Reconstructive urology is used to restore urinary, sexual, and reproductive functions in patients who have had congenital conditions or urethral strictures. It is a highly specialized field of male urology. It also brings back the functions to the genitourinary tract.

The reconstructive urology procedures include – pyeloplasty, ureteric re-implant, hypospadias repair, bladder exstrophy repair, bladder augmentation, bladder neck repair, circumcision, and orchiopexy.

Pyeloplasty

It is the surgical reconstruction of the renal pelvis. The renal pelvis is a part of the kidney. Pyeloplasty is done to drain and decompress the kidney. Almost all cases are to relieve a ureteropelvic junction obstruction or shortly known as UPJ obstruction. Just the tissues where the ureter is obstructed is cut, and the original ureter is repositioned and attached back to the healthy renal pelvic tissue above.

Ureteric re-implant

Ureteric re-implant is generally used to treat the refluxes. This surgery aims to fix the tubes that connect the kidneys to the bladder. Ureteric re-implant creates a position change for the tubes at the point where they join the bladder to stop urine from backing up into the kidneys
