Department of Urology came into existence in 1978 when urology was separated from general surgery. Dr. D.S. Pardanani became the first full time professor and head of recognized urology in 1980. Department had grown by leaps and bounds in the following years with many technological advances and firsts to its credit.
It was chosen as the zonal center of excellence (COE) for microsurgical recanalization project in collaboration with UNFPA & AVSC. The first open operative workshop in urology with live demonstration of operative procedures in India was conducted in the KEM hospital in 1981. It was the first teaching department to start PCNL in India and conducted a live workshop on the same in May 1985. Since its inception, we have performed vast number of endourological, minimally invasive, oncosurgical, reconstructive as well as live and cadaver renal transplants which are among the highest in the state. It was a first public hospital in Maharashtra to have performed a pediatric swap transplant couple of years ago.  We were the only second public hospital in India to have started state of art cadaver lab to train young urologists in basic and advanced surgeries a year ago and have since conducted 5-6 workshops till date. A state of art seminar hall with latest projection and audio systems for academic activities was recently inaugurated couple of weeks ago. We have advanced holmium laser machine, Dornier’s ESWL machine as well as 3D laparoscopic system providing the most advanced treatment to patients from all strata of society at a nominal rate. We aim to organize a workshop to train urologists in laparoscopic surgeries in cadaver in near future. Discussions are also ongoing for procurement of robotic system which will be of great use especially in onco-urosurgical cases.
