About the department

The urology and andrology department at Memorial Sisli Hospital Istanbul offers comprehensive diagnostics and effective treatment of the full range of diseases of the genital organs in men and the urinary system in men and women. The department's medical staff is distinguished by exceptional professionalism in their expertise and regularly demonstrates excellent treatment success rates. The department's team consists of urologists, andrologists, therapists, endoscopists and caring nurses. Doctors work on state-of-the-art medical equipment to detect the slightest pathological changes and effectively perform surgical treatment using endoscopic, laparoscopic and robotic techniques that guarantee fast postoperative recovery and minimal complications after the intervention. One of the critical areas of work in the department is the treatment of oncological diseases of the genitourinary system in men, such as bladder cancer, prostate cancer or kidney cancer. 

Doctors of the department specialize in treating infectious diseases of the urinary system, kidney stones, urinary incontinence and other pathological conditions. In addition, andrologists treat male infertility, erectile dysfunction, ejaculation disorders, and age-related changes. The department is proud of its ability to provide HIFU therapy, available only in modern medical institutions in developed countries. This treatment method allows destroying tumours with an accuracy of 1 mm, excluding damage to adjacent healthy tissues.
