A kidney stone is a solid mass formed from substances that are normally found in the urine, but become highly concentrated when there are not enough liquids to flush them out in urine. Treatments range from no treatment, to medications, to shock wave lithotripsy or ureteroscopy, to surgery (nephrolithotomy).
There are 3 types of minimally invasive surgery for kidney stones – ureteroscopy, shock wave lithotripsy, and percutaneous nephrolithotomy.Ureteroscopy: to perform this procedure, a small instrument, called an ureteroscope, is inserted in the urethra, through the bladder, and into the ureter. This instrument allows stones to be seen and then retrieved in a surgical “basket” or broken apart using a laser. These smaller pieces of kidney stones are then more easily able to exit the body through the urinary tract.Shock wave lithotripsy: in this procedure, the patient is placed on a special type of surgical table or tub. High-energy shock waves are sent through water to the stone(s) location. The shock waves break apart the stones, which are then more easily able exit the body through the urinary tract.Percutaneous nephrolithotomy: when kidney stones can’t be treated by the other procedures – either because there are too many stones, the stones are too large or heavy, or because of their location – percutaneous nephrolithotomy is considered.
