Patients of both sexes with disorders of the urogenital tract are cared for at urology departments of our best clinics. Our specialists are confronted daily with disorders due to cancer, male and female incontinence, stone ailments, infertility and impotence, to name only a few. Understanding and discreet discussions and counseling are particularly important in this specialty.
The primary objective of urology in Switzerland is to maintain, as far as possible, the quality of life through the use of minimally invasive procedures. A variety of specialised methods are used to diagnose urological disorders, such as urine analysis, and use of ultrasound, computer tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). When an operative procedure becomes necessary, the efforts are directed towards use of surgical techniques that spare the tissue and prevent blood loss. The most modern operative (da Vinci technology, laser) and diagnostic technologies support such practices. As a result, pain is reduced and rehabilitation phase is shortened. The high standard of technology can also mean significantly lower uncertainty for the patients. Utmost humane care and extensive patient education are granted for urologists in our clinics.
If you have cause for concern about the state of your urological system, a good start to solving the problem is the urological examination.
