Nanotechnology, implying the engineering of miniscule molecules, of the sizes of 1 nm – 1000 nm, to effect macromolecular changes in various fields of human life, so as to bring about betterment in the quality of human lives, has garnered tremendous interest worldwide. Medical science has been the fore-runner in this regard and the field of Urology has embraced this technology with open arms. The current article highlights this very scenario, explicitly depicting the uses of nano-molecules as well as looks into what the future of this exciting technological advance can hold for us and whether they are really the way forward, so as to say: Is Small really the new Big?
