Q: How much does a cystoscopic procedure cost?

A: Cystoscopy can cost between $350 to $3000 without insurance.

Q: How is a ureteroscope different from cystoscope?

A: Ureteroscope has an eyepiece, a rigid or flexible tube in the middle and a tiny lens with a light at the end just like a cystoscope. The only difference is it is longer and thinner to see detailed images of the linings of the ureters and the kidneys.

Q: Is the cystoscopic procedure painful?

A: Cystoscopy is usually not painful when done under general anesthesia. There could be an uncomfortable feeling like wanting to urinate or a burning feeling when the tube is being inserted or released from the urethra if you have only been given a local anesthetic.

Q: Do I have to get admitted for the procedure?

A: If the procedure is to be done under local anesthesia, you donít need an admission for the procedure. If a procedure in addition to cystoscopy is to be performed or planned, then you may require admission as the doctor who is responsible for giving anesthesia will come and see you the day before the surgery.
