Urologists in Turkey apply minimally invasive approach in 90% of cases
Urology in Turkey features the use of minimally invasive procedures by local hospitals in over 90 per cent of surgical and diagnostic cases. Such medical conditions as prostate surgery, kidney stone disease, and male infertility are successfully treated by local urologists who apply Greenlight laser surgery, shock-wave therapy, and minimally invasive approaches.
A significant number of urology patients visit Turkey for affordable non-contact lithotripsy when non-invasive extracorporeal shock wave method is applied. The method aims at breaking stones into small pieces causing no damage to surrounding tissues.
