Urology

 

Introduction

The Urology service provides specialist inpatient and outpatient services to patients who have conditions of the male reproductive organs, kidneys, bladder and urinary tract. The urology team provides specialist care to patients requiring surgical and non-surgical treatment. A Urology Nurse Specialist also forms part of the team providing advice and support to patients who have complex conditions.

 

An acute service for emergencies is provided 24 hours day and non-urgent services are accepted from general practitioners according to access criteria which assists to prioritise urgency of the referral.

 

Mobile surgery on the lithotripsy bus is conducted at Dunedin Hospital for patients with kidney stones.
