It has been performing radical surgery for bladder, prostate, kidney, penile, testicular cancer etc. and endoscopic surgery like TURP, TURBT. Recently the department conducted survivor meet on September 6th, 2017 for patients who had undergone surgery. It was a huge success in respect to patient care and interaction between patients.

During 2074, seventeen radical nephrectomy were performed for kidney  cancer with 8 partial  nephron sparing surgery for small kidney masses. There were 8 patients who  underwent  radical  cysto-prostatectomy (RCP) with 4 neo-bladder for  Urinary  Bladder  cancer. Four patients underwent  radical  prostatectomy  for prostate cancer. Apart from these couple of patients had penectomy with ILNO for penile cancers. Uro-oncology department is also devoted in promoting surgeries lik e TURP for enlarged prostate and TURBT fo r bladder cancer. We w ill soon be adding bipolar TURP/T URBT and laser surgery, which w ill definitely increase efficiency and standard care as a complete package in Urology at NCHRC.
