Cystodistension

A procedure where a cystoscope (a narrow telescope) is passed through the urethra (the tube that takes urine from the bladder to the outside of the body) into the bladder. The bladder is then filled with water causing it to stretch. This is usually done to aid diagnosis for patients with painful bladder syndrome.

Available for Self Pay Cystoscopy

A procedure used to examine and diagnose problems with the bladder. A cystoscope is inserted into the urethra and moved up into the bladder. The camera on the cystoscope relays images to a screen where they can be viewed by a specialist.

Available for Self Pay Excision of epididymal cyst

The epididymis is a small organ over the back of each testicle where sperm are stored. A cyst can develop in this area and enlarge with fluid, becoming uncomfortable. The cyst can be removed during surgery under general anaesthetic.

Available for Self Pay Frenuloplasty

This is an operation to release a fold of skin on the underside of the penis in order to prevent pain and discomfort during intercourse.

Hydrocelectomy

This operation removes fluid that collects around a testicle, called a hydrocele. Most hydroceles are harmless and only need treatment if they become uncomfortable.

Meatoplasty

The surgical altering of the urethral opening to enlarge it.

Prepucioplasty

A plastic surgical operation on the foreskin of the penis to widen a narrow, non-retracting foreskin.

Scrotal surgery

Scrotal surgery can include a range of surgical procedures to correct various conditions, including the removal of hydroceles (fluid pouches around the testicle), epididymal cysts and can be used to repair varicose veins around the testicle.

Available for Self Pay Trans urethral resection of prostate (TURP)

This surgical procedure involves cutting away a section of the prostate gland in order to treat prostate enlargement. A TURP is usually performed using a spinal anaesthetic (epidural).

Urethral dilatation

A procedure that involves the gentle stretching of the urethra, the tube through which you pass urine. A thin plastic rod is passed into the urethra either under local or general anaesthetic. Rods of increasing thickness are gently inserted to gradually widen the stricture.

Available for Self Pay Vasectomy

The severance of the small tubes (vas deferens) carrying sperm from the epididymis to the penis, resulting in sterility.
