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.


An incision (cut) is made in the penis and the narrowed part of the urethra (the tube that carries urine to the outside of your body) is removed and the urethra rejoined.

In balloon urethroplasty, a thin tube with a balloon attached is inserted into the opening of the penis. When it reaches the narrowed part of the urethra, the balloon is inflated, thus widening the urethra.
