All in-office cystoscopies are performed on awake patients, with some local anesthetic jelly, although it is not usually required.

Cystoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that can be performed in the office with sterile equipment.
Cystoscopy refers to the surgical procedure and the Cystoscope is the small tube, with a camera at its tip, that is inserted into the urethra and bladder.

Most health insurance plans, Medicare, and Medicaid cover cystoscopy for diagnostic evaluation of urinary issues. For patients not covered by health insurance, the cost varies depending on the setting (Office or Ambulatory Surgery Center).

Currently, the majority of cystoscopies are performed using reusable equipment, which requires proper cleaning and disinfection, according to proper techniques, to assure no transmission of infections. These techniques are costly and take significant time. A single-use, disposable, sterile cystoscope removes the risk of infection and usually improves the provider’s ability to perform cystoscopic procedures in a more efficient manner, benefiting both the patient and healthcare personnel.
