What's kidney stone treatment?


Urology surgery:

It is a surgical treatment of diseases of the male and female urinary tract.

Open surgery to treat kidney stones:

  • Recovery usually takes several weeks.

Ureteroscopic kidney stone removal:

  • Ureteroscopic is passed through the urethra and bladder into the ureter.
  • If the stone is small it is removed and if it is large it is fragmented.
