Vedanayagam Hospital offers expert clinical advice, care and assistance for diseases / disorders related to Urology and ensures best medical attention by experienced personnel.

The hospital has many firsts’ to its credit and has achieved many milestones. It is the first exclusive Urology Hospital in Tamilnadu and promoter is the first to perform renal transplantation in South India apart from CMC, Vellore. Endourology had an impressive start and has grown in leaps and bounds and the hospital has established itself as a pioneer referral centre in South India and has trained many Urologists in this craft. It is the first centre to carryout Laparoscopic Urology in South India.

Over the last twenty five years, we have accomplished over 40,000 Ureteroscopy procedures (Rigid and Flexible), nearly 10,000 Key Hole Surgeries (PCNL) for kidney stones and about 100 live related donor renal transplantation. The hospital is accredited by the National Board of Examinations for training Urologists and has two seats for every academic year. As on December 2008 five candidates have completed the training and are successful practitioners in near by districts, thereby providing excellent urology care.

The hospital is involved in conducting workshops in minimally invasive urology including flexible uretroscopy and is planning to take laparoscopic urology to great heights in the near future. Through our Outreach programme, we are planning to conduct research studies of urological disorders pertaining to India.
