Common Procedures

Treatment for Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is a malignant tumour that often begins in the outer part of the prostate. It may spread to the inner parts of the prostate and beyond the prostate to other parts of the body. It is usually curable when detected early, but can kill if diagnosed late or not treated effectively.

Robot-assisted Laparoscopic Radical Prostatectomy (popularly known as da Vinci Robotic Surgery) is one of the major advances in surgery. This minimally invasive procedure is employed for complex, intricate surgery required in urological problems such as prostatectomy, or removal of the prostate gland in prostate cancer.

Treatment for Stress Urinary Incontinence

Stress urinary incontinence is the uncontrollable leakage of urine when you cough, sneeze, laugh, run or lift something heavy. It is caused by weak pelvic floor muscles aggravated by pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause. It is the most common form of urinary incontinence in women with more than 10 – 15% of women suffering from it. Women with this condition will not only be affected socially, financially, physically and emotionally, their work and family life may also suffer as a result.

Treatment for Urinary Stones

Calculi, or more commonly stones, are small hard crystals that occur in fluids in the body such as urine. They are commonly found in the kidney (kidney stones) and the passageway of urine from the kidney to the urinary bladder, or ureter (ureteral stones).

Male Ageing Treatment

Whilst greater focus is placed on menopause in women, male ageing is a condition that is often neglected. Testosterone levels in men tend to decline after 30 years old, at a rate of 1-2% annually. As a result, men above 50 may experience andropause, characterised by symptoms such as reduced energy levels, reduced libido, erectile dysfunction, lack of motivation and sleep disorders. They may also experience fatigue, mood swings and poorer mental function. Specialists in Changi General Hospital, have specially set up a Andropause and Men Health’s Clinic to treat men with ageing problems.
