Ureteropelvic Obstruction/Pyeloplasty

Urology Centers of Alabama offers robotic, laparoscopic surgery to reconstruct an obstructed ureter and renal pelvis due to a condition known as a uretero-pelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction. This operation is known as a pyeloplasty and can be done using the da Vinci robot system.ᅠ ᅠDuring this procedure, the obstructed, narrowed area at the junction of the kidney and the ureter is removed and the ureter and kidney are sewn back together over a hollow plastic tube called a ureteral stent.ᅠ This stent is completely internal and remains in place for a month. It is removed easily in the office. Pyeloplasty has a 95% success rate.
