Types of Kidney Stones Surgery

That wave of focus can destroy kidney stones. Currently developed lithotripsy machine.
In this procedure, the wave produced outside the body is made spread through skin and tissue to destroy kidney stones.
These waves break the stones into particles smaller like sand.
There are several different methods of lithotripsy. None of these methods which require an incision at the skin. Most only require a brief anesthetic.
Sometimes, x-rays and ultrasound are also used together with lithotripsy for doctors to target precisely the wave on stone.
During this procedure, the patient may feel pressure on your back. But do not feel any pain at all. This procedure may last for 1 hour.
Lithotripsy may cause some minor complications. Patients may feel a bit sore on the body part that is passed by the wave.
There may be blood in the urine for several days after treatment.
Sometimes, the particles are small stones that come out through the urinary tract causing pain and discomfort.
Sometimes stones are not broken into particles as the sand that may be required surgical procedure to remove it.
To solve the hard rock into small pieces require more than 1 lithotripsy, but there is a possibility the stone is not broken at all.

Endoscopic stone surgery
In this procedure, the doctor will insert a flexible tube into the bladder through the urethra.
The doctor will take the stone which lies in both the ureter and the bladder with the aid of a wire basket to catch these stones.
This procedure is used for the stone that sits at the bottom of the ureter near the bladder.

Open surgery
About 5% of patients with kidney stones are likely to require open surgery, especially if a large stone and stuck in the kidney.
During surgery, the doctor will cut the skin along the 5-10 inches.
Then the doctor will cut the tissue, including kidney stones and retrieve it manually.
Most likely the patient will recover within 4-6 weeks after surgery.
