Urology

Our extensive urology divisions at Medicana Health Group are committed to giving our patients the best possible care. Our skilled urologists are experts at identifying and treating diseases of the male reproductive system and bladder, ureters, kidneys, and urethra.

Our state-of-the-art facilities and cutting-edge technology allow us to offer the most successful treatments available. Our team of professionals is available to assist you whether you need care for a straightforward ailment like urinary incontinence or an enlarged prostate or a more complicated one like kidney stones or bladder cancer.

Several urological problems can be identified and treated by the urology departments at Medicana Health Group facilities. A list of some of the services we provide to our patients is provided below:

1. Diagnostic services

Our urologists at Medicana Health Group's urology departments use the most up-to-date diagnostic methods to precisely detect various disorders relating to the male reproductive and urinary systems. Our urology departments provide a variety of diagnostic services, including:

  • Physical examination: To identify the underlying cause of a patient's symptoms, a complete physical examination, together with a detailed medical history, is performed.
  • Laboratory tests:Urologists may employ laboratory tests to identify illnesses such as urinary tract infections, STDs, and problems with the prostate.
  • Imaging tests: To get a close-up view of the male reproductive and urinary systems, our urologists may employ imaging tests such as ultrasound, CT scans, and MRI.
  • Urodynamic tests: A series of tests used to assess the bladder's and the urinary system's performance. Testing like this can aid in the diagnosis of diseases like overactive bladder, urine retention, and incontinence. Tests can assess the bladder's nerve and muscular control and the pressure and flow of the pee.
  • Biopsy: During a biopsy, a small tissue sample is removed from the urinary system and examined under a microscope. This examination can aid in the diagnosis of illnesses such as kidney tumors, prostate cancer, and bladder cancer. Under local anesthesia, the biopsy sample can be obtained either manually or by a cystoscopy procedure.


The urology departments of Medicana Health Group are equipped to offer patients precise and prompt diagnoses, which are crucial for efficient treatment and recovery. These departments also have access to the most up-to-date diagnostic tools.

2. Treatment of Urological Conditions

For a variety of urological diseases, we provide a wide range of therapies at our urology units, including:

A. Medical Management

To treat urological disorders, medical management refers to the use of drugs and other non-invasive methods. Our highly trained urologists at Medicana Health Group's urology departments use the newest technologies to provide safe and efficient medical therapy for various urological problems. Some of the treatments available are:

  • Prescription drugs: Our urologists may recommend prescription drugs to treat urine incontinence, overactive bladder, and prostate issues, among other disorders.
  • Bladder Retraining: This behavioral therapy aims to retrain the bladder to hold more urine and lessen the number of times you need to use the restroom.
  • Neuromodulation: This minimally invasive technique improves bladder function and reduces urine incontinence through electrical stimulation.
  • Infusion Therapy: This procedure includes injecting a drug into the bladder to aid with the symptoms of urine incontinence and hyperactive bladder.
  • Lifestyle Adjustments: To treat urological issues, our urologists may also advise making lifestyle changes, such as altering one's hydration and dietary habits, losing weight, and engaging the pelvic floor muscles.


B. Endourology

Endourology is a subspecialty of urology concentrating on endoscopic minimally invasive treatment of urological problems. Instead of open surgery, endourology uses specialized tools and technologies to identify and treat urologic problems through tiny incisions or natural openings in the body, like the urethra.

Our endourology specialists at Medicana's Urology departments are highly skilled and experienced in carrying out a variety of endoscopic treatments, such as:

  • Ureteroscopy: An endourologic procedure used to identify and treat ureteral and bladder problems. Large kidney stones can be treated with the minimally invasive treatment known as percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL).

Benign prostatic hyperplasia is treated using holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP), a minimally invasive technique (BPH).

  • Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP):This minimally invasive technique is used to treat prostate cancer and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).


An Endourologic procedure for treating urethral obstructions or narrowings is known as urethral stricture therapy..

Each patient receives individualized care from our endourology specialists tailored to their requirements and current state of health. By applying the most recent endourologic procedures and technologies, we can provide patients with effective, minimally invasive therapies with better outcomes, less pain, and shorter recovery times.

C. Reconstructive Urology

Reconstructive urology is a specialization that surgically corrects congenital or acquired urologic defects and injuries. Our qualified and experienced urologists at Medicana Health Group's urology divisions provide thorough reconstructive urologic surgeries to restore normal urologic function, enhance quality of life, and prevent or cure related medical disorders.

