In this case using a cystoscope the narrowed part of urethra ( stricture/scar tissue) is directly visualized and cut across using acold knife. No cut is involved in the skin. Optical internal urethrotomy i.e. oiu can be done as day care surgery. Usually a catheter is kept for 5-7 days post surgery for healing.
The OIU technique is a daycare procedure that allows the patient to go home the same day. The OIU surgery cost for stricture urethra at Dr. Niren Rao's Urology Practice begins at Rs. 25000 for OIU.
