Centrokinetic introduces the patients to the first concept in the recovery of pelvic disorders branch in Romania, a project designed for both women and men, which addresses pelvic pain urological, orthopedic, neurological or rheumatological, urinary incontinence in women and erectile dysfunctions in men. The department is coordinated by Dr. Minciuna, primary urologist, who specializes in diagnosing and treating these conditions. Along with Dr. Minciuna, this department also includes:

  • Dr. Georgiana Tache, primary care physician in recovery, physical medicine, and balneology, with 31 years of experience in the field. She is a university teacher - chief of works at the UMF Carol Davila Medical Recovery Discipline, Bucharest.
  • Dr. Adina Matei, doctor in recovery, physical medicine and balneology, with over 10 years of experience, EMG competence.
  • Dr. Renata Czego, doctor in recovery, physical medicine and balneology, with over 10 years of experience, EMG competence.
  • Dr. Mustafa Edis, recovery specialist, physical medicine and balneology, being the first doctor in Romania to approach transcranial electrical stimulation.

What kind of investigations do we perform in the urology department?

  • Urinary tract ultrasound: is a simple, non-invasive investigation, through which the urologist can assess the health of the entire urinary tract.
  • Penile ultrasound, with the role of assessing blood circulation in the penis, its damage being one of the most common causes of erectile dysfunction
  • Testicular ultrasound, which evaluates the structure and functionality of the testicles. It is a complex and fast method, which offers high accuracy in diagnosing these diseases. 
  • Transrectal ultrasound: is a special type of ultrasound that can visualize with great accuracy all the anatomical structures in the prostate area, including smaller lesions or minimal changes that can not be assessed otherwise.
  • Urethral secretion collection: is the method by which the pathogens responsible for the infection of the male urethra and/or prostate are identified.
  • Foley tube installation: it is a simple method, by which, in the case of problems during urination, a transperineal tube can be mounted, up to the bladder, to resume urination.

How is the Foley urinary catheter inserted?

The urinary catheter is inserted through the urethra, into the bladder, thus achieving communication between the bladder and the external environment. The purpose of the probe can be exploratory: collecting urine for laboratory examinations, detecting pathological changes in the urethra and bladder, or therapeutically: administering drugs, emptying the bladder.

Indications

It has the following indications: in urinary retention, in surgeries, in endoscopic explorations of the urethra, bladder, ureters.

Contraindications

As for contraindications, we have: acute urethral infections, traumatic rupture of the urethra, tumors.
Anatomically, in men the urethra is longer and has two sagittal curves, the first being anteriorly convex and the second posteriorly convex. The patient should be lying on his back, with his legs outstretched and apart. Subsequently, the urinary meatus is disinfected, the foreskin gland is released, the meatus is finely wiped several times, then the glans is fixed between the thumb, index finger, and middle of the left hand, unfolding the urethral meatus with the first two fingers. Choose the probe with which the probe is made with sterile anatomical forceps, lubricate the tip of the probe, which is held like a pencil. Insert the probe gently, and with the help of tweezers push forward. Parallel to the left hand, the penis is stretched so that the transverse folds disappear.

If the probe does not progress, retract 2-3 cm and push again with fine, circular movements. Entry into the bladder marks the flow of the fluid (urine). The probe can be attached to the bladder for a permanent probe by inflating the balloon.

The price of the Foley probe insertion is 250 RON.

Treatment of premature ejaculation

The most effective treatment for premature ejaculation is Androfill infiltration, which offers a revolutionary treatment. Treatment involves injecting hyaluronic acid into the penis. Hyaluronic acid infiltrations are the same ones that women often use on their face. The purpose of this treatment is to reduce the sensitivity of the head of the penis (glans).
