Apollo Adlux Urology Services

Urology is one of the earliest clinical speciality to diversify from the general practice as evidenced by the writings of the early Greeks. Long has gone the times when Urologists used crude methods for diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Our Urology department equipped with the state-of-art equipment is one of the advanced centres of Urology in the state. But what make us unique is not the machines. It is the concept of care that we are about to introduce with a human touch. How many of us know that Urology is subspecialising into various domains like Uro-oncology for Cancer in the Urinary tract, Men’s Health Services (consisting to men’s sexual problems, urinary obstruction and bladder related diseases, infertility treatment), Stone Clinics, Female Urology for women with incontinence and urinary infections and Neurourology for the treatment and rehabilitation of Nerve related urinary symptoms.
