Urology in Malaysia features brachytherapy, green light laser, and minimally-invasive surgery

In Malaysia, computed tomography and endoscopy are widely applied to diagnose urologic diseases. Prostate cancer is handled through modern non-invasive method called brachytherapy (or sealed-source radiotherapy). To remove stones from kidneys internal non-invasive lithotripsy is applied to ensure tissue integrity.

Cost can be a key factor while choosing destination for treatment. In this light, Malaysian urologic procedures aren’t that expensive compared to those in the U.S., Australia, or Singapore. Specifically, lithotripsy costs about $3,000 while nephrectomy (kidney removal) makes up to $4,000.

Local urologists and surgeons frequently refer to laparoscopic and stereotactic techniques as well as green light laser to minimize cuts, after-surgery pain, and rehabilitation period.

Urologists at Malaysian hospitals specialize in:

  • urinary incontinence and infection
  • prostate/kidney/bladder cancer
  • modified prostate
  • erectile dysfunction
  • kidney stones
  • andropause
  • etc.
