In brief: Definitely

Surgcal treatment depends upon urethral location plus length of stricture.
Urethral dilatation is invariably temporary and structures recur, unless they are regularly calibrated or dilated. Cystoscopic transurethral incision of stricture is good for "iris" type very short strictures. Bulbar and distal stictures up to 2cm in length can be excised. Longer strictures require inlay or onlay grafts.
