Reconstructive Urology

Reconstructive Urology is a specialised field in urology that focuses on restoring both the structure and functions of the genitourinary tract. Conditions that can necessitate reconstructive surgery are prostate procedures; trauma, such as industrial accidents; straddle injuries; urethral strictures; and sometimes, complicated childbirth involving tear in the tissue.

Surgeons should have extensive expertise in performing complex reconstructive surgery on the kidney, ureter, bladder, urethra, and male genitals. Common reconstructive surgery procedures include:

  • Urethral disruption injuries caused by a fractured pelvis
  • Recto-urinary fistulas following prostatectomy or pelvic surgery or after radiation therapy
  • Refractory male urethral strictures
  • Major bladder reconstruction
  • Major ureter reconstruction
  • Vesicovaginal or ureterovaginal fistulas after pelvic surgery
  • Male urinary incontinence
  • Peyronie’s disease
