After carrying out the complicated surgery of an intestine of a premature newborn baby successfully a few days back, AIIMS Bhubaneswar has added another feather to its cap in the field of advanced health care.

The trusted tertiary care national health institution has recently implanted Artificial Urinary Sphincters (AUS) in a person’s body successfully. The cutting-edge service is considered as a significant advancement in urological care. 

The Urology Department of AIIMS Bhubaneswar conducted the complicated and advanced surgery successfully. The modern surgery is first of its kind implantation in Odisha. Earlier, this implantation was only available in the metro cities of our country.

The AUS program at AIIMS Bhubaneswar was led by a team of highly skilled urologists and surgeons, trained in the latest techniques and using state-of-the-art technology.

The Artificial Urinary Sphincter (AUS) implantation procedure is recognized as a gold standard treatment for urinary incontinence that has not responded to conventional treatment modalities. This service is particularly tailored for patients who have experienced urinary incontinence due to prostate surgery, spinal cord injuries, or other underlying conditions that affect urinary control.

Congratulating the team of doctors for the successful implantation, Executive Director of Bhubaneswar AIIMS Dr. Ashutosh Biswas said, “The Department of Urology at AIIMS Bhubaneswar has consistently been providing world class care which is at the forefront of technology and innovation. With the introduction of the services of Artificial Urinary Sphincter implantation here, the people of Odisha and Eastern India will have access to this service, for which they had been travelling to centres in other states.”
