The presence of Stones in the human body can cause immense pain and discomfort. It becomes essential to get rid of the stones so that the normal activities of life continue uninterrupted.

Conventional medical treatment options for stones include:


This is one of the most common methods currently employed in the removal of kidney stones. This procedure involves establishing a track from the skin into the kidney through which instruments are passed inside and the stone is broken into smaller portions and removed. It can be used for stones of any size. Multiple tracts may be required for complex stones. The incision used for making these tracts is 5 to 10 mm. and does not require to be stitched generally. Hospitalization is usually required for 2 to 3 days and the patient can resume normal work in a weeks time. The only major risk of this operation is bleeding which is unpredictable and can occur in up to 1% of the patients requiring a blood transfusion.


With refinements in techniques and miniaturizing of instruments, mini and ultra mini PCNL are the true KEY-HOLE surgeries. These techniques can be used to remove stones as small as 7-8 mm (provided that they are visible in X-rays) using smaller probes and laser. The post-operative recovery is early, blood loss is less, the hospital stay is short and patients can resume their routine work as early as they will recover.


RIRS also called Retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) is the latest in stone removal with the least intervention and is completely scarless. This involves approaching the kidney stone using a viewing fiber optic endoscope and when this reaches the stone laser energy is passed through it which fragments the renal stone into sand-like particles and this is taken out via the same endoscope. This procedure is done under spinal anesthesia in the majority of cases and as the procedure is performed through the urinary tract, no cut is given anywhere. This outpatient procedure is mainly done for removing renal stones upto 18 mm.


URSL also called Ureterorenoscopic Lithotripsy. In those instances when the stone is stuck within the bladder or Ureter, doctors use a device called Ureteroscope for its removal. It is a non-invasive method as there is no incision required. It’s a small wire with a snapper integrated, which is inserted within the Urethra and moved within the bladder. A laser fiber is used to transmit the Holmium energy that breaks up the kidney stone and the surgeon removes a few broken pieces through urethra using a small basket. Smaller pieces pass through urination.  Sometimes, doctors insert a tube known as a stent between urethra and kidney to make it easy to pass kidney stones and improve healing.

Cystolithotripsy (Bladder Stone) :

Bladder stones are removed by a procedure known as cystolithotripsy. In this procedure , a cystoscope is passed through natural urinary passage into the bladder to visualise the stone. In this procedure , a cystoscope is passed through natural urinary passage into the bladder to visualize the stone. The duration of cystolithotripsy depends upon the size of the stone. All stones which are less than a centimeter can be removed as early as 5 minutes however largest stones may require a lengthy a procedure of about 30 to 60 minutes

PCLT (Bladder Stone) :

PCLT (Percutaneous Cystolithotripsy) and Cystolitholapaxy is procedure for bladder stones. In this method after giving anesthesia a small endoscope is passed through the urinary passage or directly thorough the small hole made over the bladder. Even very large stones are easily fragmented and removed endoscopically without giving large incisions. Patient requires only short hospital stay.
