About Kidney Stone Removal

Kidney Stone Removal is a procedure involves breaking the stones using techniques like lithotripsy, ureteroscopy or nephrolithotomy. In most cases, these stones can be passed out of the body through urine once they are broken into smaller pieces.

There are 3 main techniques for removing kidney stones:

1. Lithotripsy is the most widely used procedure for kidney stone removal. It can be performed in following 3 ways

  • Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL) is a non-invasive procedure. This procedure is generally used for soft stones preferably smaller than 2cm diameter.
  • Laser Lithotripsy is a surgical procedure. Larger and harder stones can be disintegrated using laser lithotripsy. It is generally advisable to go for laser lithotripsy for kidney stones. 
  • Holmium Laser Lithotripsy is an improved laser lithotripsy procedure.

2. Ureteroscopy is a surgical procedure performed by inserting ureteroscope in the urethra.

3. Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy is used when lithotripsy and ureteroscopy does not prove sucessful. It is used for comparatively larger kidney stones.
