Urology and its procedures are undergoing progressive change only to result into new, improved and highly effective technology. This progress began only recently after the discovery of X- rays, discovery of small lenses, development in the field of anasthetia, new generation extra corporeal lithotriptors, improved hypospadias/vasovasoctomy, evolved laparoscopy, new chemotherapeutic agents, advanced surgical microscopes, growing laser innovations etc. all these have largely contributed to the urology development.
As a result of this, many complex urological procedures and surgeries which took a long time in the past, now facilitate speedy recovery, minimum blood loss and invasions. So many in-patient procedures are now possible as out- patient procedures, due to such technological refinement in the field of urology.
