BL Kapur Memorial Hospital is one of the biggest standalone private hospitals in Delhi, NCR. Established by late Dr. B L Kapur, an eminent Obstetrician, and Gynecologist on invitation by then Prime Minister of India, Mr. Jawahar Lal Nehru. The institute went on to become one of Delhi's premier multi-specialty hospitals.
Fortis Hospital, Mulund is a 300 bedded multispeciality tertiary care facility situated in the centre of the city, offering a range of clinical, diagnostic, and surgical services. The hospital began operations in 2002 and since then has achieved various milestones.
Pyeloplasty is a procedure that allows urine to flow freely from the kidney to the lengthy tube that connects the kidney to the bladder (ureter). The ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) blockage is the name for this type of obstruction.
The surgery's purpose is to establish a free flow of urine, which will relieve edema and pressure in the kidney. Pyeloplasty is the most common surgical surgery for the treatment of kidney enlargement caused by urine collecting (hydronephrosis). The procedure clears the obstruction between the ureter and the renal pelvis (UPJ blockage). It reconnects the healthy segment of the ureter to the kidney's drainage system after removing the constricted or obstructed portion.
Types of Pyeloplasty
Open Pyeloplasty: The incision can be made in the lower back, right beneath the 12th rib, across the abdomen, or in the flank region, which is the most usual traditional technique of performing the surgery. In each case, a lengthy cut is done, exposing the kidney by removing the skin, intermediate tissue, and muscles. The ureter is then rejoined to the renal pelvis after the constricted part of the junction is cut and removed. A stent is sometimes put in the narrowed area to maintain the area open and allow for easy urine drainage. Muscles, skin, and other tissues are sewn up after the treatment. The patient is required to stay in the hospital for 3-4 days, with a recovery period of 1-3 months.
Laparoscopic Pyeloplasty: The treatment was initially carried out in 1993 and since then has steadily gained acceptance among patients and surgeons alike. Small cuts and microscopic instruments replace huge incisions in this surgery, which is similar to open pyeloplasty. Despite the fact that the surgery necessitates specialized expertise, it is a more preferred option due to the shorter hospital stay and speedier recovery.
A pyeloplasty may be required in both adults and children. A UPJ blockage affects one out of every 1500 babies. It affects twice as many men as it does women.
If the problem does not improve after 18 months, pyeloplasty will most likely be required.
Adults, teenagers, and older children can develop a UPJ obstruction and may require a pyeloplasty if their kidney is clogged.
A two to three inch cut is made immediately below your baby's rib cage during an open pyeloplasty, and the clogged piece of ureter is removed.
The ureter is then reattached to the renal pelvis with a normal caliber ureter.
A stent (a little silicone tube) is inserted into their kidney to drain urine. The stent will be removed once they have healed.
The surgeon will make a series of small incisions, each measuring between eight and ten millimeters in length.
Your surgeon's assistant robot contains three to four robotic arms. Two to three people are holding instruments, and one is holding a camera. The devices have a similar range of motion to the human hand and can remove the narrow/scarred area of the UPJ blockage while reconnecting the normal tissue.
After surgery, your healthcare professional will continue to check for this for several months. Follow your healthcare provider's advice for returning to "normal." Short walks should be attempted immediately following surgery. You can move heavy objects and work out after four to six weeks.
Pyeloplasty is a rewarding procedure. The effectiveness of a pyeloplasty ranges from 85 percent to 100 percent. When compared to other surgical procedures for UPJ obstruction, it offers the highest success rate.

Your team was instrumental in setting up my Dad with Dr. Babu and other healthcare teams. Your professionalism is exceptional. You responded to my all concerns within 24 hours; you reassured me everything would be okay when I needed it the most; you showed compassion that I've never seen before. Dr. Babu successfully operated on my Dad and we are so grateful for that. I would like to say a special thank you to Mr. Bachir, whom my dad now calls a friend.

Following pyeloplasty, you or your child may experience some discomfort. After a week, the pain may subside, and you or your child will be prescribed medication to assist alleviate the discomfort.
Studies show that regardless of the beginning degree of relative performance, pyeloplasty did not improve renal function. In some patients whose hydronephrosis was discovered prenatally and who were originally followed with observation, a renal scan revealed that differential function decreased following pyeloplasty.
Open pyeloplasty takes 8 weeks to recover from, whereas laparoscopic pyeloplasty takes 3-4 weeks.
The success rate in terms of total radiographic clearing of the obstruction is around 90%, with symptomatic alleviation being around 95%. Endoscopic methods such as endopyelotomy, on the other hand, have a success rate of 70-80%.
A few weeks following surgery, the stent is removed in the operating room. This is an outpatient operation that can be completed the same day. A drain may be implanted in the area around the kidney and ureter to drain any excess fluid that accumulates during and after surgery. The drain is removed from the bedside once the drainage stops.
In general, the dangers of a pyeloplasty are the same as any other surgery, including infection, redness, swelling, bleeding, and the procedure failing to correct the condition. Urine can, however, flow into other places during kidney operation, causing irritation.
