A ureteroscopy is a diagnostic procedure, performed using a tiny video camera, that can pinpoint a range of problems in the urinary tract and surrounding areas. An ureteroscope is used to determine the cause of bladder troubles or bladder incontinence. It can look for bladder stones and problems within the urinary tract and kidney.

A ureteroscopy, also known as an upper urinary tract endoscopy, is a minimally invasive, in-office test. It is performed by inserting the ureteroscope, or small camera, into the urethra and moving it through the bladder and upper urinary tract.

Once in place, the ureteroscope examines the urinary tract for any malignancies or abnormalities and your physician can determine the best course of action for their removal. The most common finding of an ureteroscopy are stones of the urinary tract, kidneys, or bladder, which can make urination painful and difficult.

If kidney stones or bladder stones are found, there are a few different courses of treatment available based on your individual condition and your physician’s recommendation.
