Nephrostomy

Nephrostomy at Rivers Hospital

A nephrostomy can help to drain urine from your body using a thin plastic tube called a catheter. It is performed if you have a blocked ureter as this is a serious condition.

Nephrostomy is a common interventional procedure. It is performed by our experienced interventional radiologists in our hospital’s modern and well-equipped imaging departments.

We offer convenient appointments without waiting at a local Ramsay hospital near you and will perform the procedure quickly. Our friendly and professional team will offer you support and advice on your looking after your nephrostomy tube.

Strict infection control protocols are in place in all Ramsay hospitals to keep you and our staff safe whilst visiting.
