Urodynamics Department of Ratna Memorial Hospital, Pune

The department of Urodynamics was established at the Ratna Memorial Hospital in October 1998. We had a modest beginning by performing 30 cases every month. This grew progressively to today’s number of about 120 cases in a month.

We are currently using third generation state of art Urodynamics equipment from MMS, complete with pressure flow studies, urethral pressure profile and video Urodynamics facility. We have so far performed over 22,000 Urodynamic investigations in the past 24 years and cater for the entire state of Maharashtra as well as the adjoining arts at Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and Telangana.

All investigations are performed by prior appointment and the reports are disbursed on the same day. Urodynamic Services are appropriately supported by the department of Casualty, Operation theatres and the indoor facility of Ratna Memorial Hospital. In this sense, this department now boasts to be one of the largest and the busiest Urodynamics Departments in India.
