Prostate is a small, walnut-shaped gland that is responsible for producing seminal fluid. When cancer cells start to develop in a man’s prostate, there is mostly a difficulty in urination, but sometimes there are no symptoms whatsoever.
Also known as renal failure, kidney failure is a condition in which the kidneys lose their ability to remove waste and balance fluids, and everything gets accumulated in the blood. The two main forms are acute kidney injury, which is often reversible with adequate treatment, and chronic kidney disease, which is often not reversible.
Kidney stones are hard deposits, which form inside the kidney, and vary in size and number. When passing through the urinary tract, the stones can cause a lot of pain, but not any permanent damage.

The disease is considered to be as life-threatening when the bacteria move from urinary tract to the blood.

Robotic-assisted Laparoscopic Radical Cystectomy: This is a minimally invasive surgical procedure is primarily performed for bladder cancer. Da Vinci surgical system is utilized in this procedure where the movements of a surgeon are imitated by a robotic arm in order to increase their precision. This is considered as the effective surgery for those patients who are suffering from bladder cancer. During the procedure, small incisions are made without affecting vital muscle tissue and nerve. This procedure results in shorter hospital stays and faster recovery time.
