About the Department
Private Akdeniz Hospital Urology Department provides urological diagnosis and treatment services to both adult and pediatric patients. While providing these services, our main goal is to apply clinical experiences based on scientific foundations.
In today's urology, it is a sub-unit aiming at the diagnosis and treatment of urine storage and discharge problems. Sexual dysfunction, which is often observed with urination problems, is also one of the subjects of functional urology.
Urodynamic unit (urine flow rate, cystometry, EMG, pressure-flow studies) provides detailed examination of problems related to urinary incontinence and urination.
In particular, patients with lower urinary system symptoms (difficult urination, frequent urination, urgency, urinary incontinence…) and neurogenic bladder (spinal cord trauma, multiple sclerosis, myelodysplasia, etc.) are planned to be treated and followed-up after urodynamic evaluation, if necessary.
Benign enlargement of the prostate (BPH) most commonly affects the lower urinary tract in male patients. After the urination problems due to BPH are evaluated in detail, current drug and surgical treatment methods (TUR bipolar, Greenlight Laser XPS) are applied.
The most common complaints of the lower urinary system in Female Urology are the feeling of urgency and urinary incontinence.
In the treatment of stress urinary incontinence, in addition to medical and surgical methods (TOT, TVT….), laser therapy is applied for patients with mild and moderate complaints.
Botulinum toxin injection into the bladder and neuromodulation treatments are performed in addition to drug treatments for diseases such as overactive bladder – OAB (squeeze feeling and/or urge urinary incontinence), Bladder Pain Syndrome / Interstitial cystitis.
Pelvic organ prolapse treatment is applied with open or laparoscopic (uterine protective sacrocolpopexy) methods.

– Retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) is performed with laser (Holmium 30 W. Dornier)
– Percutaneous kidney stone surgery – (PCNL) is performed.
Prostate biopsy applied in the diagnosis of prostate cancer is performed using a transrectal biplane probe, using the transperineal method under sedation. With this method, the risk of infection is minimized.