At our urology units, we provide reconstructive urologic surgeries like:

  • Urethroplasty:In this surgery, the urethra—the tube that conducts urine from the bladder to the outside of the body—is repaired or rebuilt. Treatments for urethral strictures, incontinence, and urethral injuries frequently involve urethroplasty.
  • Pyeloplasty: Pyeloplasty is a surgical treatment for ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) blockage, a congenital disease. This disorder develops when the ureter, which transports urine from the kidney to the bladder, becomes blocked near the kidney, potentially causing renal damage due to the buildup of urine.
  • Bladder Reconstruction: A damaged or atypical bladder may be repaired, or a new bladder may be created using tissue from another body area. Treatments for bladder exstrophy, neurogenic bladder, and bladder cancer frequently involve this operation.
  • Renal Transplantation: Renal transplantation is a surgical operation in which a recipient is given a healthy donor kidney. The technique is used to treat kidney failure, also known as end-stage renal disease, in which the kidneys can no longer perform their normal functions.
  • Male Genital Reconstruction: A reconstructive urologic operation used to treat congenital or acquired defects of the male genitalia is known as male genital reconstruction. This could involve operations like scrotal reconstruction, penile reconstruction, and hypospadias correction.


D. Laparoscopic Urology

A laparoscope, a short tube containing a camera and light source, is used to view and treat urological disorders during laparoscopic urology, a minimally invasive surgical procedure. Compared to conventional open operations, this method has fewer scars, smaller incisions, less pain, and faster recovery times.

Laparoscopic urology operations are available at the Urology units of Medicana Health Group. These include laparoscopic pyeloplasty, laparoscopic nephrectomy, laparoscopic adrenalectomy, and laparoscopic partial nephrectomy. Our urologists are committed to giving their patients the finest standard of treatment and have a great deal of experience treating various urological diseases laparoscopically.

We ensure that our patients receive the best care for their urological issues by integrating cutting-edge technology with the knowledge of our urologists. Whether you're a local patient, an international patient, a tourist, or an expat in Turkey, you can rely on our urology units to provide you with the best care possible and a tailored course of treatment.

E. Robotics

Robotic surgery, a subset of minimally invasive surgery, uses cutting-edge technology to enhance control, dexterity, and precision during treatments. Robotics are utilized in urology for a wide range of operations, including the treatment of diseases like prostate, kidney, and bladder cancer.

  • Precision: Robotics in urology can perform highly accurate motions, which is one of its main advantages. Using robotics technology during surgical procedures allows for greater control and accuracy, reducing the risk of complications and improving outcomes.
  • Dexterity: Robotics in urology also enhances surgical dexterity. Surgeons can more efficiently and accurately access hard-to-reach places when using robotic arms. As a result, patients may receive more effective therapies and recover more quickly.
  • Control: Robotics in urology also gives the physician more control during surgeries. With cutting-edge technology, surgeons may see the surgical field in real-time, enabling them to make better decisions and modify their approaches while performing the treatment.
  • Less Invasiveness: Robotics in urology can also assist in making some operations less invasive. Less invasive procedures and smaller incisions allow quicker healing and a lower risk of patient problems..
  • Improved Results: Last but not least, robotics in urology has been demonstrated to improve patients' results and recovery times. Greater precision, dexterity, and control during procedures allow for better results and faster recovery.


Our urology departments at Medicana Health Group use the most advanced robotic technology to give patients the best possible care. Our team of skilled urologists and support personnel is dedicated to helping patients achieve the most outstanding results from their operations.

3. Minimally Invasive Procedures

"minimally invasive procedures" refer to surgical methods that limit incision sizes, lessen tissue damage, and hasten healing. We provide a wide range of minimally invasive procedures at our urology units to address different urological diseases, such as:

  • Endoscopic procedures - During these procedures, specialized tools and a tiny camera known as an endoscope are used to view the body's interior. Compared to open surgery, these techniques are less intrusive and carry a lower risk of consequences. Examples of endoscopic procedures include percutaneous nephrolithotomy, cystoscopy, and ureteroscopy.
  • Laparoscopic procedures - Specialized instruments are used to perform laparoscopic procedures through small incisions. They need shorter recovery time, are less painful, and leave fewer scars than typical open surgery. Laparoscopic nephrectomy and laparoscopic pyeloplasty are two instances of laparoscopic operations.


Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a mechanical device to carry out complex procedures more accurately and precisely. Our urology facilities use modern automated devices, including the Da Vinci surgical system, to perform treatments like robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy and robotic-assisted partial nephrectomy.

Our urologists are highly skilled and experienced in performing minimally invasive procedures in our urology departments. They collaborate closely with other specialists and support workers to ensure patients receive the best care and results.

