By utilizing state-of-the-art technologies and innovative techniques, we provide personalized care tailored to meet individual patient needs.

Understanding UPJ Obstruction

UPJ obstruction occurs when there is a blockage or narrowing at the point where the renal pelvis connects to the ureter, affecting the flow of urine from the kidney to the bladder. This condition can lead to urinary tract infections, renal damage, and other complications if left untreated. At MUIR DIABLO OCCUPATIONAL MEDICINE, we recognize the importance of early detection and prompt intervention to prevent further complications.

State-of-the-Art Diagnosis

Our team of experienced specialists utilizes advanced diagnostic tools and techniques to accurately diagnose UPJ obstruction. Through a comprehensive evaluation, including detailed medical history, physical examination, imaging studies (such as ultrasound, CT scan, or MRI), and specialized tests, we are able to identify the severity and extent of the obstruction. This allows us to develop an individualized treatment plan tailored to each patient's unique condition.

Personalized Treatment and Management

At MUIR DIABLO OCCUPATIONAL MEDICINE, we believe in a multidisciplinary approach to UPJ obstruction treatment and management. Our team consists of urologists, nephrologists, and other specialists who work collaboratively to provide comprehensive care. Treatment options may include:

  • Conservative Management: For mild cases, close monitoring of symptoms and periodic imaging studies may be recommended.
  • Minimally Invasive Procedures: We offer advanced endoscopic procedures like ureteroscopy or balloon dilation to relieve the obstruction.
  • Laparoscopic or Robotic Surgery: Complex cases may require surgical intervention to repair or reconstruct the UPJ, restoring normal urine flow.
