Introduction to the Department

The Urology Department can be said to be handling a special surgery area that involves diagnosing various diseases, such as those afflicting the urinary-tract-system organs (kidney, ureter, urinary bladder, urethra); male-reproduction-related diseases afflicting the male penis, testis, spermatic duct, and prostate; and female urinary incontinence and sexual dysfunction, and treating the disease mainly using surgical methods.

The representative diseases dealt with by the Urology Department include prostate cancer, which has recently shown the highest increase rate among the various kinds of cancer in South Korea, along with urinary-system tumors such as bladder cancer and renal cell carcinoma; prostatic diseases, which are common among middle-aged or older men (prostatic hypertrophy, prostatitis); urolithiasis and female urinary incontinence, whose number of cases has been on the rise of late; and various kinds of dysuria, urinary-tract infection, male sexual dysfunction, congenital urinary-system malformation, urinary-system trauma, male infertility, etc.

The department is carrying out specialized diagnoses and treatments as well as researches on urinary-system diseases requiring surgical treatments, and is doing its best to maintain the highest level of excellence in South Korea with regard to the treatments of prostate cancer and various kinds of urinary-system tumors, which are rapidly spreading due to the aging of the population.

In particular, this department recently introduced the laparoscope surgery method, which involves minimum incisions; hence, the excellent aesthetic effects and fast recovery after surgery, and the minimization of complications. For prostatic diseases, etc., this department introduced laser endoscope surgery equipment that improved endoscopic surgeries by one notch, thereby taking the lead in advancing urological-surgery methods in South Korea.

Treatments & Services

This department is equipped with the best and newest equipment in South Korea, such as laparoscopic- surgery equipment, laser prostate surgery equipment, urodynamic-study devices for the diagnoses of dysuria, magnetic-field chair for the treatment of urinary-incontinence patients, urinary-incontinence treatment devices such as the bio feedback and electrostimulation treatment device, ultrasonography devices, extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy machines, and various kinds of endoscopy devices.
