Hi @pmwilson, and welcome to Connect. @sufferingchris has had pyeloplasty surgery and can hopefully share experiences with you to help you prepare for your surgery next week.

It seems that pyeloplasty is an efficient procedure for treating UPJ obstruction in adults. Here is a recent journal article about the procedure:

Wilson, we look forward to getting to know more about you. What led to your needing pyeloplasty surgery? Will it be done laparoscopically?

Thank you for the information. Robotic pyeloplasty has been recommended to treat hydronephrosis caused by a blood vessel blocking the flow of urine from my right kidney. A stent was inserted and the surgery is to provide a long term solution. I am concerned about the measured 22% function in my right kidney and hope to see it improve.
