Urology

The Department’s patients will be impressed and satisfied, not only for the provision of the most modern surgical techniques, the best equipment, the best surgical result, but above all from the sincere behavior of the entire department, both the medical and nursing staff.
The Urology Department of St Luke’s hospital is one of the most recognizable surgical urology clinics in Greece. It consists of collaborators of great scientific value and prestige. Every year more than 2400 operations are performed and the whole range of urological diseases is treated. The experience of the department in the area of Urological Oncology and Endourology is considered special.
Scientific project of the Department

In the scientific part, the work of the Department is active with the participation of many of the hospital’s urological partners in medical research and in the publication of scientific works in recognized international conferences and journals.
Pioneer of the Department in Greece
In the hospital, innovative surgical techniques were applied for the first time, with the experience of the Department consequently being the largest nationwide. In the field of robotic surgery for prostate cancer, pioneering techniques are applied throughout Northern Greece, such as Retzius Sparing and SMART prostatectomy.
In December 2019, robotic neuroprotective prostatectomy for prostate cancer with the revolutionary NeuroSAFE technique was performed for the first time nationwide.
In February 2019, the first transurethral enucleation of the prostate using the Holmium Laser (HoLEP), a pioneering method for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia, was carried out for the first time nationwide.

Other operations performed at St Luke’s for the first time in the private sector of Northern Greece are the following:

  • Laparoscopic Radical Prostatectomy for prostate cancer
  • Laparoscopic Radical Cystectomy for Bladder Cancer
  • Laparoscopic Partial Nephrectomy for kidney cancer
  • Percutaneous Nephrolithotripsy for large kidney stones

Modern equipment

St Luke’s Urological surgeries are equipped with the most modern machines. Among them are the latest generation robotic system of the company Intuitive “Da vinci X” and the most powerful laser system in all of Greece “Lumenis 100W”.
