Key issues and solutions

Prostate laser
Recommended when healthy urination becomes an issue in men. If you need prostate surgery, the latest generation laser allows you to achieve the best results, reducing complications and hospitalisation time.
Urological laparoscopy
If you require surgery for a tumour or reconstructive surgery, the laparoscopic route is preferable when technically feasible as it removes the need for abdominal incisions, reduces hospitalisation time and the patient recovers to normal activities more quickly.
Urinal bleeding test
Early diagnosis of genitourinary tumours. Using international standards and protocols for each case, we perform tests on patients at risk of developing or have a tumour in a urinary area of the body. We seek early diagnosis of kidney, urinary tract, bladder, prostate, testicle tumours and other conditions...

Dr. María Camacho

Functional Urology and Pelvic Floor Unit.

  • Degree in Medicine from the University of Cádiz.
  • Specialist in Urology (Puerto Real University Hospital).
  • Master's Degree in Urological Surgery Update from the Cardenal Herrera University.
  • Master's Degree in Functional Urology and Urodynamics from the University of Salamanca.

Personalised and individualised treatment, focused on the needs and characteristics of each patient. Functional Urology is the subspecialty that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of voiding dysfunctions in both women and men, urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, recurrent urinary tract infections and chronic pelvic pain, among other pathologies.

Key issues and solutions

Recurrent urinary tract infections
Recurrent urinary tract infections are a very common problem in women. There are various treatments that can help prevent their appearance, such as prophylaxis with autogenous vaccines, use of probiotics, topical treatment with oestrogens, or even intravesical therapy with hyaluronic acid.
Urinary incontinence or male and female urination symptoms
Bladder dysfunctions such as overactive bladder or neurogenic bladder, as well as urinary incontinence, whether stress or urge, require individualised assessment and treatment. From pelvic floor rehabilitation therapy with techniques such as biofeedback, minimally invasive surgery for urinary incontinence such as the suburethral mini-sling or intravesical injection of botulinum toxin.
Chronic pelvic pain
An adequate diagnostic study of this pathology is essential to be able to establish the cause that produces it and thus propose the best treatment strategy for each patient.
Early diagnosis of prostate cancer and other urological tumours
Urological tumours can be numerous depending on the organ they affect (kidney, prostate, bladder, testicle...). The most common is prostate cancer, for which diagnostic tests are used to detect it such as multiparametric prostate imaging and fusion biopsy. The treatment of different urological tumours involves different types of surgery. Endoscopic treatment and laparoscopic surgery allow us to offer a less invasive treatment with a better recovery after the intervention.

Key conditions and solutions

LASER treatment for kidney stones.
Applying cutting-edge technology, stones can now be treated using minimally invasive techniques which destroy all types of stones through the use of laser energy and miniaturised instruments in any part of the urinary system without the need for prolonged or aggressive surgeries.
LITOCAV penile shock wave treatment.
Treatment of erection problems and penile deformities through the use of shock waves that favour the formation of new blood vessels and nerve connections as well as the destruction of plaques that cause penile deformation in order to enjoy more powerful and satisfactory erections for the patient.
FUSION 3D Prostate Biopsy.
By using the latest technology, we can provide unprecedented precision when performing a prostate biopsy by combining Magnetic Resonance Imaging and high-definition ultrasound to increase the detection rate of prostate tumours.
Erection problems.
By approaching this prevalent problem in an integrated and personalised way, we can massively increase satisfaction in relationships, providing state-of-the-art treatments and combining them with psychological support when necessary.

Francisco Estudillo

Nurse

Responsible for the pelvic functional unit.

  • Associate Professor of Nursing 1995-2009 (University of Cádiz).

Key issues and solutions

Urodynamic Studies / Flowmetry / Manometry
Many voiding or anal dysfunctions are not anatomic problems but tend to fall into a definition of functional problems. We carry out functional diagnostic tests so that later the treatments can be adjusted to each case.
Pelvic floor rehabilitation
Incontinence can be improved or prevented if we strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. The biofeedback technique with electrodes can help us identify the key pelvic floor muscles for enhanced continence.
Cystoscopies and bladder instillations
This refers to a test that allows us "to see the bladder inside". Essential test for the diagnosis and monitoring of many bladder diseases. Some bladder diseases require treatment in the form of "washes" with chemical substances or drug solutions that have proven clinical efficacy.
Pelvic health tips
Some conditions of the pelvic organs are not cured with medications or interventions but can improve with recommendations on lifestyle habits.

Key issues and solutions

The treatment of pelvic pain is carried out through the application of specialised techniques for pain control that are the speciality of our Pain Unit team.

Origin of pain
The use of analgesic techniques such as nerve blockers (infiltrations), are not only part of the treatment, but also help diagnosis by differentiating structures involved in pain.
Radiofrequency
Technique consisting of the administration of an electric current through an electrode that is placed inside a tissue to produce a biological effect (analgesia). It is a minimally invasive technique and to most patients on an outpatient basis.
Neuromodulation
This involves the selective stimulation of sacral roots for the treatment of perineal origin pain and pelvic organic dysfunction.
TENS and Electroacupuncture
Technique based on stimulating and neuromodulating the posterior tibial nerve through small electrodes on the skin, which in a retrograde manner will also stimulate all the pelvic structures described above.
