Treatment for Urethral Stricture
As the premier regional expert in urethral strictures, Dr. Ryan Terlecki performs a high volume of urethroplasty, a surgical procedure to correct urethral stricture. During this procedure, a urethra that has been narrowed by scar tissue is reconstructed or replaced. This type of surgery is considered the gold standard of urethral reconstruction, as it provides the best and longest-lasting results.
There are several surgical approaches to urethroplasty, depending on the length and location of the stricture, among other factors. After evaluating your condition, Dr. Terlecki will let you know which technique is appropriate.
In the case of a short stricture, the repair may be as simple as removing the involved segment and bringing the healthy areas together with absorbable suture.
For longer strictures, or those located in less elastic areas of the urethra, the repair may involve using a patch of tissue to enlarge the urethra so as to allow comfortable and easy emptying of urine from the bladder.
