Transurethral ureterocele surgery is performed under general anaesthesia or near spinal anaesthesia.
The urologist performing the surgery inserts a surgical endoscope (resectoscope) through the urethra into the bladder.
Using the camera at the end of the device, the surgeon scans the bladder and then inserts a special pin into the tiny opening in the edge of the ureter.
The resectoscope is then used to make an incision in the opening of the ureterocoele.
The surgeon alleviates any bleeding that may occur, leaving a catheter in the bladder to allow urine to pass through.
