Ureteroscopy (URS) Therapeutic

Trans Urethral Ureteroscopy (URS) Therapeutic is a minimally invasive procedure used to diagnose and treat various conditions in the ureter and kidneys. It involves the use of a specialized instrument called a ureteroscope, which is inserted through the urethra and guided into the urinary tract to visualize and treat abnormalities.

Who Needs Trans Ureteroscopy (URS) Therapeutic:

Trans Ureteroscopy (URS) Therapeutic may be recommended for individuals who have:

  • Kidney stones: URS can be used to remove or break down kidney stones that are causing symptoms, blockages, or recurrent urinary tract infections.
  • Ureteral strictures: URS can help in widening narrowed areas in the ureter to improve urine flow.
  • Tumors or growths: URS can be used for the biopsy or removal of tumors or abnormal growths in the urinary tract.
  • Urinary tract obstruction: URS can address blockages or strictures in the ureter or renal pelvis that are causing urine backup and kidney problems.

When to See a Specialist:

You should consider seeing a specialist for Trans Ureteroscopy (URS) Therapeutic if you experience:

  • Recurrent urinary tract infections
  • Blood in the urine
  • Severe pain in the back, side, or lower abdomen
  • Difficulty passing urine
  • Unexplained kidney problems or decreased kidney function



  • Anesthesia: You will be given either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
  • Insertion of the ureteroscope: The urologist will gently insert the ureteroscope through the urethra and into the bladder. Then, it will be advanced up into the ureter and possibly into the kidney.
  • Visualization and treatment: Using the ureteroscope’s camera, the urologist will visualize the urinary tract and identify any abnormalities such as stones, strictures, or tumors. They may use laser energy or specialized instruments to break down or remove kidney stones, dilate strictures, or biopsy/treat tumors.
  • Stent placement (if necessary): In some cases, a small tube called a stent may be placed in the ureter to help promote healing and ensure proper urine flow.

Road to Recovery:

After Trans Ureteroscopy (URS) Therapeutic, you can expect the following:

  • Hospital stay: In most cases, URS is performed as an outpatient procedure, and you can return home the same day. However, in certain circumstances, an overnight hospital stay may be required.
  • Recovery time: Recovery time varies depending on the extent of the procedure and individual factors. Most people can resume normal activities within a few days, but it may take a week or two for complete recovery.
  • Follow-up care: Your urologist will provide specific instructions on post-operative care, including any dietary restrictions, medication usage, and follow-up appointments.

Risk Management:

While Ureteroscopy (URS) Therapeutic is generally safe, there are potential risks and complications, including:

  • Bleeding: Some blood in the urine is common after the procedure, but excessive bleeding may require medical attention.
  • Infection: There is a slight risk of urinary tract infection following URS. Taking prescribed antibiotics and maintaining good hygiene can help minimize this risk.
  • Perforation: Rarely, the ureter or bladder may be punctured during the procedure, requiring additional treatment or surgery.

Benefits of Ureteroscopy (URS) Therapeutic:

  • Minimally invasive: Ureteroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure, which means it involves smaller incisions or no incisions at all compared to traditional open surgery. This results in less pain, faster recovery, and reduced risk of complications.
  • Precise diagnosis and treatment: Ureteroscopy allows for direct visualization of the urinary tract, providing accurate diagnosis of conditions such as kidney stones, tumors, or strictures. It also enables targeted treatment of these conditions during the same procedure.
  • High success rate: Ureteroscopy has a high success rate in treating kidney stones and other urinary tract abnormalities. It effectively removes or breaks down stones, dilates strictures, and biopsies or removes tumors, leading to symptom relief and improved urinary function.
  • Short recovery time: Compared to open surgery, the recovery time after Ureteroscopy (URS) Therapeutic is relatively short. Most patients can resume their normal activities within a few days to a week, depending on the complexity of the procedure and individual healing.
  • Reduced risk of complications: With its minimally invasive nature, Ureteroscopy carries a lower risk of complications compared to open surgery. The risk of infection, bleeding, and damage to surrounding tissues is minimized, leading to a safer treatment option.


Frequently Asked Questions

1. Is Ureteroscopy painful?

Ureteroscopy is performed under anesthesia, so you will not experience pain during the procedure. However, some discomfort or mild pain may be felt during the recovery period, which can be managed with prescribed pain medications.

2. How long does the Ureteroscopy procedure take?

The duration of the Ureteroscopy procedure can vary depending on the complexity of the condition being treated. On average, it takes around 30 minutes to 1 hour. However, in certain cases with multiple stones or complex conditions, it may take longer.

3. What are the possible complications of Ureteroscopy?

While Ureteroscopy is generally safe, there are some potential complications, including bleeding, infection, injury to the urinary tract, or blockage of the ureter. However, these complications are rare and can be minimized with proper technique and post-operative care.

4. Will I need a stent after Ureteroscopy?

In some cases, a temporary stent may be placed in the ureter to promote healing and prevent blockage. The stent is usually removed a few days to weeks after the procedure.

5. Can Ureteroscopy treat all types of kidney stones?

Ureteroscopy is highly effective in treating most types of kidney stones, including small stones, larger stones, and even complex stones. However, the urologist will assess the specific characteristics of your stones to determine the most appropriate treatment approach.
