We were proud to install the first individual Dornier Lithotripsy Machine in Pune in 2002. We were also proud to start the first Plasma Kinetic Energy in Maharashtra, for TURP using ACMI (using normal saline as irrigatiing medium) in 2004.Subsequently it was upgraded to Gyrus pkmachine in 2006.
Pramodini Urology Foundation is the leading urology care Hospital in Maharashtra. having the best urologist in pune.It has grown leaps and bounds in last 21 years with overwhelming support from all the Doctors and general population. Now we are happy to announce the installation of the first Thulium 120 watt Laser machine in Maharashtra and only the second in India. Thulium Laser is the useful technology for the treatment of benign prostatic hyerplasia, bladder cancer, stricture urethra, etc. It resect the prastatic tissue by enucleation as well as evaporation. Enucleation can resect prostate in toto with very minimal bleeding. As normal saline is used for irrigation, there is no risk of the life threatening TURP syndrome. As THULIUM laser can also be used for evaporation of prostate, it is a very useful tool for patients of BPH who are on ecosprin & copidogrel, as there is no risk of bleeding by evaporation technique. Also, there is no sloughing of necrotic tissue as seen in the green light laser. Pramodini Urology Foundation also harbors 30 watt holmium laser for the treatment of urinary stones. Holmium laser evaporates the stone without any mechanical power, thereby reducing the chances of migrationof stones during ureteroscopies and also reduces the requirement of stent, thereby avoiding the longterm postoperative discomfort and pain of the stent and also avoiding another procedure of stent removing. We are happy to announce Pune's first 7.5 French flexible ureteroscope by CARL STORZ-the FLEX EX II. Its miniature size increases success rate of RIRS (Retrograde Internal Surgery) by easy access of the pelvicalyceal system through urethra.It can reach almost every calyx of the kidney and the laser can evaporate the stone. To assist all these hi-tech equipments, we have all accesories like Richard Wolf Morsillator (first in Maharashtra) to remove enucleated prostatic tissue within a few seconds. We also have the latest Richard Wolf Resectoscopes, Nephroscope, etc. The sopro three chip camera with 300 watt xenon light source and medical monitor helps the surgeon with excellent vision. Laparoscopic urological and gynaecological surgeries are routinely performed at Pramodini Urology Foundation. Pramodini Urology Foundation has done more than 4000 Lithotripsies uptil now on its Dornier Alfa Lithotripsy machine which is one of the best machines in the world. Dual localisation on 9 inch high resolution C arm and BK (Denmark) Falcon USG machine gives very high success rates in the range of 90%. We have done all types of stones from 5-6 mm to 5 cm and age varying from 7 months to 94 years. We have treated patients of upper, middle as well as lower ureteric stones by ESWL.
