Treats kidney, ureter, bladder, urethra diseases as well as prostate and sexual function disorders
At Ewha Womans University Urology Institute Kidney Cancer/Adrenaltumor Center, non-ischemic partial nephrectomy has recently minimized kidney function loss, even if there are many bumps to be removed in one kidney, such as genetic diseases, only a number of tumors are safely removed by partial resection without impairing renal function. In addition, high-level surgery such as kidney cancer with malignant tumor thrombosis in the vena cava is also safely performed. In order to treat adrenal tumors, hormone tests and nuclear medicine tests were conducted in consultation with the endocrine medicine department, if surgery is necessary, minimally invasive surgery and robotic adrenal resection, which only resects tumors, are actively performed using robotic devices that have recently been in the spotlight. Ewha Womans University Urology Institute's kidney cancer/adrenal tumor center promises to provide the best service through customized treatment for patients.
The prostate cancer center of Ewha Womans University Urology Institute is the most common male cancer in developed Western countries, and Korea is also providing various and effective treatments for prostate cancer, which is rapidly increasing in recent years. For local prostate cancer, surgery is performed to preserve nerve blood vessels to maintain sexual life after surgery, and various surgical treatments and radiation treatments are performed, focusing on robotic surgery using Da Vinci Xi surgical robots. Local progressive prostate cancer is actively treated with surgery or combination of radiation therapy and hormone therapy, hormone therapy for metastatic prostate cancer, chemotherapy for hormonal refractory prostate cancer, and new clinical trial treatments are performed to treat prostate cancer professionally and effectively tailored to patients.
