Urology QR Code

The NUH Department of Urology focuses on the delivery of specialised medical and surgical care in all major aspects of urology. We constantly engage in research and development to enhance our expertise in the field of urological cancers, kidney transplants, treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), management of urinary stone conditions and male sexual dysfunction.

Quote - AProf. Edmund Chiong

Our research programme is complemented by advances which allow patients with complex conditions to be treated with technologies such as minimally invasive robotic surgery, transurethral needle ablative procedures and flexible ureteroscopy.

Our Urology Centre, located in the NUH Medical Centre, performs both outpatient diagnostic and interventional procedures.
