Do I need follow-up care after ureteroplasty?

Follow-up is necessary after every surgery so that the doctor can check how well your recovery is going and evaluate the success of your surgery.

Follow-up is necessary after an ureteroplasty procedure and it is important to schedule the appointments as your doctor recommended.

Your first follow-up should take place 1 or 2 weeks after the surgery. Your sutures or staples will be removed during the follow-up appointment.

The stent will be removed at the next follow-up appointment which will take place approximately 4 weeks after the surgery.

An imaging test should be taken approximately 3 months after the intervention.
