The management of urological cancers is intended to be comprehensive, from diagnosis to medical or surgical treatment, as well as the terminal phases. The service works in close collaboration with various stakeholders, mainly the Cancerology team of the CHU
The urology department uses the new generation intuitive surgical robot This allows minimally invasive surgery with great finesse and precision. This tool is mainly used for the management of urological tumors (prostate cancer, kidney cancer with the partial nephrectomy technique, bladder cancer).
We are proud to be able to offer our patients state-of-the-art technology to perform prostate biopsies with millimeter precision by merging MRI -ultrasound images. We use MRI elastic fusion with a state-of-the-art machine . Biopsies are performed trans-perineally or trans-recally under local or general anesthesia.
Prostate adenoma Laser Greenlight® vaporization system, reducing the duration of hospitalization and postoperative bleeding. Recently, the department acquired a new reference technique for the treatment of prostate adenoma ( Holmium laser enucleation).
The management of neuro-urology and incontinence is a pole whose activity, which can be carried out on an outpatient basis, is constantly and rapidly increasing. The most recent techniques are used there, in particular sacral neuromodulation which can give spectacular results in major bladder instability and chronic neurogenic urinary retention.
A regular multidisciplinary consultation meeting ( Périnée Clinic ) has also been in place since 2019 to comply with the new HAS . There are gastroenterologists, digestive surgeons, gynecologists and a psychologist.
management of renal insufficiency , in collaboration with the Nephrology-Hemodialysis of the CHU but also with the various nephrology teams in the region, is an important activity.
We use within the service of the service of the “heated Ametycine”. This therapy makes it possible to treat certain types of bladder cancer that are resistant to conventional treatments.
In order to offer rapid care on our territory and avoid the displacement of patients, all members of the team consult at least once a week in a public hospital center:
- Pr Xavier Tillou: Friday at the Cricqueboeuf hospital center
- Dr Lionel VAUDREUIL: Friday at the Saint-Lô hospital center

Finally, we have a consultation dedicated to medically assisted procreation and erectile dysfunction thanks to a urologist and the precious help of a sexologist psychologist who consults within the urology team (Madame Caroline Devisme). The service has recently acquired equipment allowing the management of erectile dysfunctions and deviations of the penis (Malaie de Lapyeronie) while avoiding invasive treatment (surgery).
