What is urethroplasty? 

Urethroplasty is a surgical treatment that corrects a defect or injury in the urethra. The urethra is a duct that connects the urinary bladder to the genitals, through which the urine passes during urination.

It is done to either remove or expand a constricted portion of the urethra. Reconstruction of the surrounding tissues may be required as part of the surgery. Urethroplasty is considered the gold standard in the treatment of urethral strictures. In addition, the method lowers the incidence rate and improves the outcomes.


Diagnoses for urethroplasty 

Before urethroplasty in Bhubaneswar, our urologist will ask you to undergo one or more tests, such as:

  • Ultrasound scan
  • Urinalysis
  • Cystoscopy
  • Pelvic ultrasound
  • Retrograde urethrogram

After proper evaluation, Dr. Sumanta Mishra, a urethroplasty surgery specialist in Bhubaneswar, will recommend the type of surgery appropriate for your condition.


What are the different types of urethroplasty surgery in Bhubaneswar?

Surgical procedures vary depending on the cause, location, and length of the stricture. 

Ways in which urethroplasty can be done:


  • Excision and primary anastomosis (EPA)

The first is primary repair, which entails total removal of the constricted urethra. After that, the proximal and distal patent sections are reattached. This procedure is utilized for urethral strictures that are less than 2 cm long. 

  • Graft urethroplasty

The second approach enlarges the restricted segment of the urethra by grafting tissue from the bladder epithelium or buccal mucosa.


  • Staged urethroplasty

A staged urethroplasty is usually for patients with failed urethroplasty or who have extensive scarring on the urethra and nearby skin. The surgeon will remove the damaged urethra and implant a skin graft in its place. Over the next few months, the replacement urethra will be left open to the air to recover. After the graft has healed and become soft, the patient will have a second surgery to reconstruct the urethra by rolling it up into a tube. The most severe urethral strictures are usually treated by staged urethroplasty.


When do you require urethroplasty?

You may need surgery if you have urethral stricture due to:

  • Scarring from a prior procedure
  • Recurrent urethritis
  • Benign prostatic hyperplasia
  • Pressure from tumor
  • Trauma to the pelvic region

How long will recovery take?

The period of recovery is highly dependent on the type of surgery performed. After urethroplasty in Bhubaneswar, most patients will spend the night in the hospital. They can leave the hospital once they can eat, move, and care for their catheter. It is necessary to keep your activities to a minimum following urethroplasty until you have healed completely. For at least two weeks, no intense exercise or work, and heavy lifting is permitted. Patients should avoid working while the catheter is in place if possible.


What is the success rate of urethroplasty surgery in Bhubaneswar?

The success rate varies depending on the type of urethroplasty procedure you have undergone. In 85 - 90% of cases, strictures can be resolved.
