Treatment for Ureteroscopy (URS)
In this procedure, the patient is given general anesthesia. The ureteroscope tip will be inserted into the patient’s urethra by the doctor. When the ureteroscope is in the bladder, a sterile fluid is released via the tip of the scope by the urologist. The bladder is filled so that its walls are easily visible. The doctor directs the scope to a ureter carefully. When there is a problem about a kidney, the scope may be shifted up to the organ carefully. The doctor will then firmly guide the scope to the ureter.
