Procedure Descriptions

If you are undergoing any of the procedures listed below, please take the time to read the description of the procedure and what you can expect before, during and following.

Cystoscopy
The physician inserts a cystoscope (fiberoptic camera) into the urethra and then into the bladder to visually inspect for tumors, stones, etc. This is usually performed in the office under local anesthesia with or without an oral urinary analgesic taken beforehand.  Patients are usually given one or two antibiotic pills following the procedure to lessen the possibility of infection. It is not uncommon to have some irritative urinary symptoms (urgency, frequency, hesitancy) for a few days following the procedure as well as some blood in the urine.
Cystoscopy
Cystoscopy and Bladder Biopsy
With a cystoscope, the physician removes small tissue samples from the bladder to send for pathological analysis.
Prostate Needle Biopsy
This is a procedure to rule out the presence of cancer. It is typically performed if the prostate is suspicious on digital rectal exam and/or the serum PSA test is abnormal. The biopsy is performed through the rectum. A sonographic probe is inserted, the prostate is imaged, measured and then under local anesthesia typically 12 cores from different locations are taken and sent for analysis. Patients need to be prepped before the procedure with some antibiotics (see instruction sheet) as well as a fleet enema. Patients will experience some blood in the urine, from the rectum and in the ejaculate for up to six weeks following the procedure.