4. Kidney and Bladder Cancer Treatment

The Medicana Health Group's urology departments are set up to treat patients with kidney and bladder cancer, two of the most prevalent types of urologic cancer, at the highest level possible. To correctly identify and stage these tumors, our group of skilled urologists uses the most recent diagnostic methods, such as imaging tests, biopsies, and endoscopic procedures. Our doctors create a personalized treatment plan based on the findings of these tests, which may combine medicinal, surgical, and minimally invasive procedures.

To stop the growth and spread of cancer, doctors may utilize drugs like chemotherapy and immunotherapy in the medical management of kidney and bladder cancer. Our urology units offer a variety of minimally invasive methods, such as laparoscopic and robotic surgeries, for patients who need surgery. These procedures include smaller incisions, less pain, and quicker recovery than conventional open surgeries. Following cancer treatment, our urologists also carry out reconstructive urology treatments like bladder reconstruction to help the bladder and urinary tract function normally once again.

Medicana Health Group is dedicated to giving patients the best care and support possible as they battle cancer. For patients with kidney and bladder cancer, our urology units provide comprehensive and individualized care, including routine monitoring and follow-up visits to ensure the cancer is under control and to detect and treat any potential recurrence.

5. Urinary Incontinence Treatment

The involuntary loss of urine is a common symptom of urinary incontinence. Numerous things, such as weak pelvic muscles, nerve injury, and particular medical disorders, can contribute to it. Our urology units provide thorough treatments for urine incontinence that aim to give patients back control over their bladders and enhance their quality of life. Each patient receives a customized treatment plan from our team of professionals that considers their unique needs and objectives.

We provide a variety of treatments for urinary incontinence, including the following:

  • Medication: We may prescribe medication to relax the bladder and lessen frequent and urgent urination.
  • Kegel exercises: also known as pelvic floor exercises, can help strengthen the muscles that support the bladder and improve bladder control.
  • Bladder retraining: This technique aims to reestablish bladder control by progressively extending the intervals between bathroom visits and decreasing the frequency of daily trips..
  • Biofeedback: This method teaches patients to control their bladder muscles using specialized sensors and equipment.
  • Surgery: Occasionally, surgery is required to address the underlying cause of urine incontinence. Our physicians have received extensive training in robotics and minimally invasive techniques, which can speed healing and lessen scarring.

Our urology units can assist if you are having urinary incontinence problems. Our team of specialists is committed to providing you with the best care and most cutting-edge procedures to help you restore bladder control and enhance your quality of life.

6. Erectile Dysfunction Treatment

The inability to obtain or sustain an erection during sexual activity is the hallmark of erectile dysfunction (ED), a frequent ailment in males. At Medicana Health Group, we provide thorough and efficient ED treatment solutions through our urology departments.

Our urologists have extensive training and experience in the most recent ED procedures and treatments, such as:

  • Medications: Sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis), and vardenafil (Levitra) pills are frequently used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). These drugs act by boosting blood flow to the penis, which causes an erection.
  • Vacuum Erection Devices (VED): A VED is an over-the-penis plastic cylinder that employs suction to produce an erection. For men who are unable to take oral drugs or who have other medical issues that make their use contraindicated, this is a non-invasive and effective alternative.
  • Intraurethral Suppositories: An erection is produced by inserting a small pellet of medication into the urethra, which in turn stimulates blood flow to the penis.
  • Penile Injections: To induce an erection, medication is directly administered to the penis.
  • Penile Implants: One surgical treatment for ED is a penile implant. This entails surgically inserting an inflated or semi-rigid device to enable an erection inside the penis.


At Medicana, we know the harmful effects ED may have on a man's life and strive to offer every patient the most efficient and individualized course of treatment. If you have ED, contact us to arrange a consultation with one of our urologists.

7. Male Infertility Treatment

Male infertility is a widespread issue that affects a large percentage of guys. Hormonal dysregulation, structural issues, and environmental influences are just a few causes. The Urology departments at Medicana Health Group are operated by highly qualified specialists and furnished with the most recent medical equipment to offer comprehensive therapy for male infertility.

In our urology departments, a thorough assessment is performed to identify the underlying cause of infertility and choose the most appropriate course of action. After a complete medical history and physical examination, laboratory testing and diagnostic techniques such as semen analysis, scrotal ultrasonography, and hormone profiles are conducted.

Our specialists create a treatment plan specifically suited to each patient's needs based on the findings of these evaluations. Male infertility is frequently treated with medicine to increase sperm quantity and quality, surgery to rectify structural issues, and assisted reproductive technologies like in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Our urology departments at Medicana Health Group are staffed by knowledgeable and sympathetic doctors committed to giving our patients the best possible care and assistance. We are dedicated to helping our patients achieve their goal of beginning a family because we are aware of the mental and physical difficulties that come with infertility.
