Funded by the Beat Drugs Fund of the Hong Kong SAR Government and with the support from the Hospital Authority, the Youth Urological Treatment Centre (YUTC) was established by the Department of Surgery of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) in December 2011 at the Prince of Wales Hospital.


YUTC is dedicated to raising the public awareness of the detrimental effects of psychotropic substance abuse, particularly ketamine, on the urinary tract. YUTC encourages youth abusers to seek early medical treatment from our fast-track service and to quit drugs early as the ultimate solution.


YUTC provides early urological assessment and treatment to young abusers under the age of 30 who suffer from ketamine-associated urinary tract dysfunction. At the first consultation, patients are evaluated by non-invasive investigations including urine analysis, blood tests, uroflowmetry and bladder scan, and receive integrated anti-inflammatory therapy as first-line treatment.

YUTC telephone hotline is a territory-wide service for fast-track appointment booking. Patients or their social workers are all welcome to call the hotline to make an appointment without the need of any medical referrals.
