Urology Overview

The SGH Urology Centre provides a whole range of comprehensive and efficient services for the management of urological problems.

With our complete range of state-of-the-art facilities, the Centre performs minimally invasive procedures such as extracoporeal shockwave lithotripsy for treatment of urinary stones, transrectal ultrasound and biopsy of the prostate and urodynamics study of the urinary tract.

Located at Block 4 Level 1, the Urology Centre is staffed by Urologists with a broad range of experience in the fields of shockwave lithotripsy, endourology, laser surgery, uro-oncology, female urology, andrology, reconstructive urology and renal transplantation.

Specialty clinics are organized into:

  1. Female urology and incontinence
  2. Prostate disease
  3. Urinary stone disease
  4. Uro-oncology
  5. Male infertility and andrology
  6. Renal transplantation and dialysis access
  7. Reconstructive urology

    The centre adopts a team management approach whereby any individual patient will be managed by more than one urologist. This ensures that our patients get the most comprehensive and appropriate care available.

Uro-oncology

In addition to prostate cancer, the centre also provides screening, staging and treatment for other urologic malignancies such as renal, ureteric, bladder, testicular and penile malignancies.

Following major, curative, extirpative surgeries, body image enhancing reconstructive options are available to minimize the emotional impact on the patients.

Prostate Disease

The centre offers a one-stop evaluation and treatment facility for benign and cancerous prostate diseases. These services include prostate scans, ultrasound guided prostate biopsies, prostate specific antigen tests, urodynamic studies of the bladder and prostate and flexible cystoscopy.

Non-surgical and surgical treatment options for benign and malignant prostate conditions are individually tailored for the patients.

Female Urology and Incontinence

We have a trained Continence Nurse Advisor who provides counseling and education on the practical management of urinary incontinence. Every patient is carefully assessed and the treatment plan is then tailored to meet the needs of the patients and their caregivers.

The centre is equipped with state-of-the-art urodynamic testing facilities to assess incontinence problems in women. Our treatment modalities include medical therapy, bladder rehabilitation and various surgical options such as tension free vaginal tape, colposuspension, collagen injection, slings and artificial urinary sphincters.

Urinary Stones

The centre is equipped with the complete range of stone treatment modalities. These include the most sophisticated non-invasive and minimally invasive techniques such as shockwave, laser, lithoclast and percutaneous nephro-lithotripsy

Transplantation and Dialysis access

Our Urologists work closely with the nephrologists to provide a renal transplantation service for patients with end-stage renal failure. We perform most of the renal transplants in Singapore. In addition, we also provide a dialysis access service. This includes the creation of vascular fistulae and grafts and the insertion of peritoneal catheters for patients on haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.

Infertility and Andrology

The centre provides a thorough evaluation of male infertility problems. Treatment may involve microsurgical techniques to correct congenital defects and to reverse prior vasectomies. Harvesting of sperms for in-vitro fertilization is also performed.

Erectile Dysfunction

We work with patients to search for solutions to their complex problem. Treatment options include oral medications, injection therapy, vacuum devices and surgical implants.

Urinary tract infection

We provide a complete urological evaluation for male and female patients with complicated or recurrent urinary tract infections. Specific treatment is then tailored for the individual patient.

Reconstructive Urology

We provide reconstructive surgery for various congenital and acquired urological malformations. These complex, reconstructive procedures include neo-bladder formation, ileal conduit creation and urethroplasty.
