Kidney and Ureter Stone Treatment and Removal

Overview

The treatment depends on stone size, location and patient health. Initially, pain management and medications to facilitate stone passage are advised. For larger stones, non-invasive procedures like Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL) break stones into smaller fragments. Minimally invasive techniques include ureteroscopy, where a small scope retrieves or fragments stones using laser energy. For larger kidney stones, Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL) where a small incision in the back is made to access and remove the stone. Post-operative care ensures effective treatment and minimises recurrence.
