Southern Cross Wellington Hospital - Urology

Private Surgical Service, Urology

This is where you will come to have your surgery performed. The visits to your surgeon before and after surgery will be at their consulting rooms.


A long, thin tube with a tiny camera attached (cystoscope) is inserted into the urinary opening and through the urethra (the tube that carries urine from your bladder to the outside of your body) to your bladder. This allows the urologist to view any abnormalities in your lower urinary tract and, if necessary, take a small tissue sample to look at under the microscope (biopsy).
