Acute kidney stone pain (Renal Colic)

 

Kidney stone pain (renal colic) causes severe flank pain which can radiate into the groin. While many people will have to go to the Emergency Department for treatment, a proportion of people can be managed in the community. Your GP can order a CT scan, the best test to diagnose ureteric stones. From here we can give advice about management. Many stones will pass spontaneously without needing any treatment. We provide a full stone management service, including investigations for causes of stones as well as surgical management for stones that do not pass. Your GP can refer you, or you can contact the rooms if you have had a CT scan in the community.

Uromune for Recurrent UTIs

New options for women with Recurrent UTIs and Interstitial Cystitis

We see a large number of women who have recurrent UTIs which get in the way of their lives. Until recently, there have been few options to remedy this. We now have several new options which can be helpful. These include;
Uromune -a treatment that stimulates the immune system to prevent UTIs
Ialuril - a treatment for both recurrent UTIs and Interstitial Cystitis that replenishes the bladder lining.

ATOMS sling:

New anti-incontinence device for men now available at Bay Urology
The ATOMs sling is a novel device for treating male urinary incontinence. It features an inflatable cushion which sits under the urethra. The pressure that the cushion exerts can be varied by adding or removing water via a port that sits within the scrotum beside the testis. Patients void normally without having to utilise a pump in the scrotum (as with the artificial urinary sphincter).The device is implanted under general anesthetic via a 5cm incision in the perineum. The ATOMs sling fills a gap between the AdVance sling and the Artificial Urinary Sphincter that allows individualised treatment for male urinary incontinence

Abiraterone (Zytiga) has been approved by Pharmac, and will be available from May 1st. This is great news, as Abiraterone is safe, well tolerated, and effective in treating men who have a rising PSA despite being on androgen ablation (Lucrin, Zoladex, Eligard). Bay Urology has been using Zytiga since it was first available in NZ, and has specially designed clinics to treat men with Zytiga.
