Effective treatment for urinary symptoms, FAST
Urology is the area of medicine involved in the diagnosis and treatment of problems in the male and female urinary tract, and of the male reproductive system. A doctor who specialises in this area is a Consultant Urologist.
At The Cavell Hospital in Enfield, North London, we provide expert assessment, diagnosis, and treatment for a wide variety of urinary symptoms and conditions
Your urinary tract removes urine from the body. It comprises the bladder, kidneys, ureter (the tubes connecting your kidneys to your bladder) and urethra, as well as the prostate in men.
A problem in any part of the urinary tract may cause symptoms, some of which can be quite concerning to experience. Common reasons people book a private Urology appointment with us include:
Small changes in diet can relieve certain symptoms. Cutting down on the amount of caffeine and alcohol you drink can also be helpful (for many different health reasons).
Medication such as tablets or antibiotics can be effective at managing recurrent UTIs, an enlarged prostate or erectile dysfunction.
If non-surgical options are not able to provide you with suitable symptom relief, surgery may an option.
A transurethral procedure involves passing a thin tube with a camera (cystoscope) through your urethra and into the bladder. Surgical tools can then be used through the tube, allowing a variety of treatments to be carried out, such as the removal of small stones. If indicated, a biopsy (tissue sample) can be taken for further analysis.
If a bladder tumour is being investigated, a transurethral resection of a bladder tumour (TURBT) can help identify the type of tumour.
Stones in the kidney or renal tract can be removed in several ways. Your Consultant will plan the most appropriate treatment for you.
In men, surgery can be carried out to alter the size of the prostate to allow urine to flow more freely. A common operation to achieve this is a trans-urethral resection of the prostate (TURP).
Treatment will often be conservative (non-surgical) at first, with surgery being used if you don’t get suitable relief of your symptoms. For some conditions, surgery will be the first choice of treatment.
If you would appreciate expert treatment advice for your condition, why not book a private appointment with one of our experienced Consultants today? They would be delighted to help you.
PLEASE NOTE: While some of these treatments are available on-site at The Cavell Hospital, others will be arranged at our sister site, The Kings Oak Hospital. More advanced or complex treatments may be carried out another site, and this will be arranged for you by your Consultant where required.
Your consultant may perform a physical examination, and there are further investigations that may be helpful to arrange.
Blood tests may be requested to check for signs of infection or inflammation which may be causing your symptoms.
A urine test can show up certain conditions or diseases.
A urine Flow Rate test measures the speed and volume of urine passed, while a cystoscope can help check for blockages. (If a small stone is discovered to be the cause of the blockage, it may sometimes be possible to remove it at the same time. If the stone is too big for this, appropriate surgery can be planned.)
Ultrasound scans of the prostate, bladder or kidney can also be helpful for some conditions and symptoms, while CT and MRI scans are useful in some cases.
Once a diagnosis has been made, a treatment plan will be formulated and discussed with you. If you have any questions or concerns, your Consultant will be very happy to discuss these with you during your private appointment.
We treat private medical insurance and self-pay patients, and you can self-refer to avoid delay.
