Treating Conditions of the Urinary Tract
Urology services at MultiCare Deaconess Hospital focus on the urinary tract, including the bladder and kidneys, of both men and women, as well as the male reproductive organs.
- Brachytherapy (Radioactive seed implantation) is the temporary or permanent implantation of radioactive seeds to kill cancer. It is often used in the treatment of prostate cancer.
- Diagnostic Testing for urinary tract disease includes X-rays with and without dye, ultrasound and laboratory tests such as urinalysis or blood tests to determine kidney function.
- Dialysis uses a machine to remove impurities from the blood when the kidneys are not functioning as they should. Deaconess offers acute dialysis for people who are in the hospital for other treatments.
- Greenlight Procedure uses a special laser to remove excess tissue to stop a blockage in the prostate.
- Neobladder Procedure fashions a new bladder to be used for the elimination of urine when cancer or other diseases prevents normal flow through normal channels. This procedure eliminates the need for an external pouch.
- Lithotripsy is the treatment for stones in the kidney and urinary tract. It uses sound waves to break the stones into pieces small enough to pass through the urinary system.
- Surgery, including bladder suspension for leakage, removal of tumors or reduction in the size of the prostate
