When a man has an enlarged prostate or prostate cancer, he may need a prostatectomy for treatment. Depending on the condition and its severity, Hunt Regional urologic surgeons may resort to open surgery or GreenLight™ Laser surgery. Prostate laser surgery tends to be less invasive than open surgery, because it uses a scope and a small incision rather than a large incision.
Bladder surgery is used to fix conditions like bladder prolapse and bladder cancer. Kidney surgery can be used to eliminate kidney stones and treat kidney cancer or other kidney problems.
Urinary incontinence is when a person has accidental or involuntary loss of urine from the bladder. It’s the type of condition that can impact daily life and cause major stress and anxiety. Incontinence can range from minor leakage to total loss of the bladder’s contents, but incontinence surgery can be used to fix the problem.
When the bladder sags out of its normal position in the body, it can cause incontinence or other health problems. Bladder suspension, also called bladder neck suspension, is the surgical procedure used to treat this condition.
Urinary problems can get in the way of everyday life, so treatment is essential. Just remember that Hunt Regional Medical Center is here for you every step of the way throughout your surgery and recovery.
