“We have inherited an extremely contemporary urology that offers an extremely wide opportunity for resident training. The residency curriculum provides many activities from classical open surgery, laparoscopy, low, high, hydrodynamic and functional endorology. We are, practically, the second department in terms of volume in the country, we have 81 beds and the addressability is extremely pronounced, we have patients from all parts of the country” said Prof. Dr. Mártha Orsolya, head of the Târgu.Mureș Urology Clinic.
In 1957, the head of the Urology Clinic was Prof. Dr. Pál Kotay, with collaborators Dr. Ernő Balogh as primary physician, Dr. Ivor Mártha, Dr. Mátyás Mátyás Jr, and Dr. Jenő Bálint, as specialist physicians. In 1977, Dr. Dorin Nicolescu took over the management, a period in which a series of endoscopic surgical interventions were introduced, the professor being the craftsman of the endowment of the Urology Clinic with a high-performance extracorporeal lithotripsy device at that time. The first extracorporeal lithotripsy for kidney stones took place on July 23, 1991, another step forward being the introduction of urodynamics in the diagnosis and follow-up of various obstructive or neurological disorders of the urinary bladder in 1998.
Dr. Radu Boja introduced for the first time in the country, on January 26, 1986, percutaneous nephrolithotomy in the treatment of renal lithiasis. Then, for the first time, other endoscopic interventions on the upper urinary system are also performed here.
After the retirement of Prof. Dr. Dorin Nicolescu in 2000, the Clinic of Urology is led in turn, in the interval 2000-2001, by Prof. Dr. Virgil Oșan, and from 2001 the head of the clinic becomes Prof. Dr. Radu Boja, Dr. Oșan remaining the head of the ESWL department.
Since 2011, Prof. Dr. Mártha Orsolya has become head of discipline, and since 2012, head physician of the department, and has tried both on the university line and in medical practice to preserve and enrich the beautiful legacy left by his predecessors. Currently, the Clinical Urology Department has 81 beds, an Operating Block with 5 operating rooms and 2 specialized Outpatient Clinics.
The vision and mission of the Mureș County Clinical Hospital is to offer quality services at the highest level.
“The Mureș County Clinical Hospital is a public interest hospital in the network of the Mureș County Council. It is a hospital of local, county, regional, university and postgraduate interest. We have 34 clinical and paraclinical specialties and 12 unique specialties, of which urology is one of them.
