Technical advantages


Minimally invasive treatment of urinary calculus

The rate of minimally invasive treatment of calculus in the kidneys, ureters, and bladder has reached more than 99%. PCNL, flexible ureteroscopy and other technologies have been advanced in China, and more patients can avoid the pain of open surgery. In recent years, ultra-micro and ultra-fine PCNL, calculus removal systems, and stone ejectment systems have also been introduced to provide patients with more treatment options. Combined with the calculus analysis system, it provides a reference for patients to improve their diet and living habits after surgery and reduce the rate of calculus recurrence.



Transurethral surgery for benign prostatic hyperplasia

It has advanced equipment such as a new generation of Olympus electronic laparoscope and Storz high-definition laparoscope. Laparoscopic surgeries that have been carried out include: Cyst of Kinney removal and decompression, ureterectomy and lithotripsy, ureteral stenosis resection and plasty, adrenal tumor resection, partial nephrectomy, radical nephrectomy, pyeloplasty, radical prostatectomy, Total cystectomy, posterior peritoneal lymph node dissection and other operations have achieved very good clinical results, and they are the key guarantee and continuous development projects of urology.
