Reconstructive urology can also help treat the traumatic injuries that occur to the kidney, bladder, ureter and genitals.

What are the different types of reconstructive urologic procedures?

At BLK, our urologists help patients to restore urinary, sexual and reproductive function by performing various reconstructive urological procedures. Patients who have pelvic trauma, congenital conditions or urethral strictures undergo procedures, such as:

  • Urinary Tract And Genital Reconstruction: in this process highly skilled surgeons who hold expertise in performing surgical reconstruction of the bladder, urethra, ureter, penis, and external genitalia, as well as other less common urogenital disorders.
  • Transition Urology/Congenital: There are conditions where a person might be born with congenital urinary defects and are prone to new challenges that come with transitioning from childhood into adulthood.  At the Center for Reconstructive Urology at BLK, our experts offer seamless urological care throughout childhood, adolescence, and into adulthood.
  • Tissue Transfer Techniques: Consider as one of the essential parts of the reconstructive urologist's armamentarium, these techniques are widely used in the genital and urethral reconstruction. The major techniques include:
  • Grafts for Complicated Urethral Stricture: A graft is a type of tissue that is used to replace the diseased urethral tissue and is moved from a donor site to a recipient site without its native blood supply. The major types of grafts used in urology are: 
    • Full-thickness grafts
    • Split-thickness skin grafts 
    •  Buccal mucosa grafts
  • Flaps Transfer: The process involves the transfer of flaps from the donor site to the recipient site with its native blood supply using a pedicle. The flaps that very commonly used in urology include penile, scrotal skin and preputial. They are classified based on:
    • Blood supply
    • Elevation methods 
    • The method of transfer
