Cystoscopy Procedure

Make Sure that All is Well in Your Urinary System

While you are at the doctor getting a checkup, be sure you do not neglect the health of your urinary system. During a cystoscopy procedure at a miVIP surgery center, one of our leading surgeons will check the condition of your bladder and urethra with a cystoscope. Like all of the procedures done at miVIP, our cystoscopies are minimally invasive. It can be completed in a doctor’s office with anesthesia jelly, or as an outpatient procedure.

If you experience any of the following symptoms, you might want to talk with your doctor about cystoscopy procedures:

  • Blood in urine/pain while urinating
  • Constant pain in the pelvis
  • Suspicious cells in a urine sample
  • Chronic urinary tract infections
  • Frequent urination

How the Procedure is Performed

The way that your cystoscopy will be performed will be most dependent on your current complications. You might receive general, spine or local anesthesia before the cystoscope is lubricated and inserted into your urethra so that the urologist can take a look at your cells. If there are any problems, you might have to undergo a bladder stone removal, biopsy or stent placement.

During the procedure, certain conditions might be identified, such as:

  • Enlarged prostate
  • Blood in the bladder
  • Polyps/tumors/ulcers in the urethra or bladder
  • Urethra narrowing
  • Pelvic organ prolapse

A cystoscopy procedure might also be required in order to insert other tools, such as:

  • Biopsy tools
  • Video cameras
  • Stents
  • Catheter

What Should You Expect Afterwards?

Once your cystoscopy procedure is complete, you will more than likely be back on your feet anywhere from one to two hours after the spinal or general anesthesia has worn off, probably faster if you were put under with local anesthesia. If you had a catheter put in for the procedure, it will be taken out before you leave. Some side effects of the procedure include a bit of blood in your urine and having temporary difficulty urinating. Rare side effects that you should alert us of include:

  • Perforated urethra/bladder/ureter
  • Infection
  • Scarring in the urethra

Procedure Costs

As for the cost of your cystoscopy procedure, it might be covered under your insurance plan. In any case, it is always best that you check with your insurance provider to see if there are any out-of-pocket expenses that you need to take care of.
