Kidney Stone Removal (2015)


What is kidney stone removal - lithotripsy?

Kidney stones do not always have to be removed surgically. Lithotripsy is an outpatient procedure used to break up larger kidney stones into smaller parts so they can be passed out of the body in urine. This is done with loud high-energy sound waves that do not hurt the body but break the stones into smaller pieces.
