The department of Urology was inaugurated by Dr. Shankar Dayal Sharma, the honourable President of India in the presence of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, on 22nd November, 1992.
The department has three fully equipped operation theaters, a seven-bedded Urology ICU and a 60-bedded ward. It has facilities for Open Urological surgery, Endo-Urology, PCNL, Laproscopy and ESWL.
Super specialty training in the field of Urology leading to the conferring of DNB (Urology) was started in the year 1994. Two candidates are admitted every year, selected by the National Board of Examinations and at a given time, we have six DNB Residents working and learning full time in the department. There is a well-established daily teaching schedule for these DNB Residents. Nearly 40 candidates have been trained so far in the department and 6 are being trained currently. We have had a 100% passing rate of DNB Residents in the last several years.
120-160 patients attend the Urology OPD every day. About 40-50 beds are occupied in the Urology ward throughout the year and about 10-12 major Urological surgeries are performed every day.
The administrative wing of the department is headed by the HOD and assisted by a Senior Manager.
The department provides the following Urological services.
Urology OPD functions from 8:30 AM till all the OPD patients are seen – normally around 3-4PM, on all working days between Monday and Saturday.
