A urologist in Jaipur manages kidney stones the most frequently in common practice. For small stones, we have a medical/ conservative approach and for larger stones that cannot pass, we have a surgical approach. We have all the machines to manage kidney stones.
The procedure is commonly called laser treatment of kidney stones. Stones are broken with help of rays or shock waves focused on them. There is no need for anesthesia and most patients are able to walk home after just a few hours.
The endoscope is passed through the urethra and the stone is approached and broken with a machine and removed. The procedure is done under anesthesia and the patient is discharged the same day or the next day.
Under x-ray or USG guidance, a small hole is made in the kidney to insert an endoscope; the stone is located, broken with a machine, and removed. The procedure takes about a day or two and the patient returns home.
Patients who wish to avoid puncturing the kidney or dealing with a small kidney stone can take advantage of this two step solution. A DJ stent is inserted into the kidney to widen the passage, preparing it for the introduction of a flexible scope 15 days later. The scope is used to break up the stone using Holmium laser technology. The procedure may involve higher costs because of its two steps and need for specialized equipment.
