Renal Stones

Overview

The hospital treats 1500 stone patients each year and it is a matter of pride that over 90% of patients have 100% clearance. We have several modalities for treating stone diseases. These modalities include

  • Lithotripsy(ESWL)
  • Percutaneous Nephrolithotripsy (PCNL)
  • Uretero-Renoscopy (URS)
  • Open surgery

Each modality, on its own, has 80 85% clearance rate. But we have tried to achieve our current results by using a combination of modalities and energies like Ultrasound, Laser, Electro-Hydrolic Lithotripsy, and Swiss Lithoclast. The modality used depends upon the socio-economic condition of the patient, but at the same time not compromising on the quality of treatment.
