Bladder and urethra surgery
Surgery for urethral stricture
Urination problems do not always originate from the prostate. Sometimes, a narrowed urethra may be responsible. After diagnostic testing, the urethra can now be dialated using minimally invasive procedures.
The surgery takes about an hour and is performed under general anesthesia or cross-stitch. The average hospital stay is about 2 days. A catheter is inserted during the operation and is usually removed the day after the surgery.
