Urology

UROLOGY [Greek: ouron, urine +logos, discourse] Lithotomists were the earliest surgeons and were well established during Hippocratic times. Ammonius (283–247 BC), a surgeon of Alexandria, described the method of extraction of stone in 240 BC. Rhazes (850–932) (865–925), an Arabian physician, devised bronze and lead catheters with lateral holes to drain the pus. Urological surgery was established as a specialty around 1790 by Pierre Joseph Desault (1744–1795) and François Chopart (1743–1795) of Paris. Leopold Ritter von Dittel (1815–1898), professor of surgery at Vienna specialized in urology, and described enucleation of the enlarged lateral lobes of the prostate through an external incision in 1860. Joaquín Dominguez Albarrán (1860–1912), Cuban-born French professor of medicine, wrote on surgery of urinary passages in 1909. An electrically lit cystoscope was invented by Max Nitz (1848–1906) of Berlin in 1877, and use of anesthetic in urology (cocaine) was introduced by Fessenden Nott Otis (1825–1900) in 1884. Jean Casimir Felix Guyon(1831–1920), professor at Paris published his lectures on urology in 1881 and a treatise on the surgical diseases of the bladder and prostate in 1888. James Brown (1854–1895) of John Hopkins Hospital catheterized male ureters in 1893. A double channeled urethral catheter, Bozemann  catheter, was designed by American surgeon, Nathan Bozemann (1825–1905).
