In-Patient Services
The Division of Urology is capable of diagnosing and managing all forms of Urologic disease. These include operations for urinary stone disease, enlarged prostate, urinary obstruction, genito-urinary tract infection, infertility and sexual dysfunction. The Division is especially skilled in operations for genito-urinary tumors, both adult and children, benign and malignant. The Division performs major, minor, and endourologic elective operations daily from Monday to Friday. A typical day would mean 3 to 5 major operations with 4 to 8 minor and endourological procedures. Emergency procedures can, of course, be done 24 hours per day, Monday to Sunday.

Aside from the consultant's private clinics for pay patients, the Division holds a regular Out-Patient clinic for service patients. This clinic is conducted four times a week. This consists of the General Urology Clinic which is on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 1 pm to 3 pm local time (GMT 0500 - 0700). This clinic services walk-in (new), follow-up, and post-operative Urologic patients as well as referrals from other specialties and departments.
