The Urethra

The urethra is the tube through which urine passes from the bladder. It starts at the bladder, passes through the centre of the prostate, to enter the penis and finishes at the external meatus (the slit at the end of the penis).

Because of its important role in the urinary system, combined with the delicate nature of the tissue, urethral surgery requires special expertise and training to achieve good outcomes.
