Endopyelotomy is an endoscopic surgery for the enlargement of the junction of the renal pelvis with the ureter, which facilitates the transport of urine from the kidney to the bladder.

This procedure (endopyelotomy) aims to widen the renal pelvis by inserting small instruments either up through the urinary tract or down through the skin and into the kidney.

Consult our doctor at Medfin to know your treatment options.

What is Endopyelotomy Surgery?

Endo refers to the usage of scope during the procedure. No incision is made on any part of the body. Pyelo refers to the center part of the kidney or kidney pelvis where the uterus is starting. Tomy which means to cut.

Once the kidney produces urine, it is drained to the collecting system that is in the center part of the kidney. 

The central part known as the renal pelvis is formed when individual passageways of the collecting system are combined or come together. The renal pelvic into the ureter will funnel the urine.

In case of any issues with a ureter or kidney, a small telescope is inserted through the urethra further passing to the bladder and the ureter to examine the condition.

 Another process to check is by creating a tiny hole in the back region of the kidney. This is referred to as percutaneous access to the kidney or ureter.
