Non-Surgical Treatment Treatments we offer Small Kidney Stones can be treated without surgery by following their doctor’s advice which includes drinking plenty of water, taking medications for fever, discomfort, and vomiting, and certain diet modifications – including less salt and protein. 2. Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL) Treatments we offer This treatment uses sound waves to break down large stones so that they can easily pass down through the ureters and into the bladder. A machine called a lithotripter is used to aim the sound waves directly at the stones, through the body. This treatment takes about 45 minutes to an hour and is performed under general anaesthesia. 3. Tunnel Surgery Treatments we offer This procedure is also called percutaneous nephrolithotomy. Here the stones are removed through a small incision in the back to reach the kidney. A telescope and other surgical instruments are inserted through the incision for the removal of the stones. This surgery is recommended when ESWL is unsuccessful. It is done under general anaesthesia and hospitalization may be required. 4. Ureteroscopy/ Laser Lithotripsy Treatments we offert When a stone is stuck in the ureter or the bladder, the doctors may use an instrument called an ureteroscope to remove it. It is a thin tube with an attached camera that is passed into the bladder and ureter through the urethra. Once the stone is located, a laser or other instruments are used to trap or break the stones into smaller pieces enabling them to pass through the urine. 5. Laser Lithotripsy Treatments we offer This is done to break down stones in the kidneys or ureters so that they can move through the ureters and into the urine. In this procedure, no incisions are performed, and a ureteroscope is put into the ureter to the kidney. Once the stone has been detected by the doctor, a fibre is passed via the ureteroscope to the stone, creating a laser beam. This laser beam fragments the stone, which is subsequently collected in a basket linked to the ureteroscope and removed. If any of the exceedingly small sand-like particles left over from the laser beam breakdown are not removed, they can easily pass through the urine. The doctor may place a stent in the ureter for a few days to keep it from collapsing and to facilitate the flow of stone pieces shattered by the laser beam. 6. Kidney Surgery Treatments we offer Some calcium phosphate stones are caused by overactive parathyroid glands. When too much parathyroid hormone is produced (hyperparathyroidism) by these glands, the calcium levels in the body can rise and kidney stones may develop. Removing the parathyroid gland in such cases can help prevent the formation of kidney stones. Want to know more about the treatment options at Practo Care Surgeries? Request a FREE Consultation What is a Kidney Stone? Kidney stones, also known as renal calculi, are stones that can develop in either the kidneys or the ureters. The kidneys, a pair of bean-shaped organs located in the abdomen, are responsible for removing wastes from the blood through the production of urine. Urine from the kidney travels to the urinary bladder via the ureters, and when the bladder is full, one urinates via the urethra. When urine contains more salts and minerals, they build up in the kidneys or ureter and form kidney stones, which can cause severe pain and discomfort. 1. What causes Kidney Stones? Kidney stones form when there is not enough fluid in the urine to dilute the crystal-forming substances such as oxalates, calcium and uric acids. When there is insufficient fluid to dissolve these crystals, they stick together and form kidney stones. Kidney stones can range in size: from the size of a grain to the size of a chickpea and even up to the size of a golf ball. Following risk factors increase kidney stone development - Drinking far too little water over an extended period of timeHistory of kidney stones in the familyToo much intake of salt, sugar, and proteinBeing a little overweightStomach or intestinal surgeryIntake of drugs that might cause kidneys to produce more urine, such as potassium sparing diuretics (water pills) 2. What are the symptoms and signs of Kidney Stones? Small kidney stone(s) usually do not cause any symptoms as they can pass through the urinary tract and out through urine. The larger stones are cause for concern because they can block the urinary tract and can cause infections and damage to the kidneys. Some of the symptoms include:Pain while passing urinePain in the lower back or abdomenIncreased frequency of passing urine in small amountsFoul smelling urine Blood in urineChange in colour of urine (red, brown, pink, etc.)Fever with or without chillsNausea and vomiting 3. How are Kidney Stones diagnosed? The doctor will consider the medical history in detail and do a thorough physical examination and may advise some blood tests, urine tests and some imaging tests which can show the position and the size of the stone like:X-Ray KUB. This is the x-ray of the kidney, ureter and bladder (KUB) which is done to determine if the stone can be removed by shock wave treatment and also to follow up on the treatment. IVP (Intravenous pyelogram). IVP is a test in which a dye is injected in the veins and an x-ray is taken to find the site of blockage by the stone in the urinary tract. If one is allergic to any dye or its components, it is advisable to inform the doctor previously. Ultrasound of your abdomen. High resolution CT (computed tomography) scan. This test uses a combination of computers and x-rays to see images of the body. Read More Practo Care Surgeries Safe and advanced surgical treatment. Want to know more about our clinics?
