Dr. Jimmy Lam is a Urological & Laparoscopic Surgeon. His services include:
Laparoscopy is commonly performed procedure to Investigate and some key hole surgeries on abdominal and pelvic organs.
Robotic prostatectomy also known as Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy - is a way to perform minimally invasive prostate cancer surgery.
Minimal Invasive Laser Prostate & Stone Surgery
Laser surgery of the prostrate is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a condition of enlargement of the prostate gland. This treatment achieves speedy relief from symptoms, quick recovery as well as reduces post-operative complications.
Cancer is a disease that results from abnormal growth and division of cells that make up the body's tissues and organs. Under normal circumstances, cells reproduce in an orderly fashion to replace old cells, maintain tissue health and repair injuries. However, when growth control is lost and cells divide too much and too fast, a cellular mass -or "tumour" -is formed.
Minimally Invasive Techniques
Kidney stones are one of the most common and most painful disorders of the urinary tract. A kidney stone is a hard crystalline mineral material that forms within the kidney or urinary tract.
Most kidney stones that are small enough usually pass through the urinary tract on their own with more fluid intake. Surgery may be needed to remove a kidney stone if it does not pass after a reasonable period of time or if the stone is growing and blocking the flow of urine.
Prosthetic devices in urology are used to treat erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence.
It a surgically implantable device used to treat urinary incontinence, a condition of involuntary loss of urine. The most common indication for AUS in men is sphincter damage because of prostate surgery and in women is stress incontinence. Artificial sphincters are also used in men with stress incontinence. Stress incontinence is involuntary loss of urine during activities such as coughing and sneezing.
Voiding dysfunction also known as bladder dysfunction is a result of a defect in the filling or emptying of the bladder. It may be because of inappropriate activity of the muscles of the bladder wall or the pelvic floor. These sphincter muscles control the flow of urine out of the body. Neurological diseases and certain medications also lead to voiding dysfunction.
High Dose Rate Brachytherapy
High dose rate brachytherapy, also referred to as HDR brachytherapy, is a type of radiation therapy that eliminates cancer cells by making it difficult for them to proliferate (increase or multiply). It is an advanced cancer treatment that involves placing radioactive material inside or close to the tumor to deliver a highly concentrated dose of radiation to destroy cancer cells while sparing the surrounding healthy tissue.
Brachytherapy, or seed brachytherapy, is a form of radiation therapy used to treat prostate cancer. It entails implanting radioactive sources in the prostate gland, where the radiation emitted from these sources can destroy cancer cells while inflicting minimal damage to nearby healthy tissue.
Computer-Guided Transperineal Prostate Biopsy
Physicians may use ultrasound- and MRI-guided biopsy to obtain tissue samples from the prostate gland. However, physicians most often perform prostate biopsies using ultrasound guidance where your physician places a special biopsy needle into the prostate gland through the wall of the rectum to extract several small samples of prostate tissue for laboratory analysis. This is called transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) guided biopsy.
