Urogenital surgery may be necessary for a number of conditions, including:
Depending on the procedure, surgery may be undertaken using local or general anaesthesia, using a variety of surgical techniques.
We are pleased to admit patients for elective and emergency surgery relating to the urinary tract, such as removal of cystic calculi and repair of ruptured bladders in foals. Cystic calculus removal in geldings is facilitated by a laparoscopic approach to the bladder under general anaesthesia. This allows the calculus to be removed by a much smaller incision in the abdomen thus reducing post operative complications. Tumours of the penis may respond to conservative laser surgery or in more advanced cases they can be managed by penile amputation, with excellent results.
