Procedures Urologists perform
An antegrade pyelogram is an imaging test to find a blockage (obstruction) in the upper urinary tract. Your urinary tract includes the kidneys, ureters, and bladder. The ureters are the narrow tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder. During the test, the radiologist injects a contrast dye into a kidney. The radiologist uses X-ray images to watch the contrast dye as it moves from the kidney into the ureter and then to the bladder.
Circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin that covers the tip of the penis.
Cryotherapy for Prostate Cancer
Cryotherapy involves freezing the cancer cells and cutting off their blood supply. Tiny needles are placed right into the tumor. Argon gases are passed through the needles and exchanged with helium gases. This causes a freezing and warming cycle. The frozen, dead tissue then thaws and is naturally absorbed by the body.
