Internal urethrotomy involves making an incision in the scar causing the stricture using a specialized instrument for cutting or using a laser. Dr. Marois will make an incision in the stricture with a special endoscope (urethrotome) which can be passed through the urethra to the stricture. A catheter may be left in the urethra to allow healing while keeping the stricture open. This can be very useful for stricture of the bladder neck or urethra. Following the procedure, there may be blood in the urine and blood leaking through the urethral meatus as well as some discomfort. Occasionally, an infection will require antibiotic treatment.
Dr. Marois is a urologist who is not a member of the Régie de l’Assurance Maladie du Québec (RAMQ). As such, if you require his professional services, you will have to pay directly the Cliniques Marois for the services rendered.
To ensure the smooth running of the clinics aa well as a minimum of courtesy towards other patients and staff members, we ask you to notify us 48 hours in advance for cancelling an appointment, 5 working days for cancelling a minor surgery in the office and 21 working days for major surgery at the CMC. If these deadlines are not respected, a cancellation fee of 50% of the service will be charged.
Change of appointment:
We understand that events occur and schedules change, so we ask patients to give us at least a 24-hour notice for any changes of appointment. We will be happy to reschedule another one for you. Failure to provide such notice within this timeframe will result in a $ 100 fee.
Thank you for your understanding.
