Urology and Uro-Oncology

Urology in Israel is one of the most promising fields of medicine, enabling tens of thousands of people from around the world not only to eliminate chronic urological and reproductive system diseases but also to restore prostate gland function.

Today, Israeli medicine is capable of effectively addressing almost all urological and uro-oncological conditions, even when patients turn to Israeli clinics after specialists in other countries were unable to provide assistance. As a result, tens of thousands of individuals from around the world come to Israel each year seeking professional medical care that leads to a full recovery.

In Israeli medical centers, diagnostics and treatment are available for a wide range of urological and uro-oncological conditions, including:

  • Urological Oncology
  • Prostate and Bladder Disorders
  • Kidney and Adrenal Disorders
  • Pediatric Conditions (e.g., undescended testicle, hydrocele, or hypospadias)


Uro-Oncology and Urology in Israel

Present-day treatment in Israel aims not only to cure the patient’s disease but also to preserve the full functionality of the urological and reproductive systems. Even in cases that involve complex open surgeries, requiring partial removal of internal organs by Israeli doctors.

In Israel, the treatment of urological diseases always begins with detailed diagnostics using the latest methods and equipment. Depending on the indications, diagnostics may include ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, and/or computerized tomography of the abdominal and pelvic cavities, prostate biopsy, radioisotope studies of the kidneys, cystoscopy, and urodynamic studies.

Many clinics offer services such as bladder reconstruction and the treatment of impotence. However, most patients seeking assistance from Israeli urologists are those with concerning diagnoses of prostate adenoma. In most countries, this condition can only be treated with open surgery. However, prostate adenoma treatment in Israel is so exceptional and gentle that complex interventions are avoided in most cases. If a tumor requires removal, lasers are commonly used for this purpose.

Israeli urologists collaborate with specialists in related fields, such as nephrologists and oncologists, enabling alternative therapies to be offered to patients, such as brachytherapy for prostate cancer.

In cases of impotence, equally effective treatment methods are available. Primarily, oral medications of the latest generation containing testosterone can quickly restore the function of the reproductive organs without causing side effects. Additionally, injections are successfully used in the treatment of impotence in Israeli clinics, with positive results in 90% of cases.

During the treatment of prostatitis in Israeli clinics, various antibacterial drugs are typically used, which can rapidly alleviate pain and stop the inflammatory process. Surgical treatment is sometimes recommended but is indicated only when medications do not alleviate the symptoms.

Cost of Treatment

The cost of treatment is another advantage of Israeli clinics. Despite urology costs in Israel being 10-15% lower than in Western Europe or the USA, patients traveling to Israel receive treatment based on innovative protocols from world-class specialists in state-of-the-art clinics.

Israeli doctors aim not only to cure their patients but also to prevent a decrease in their quality of life. Therefore, in cases where surgery can be avoided, conservative treatment is always proposed to the patient first.

If surgery is unavoidable, Israeli urologists perform it using the gentlest methods. For example, in the case of prostate or bladder tumors, surgeons prefer endoscopic removal. Laparoscopic resection of kidney tumors while preserving the healthy part of the kidney is also common practice in Israel. Such techniques significantly reduce the recovery period and prevent complications associated with organ removal and open surgery.

Treatment of Bladder Cancer in Israel

It is commonly accepted that the main cause of bladder cancer is the action of carcinogenic substances excreted in the urine on the bladder mucosa. Major risk factors for developing bladder cancer include working in direct contact with plastics, dyes, aluminum, and other materials, as well as smoking cigarettes.
