Reconstructive urology is a specialized field in urology which focuses on restoring both the structure and functions of the genitourinary tract. Some of the conditions which can necessitate reconstructive surgery are prostate procedures, full or partial hysterectomies, trauma such as industrial accidents, straddle injuries, etc. urethral strictures and sometimes childbirth.

Surgeons should have extensive expertise in performing complex reconstructive surgery on the kidney, ureter, bladder, urethra and male genitals. Some of the common reconstructive surgery procedures include:

  • Urethral disruption injuries caused by fractured pelvis
  • Recto-urinary fistulas following prostatectomy or pelvic surgery
  • Refractory male urethral strictures and radiation-induced urinary fistulas
  • Major bladder reconstruction
  • Major ureter reconstruction
  • Vesicovaginal or ureterovaginal fistulas after pelvic surgery
