Yes, urethral stricture disease is curable with the available treatment options. The choice of treatment depends on various factors, such as the location and length of the stricture, the patient's overall health, and their preferences. A urologist can evaluate the patient and recommend the most appropriate treatment.

  • Kidney stones in the bladder
  • Recurrent UTIs or urinary tract infections
  • Severe issues with urination as well as urinary retention
  • An increasing amount of urine left in the bladder post-urination
  • Failure of all conservative measures to control pain and other symptoms

The treatment of urethral strictures is mainly carried out through surgery rather than with medications alone. There are several surgical options available to treat urethral strictures such as dilation, urethroplasty, and endoscopic urethrotomy.

Yes, urethral strictures can be treated with lasers in some cases. Laser therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that involves using a laser to remove or vaporize the obstructive tissue, allowing the urethra to open up and function properly.

Women can get urethral stricture, but it’s rare. Since men have a longer urethra, there are more chances for the urethra in men to get impacted by diseases and injuries.

No, dilatation of the urethra with a balloon catheter is a daycare procedure that can be done under local or general anesthesia. Hence there is no need for hospitalization. 

The success rate for open urethroplasty surgery is over 80% in the long run for the treatment of urethral stricture. In urethroplasty, the narrowed portion of the urethra is removed or enlarged. Surrounding tissues may be reconstructed, where the tissues are taken from other areas of your body.
