also consulted for impotence treatment. This is done on an outpatient basis.
