Kidney stone treatment

The size, type and location of kidney stones are the deciding factors for the type of treatment. Small stones can pass through the urinary tract without any treatment. Urologists remove kidney stones with the help of Shock Wave Lithotripsy, Cystoscopy and Ureteroscopy, to blast the stones into small pieces which can pass out of the body. Percutaneous nephrolithotomy is surgical procedure to remove the stones.
