Laser Kidney Stone Treatment

Flexible Ureteroscopic Laser

This procedure is also done under spinal or general anesthesia and needs only one day of hospital stay and can resume work with in 3 days.

This procedure is an approach that uses an instrument to break kidney stones into smaller parts. For the laser approach, a physician inserts a optical fiber often no bigger than a hair into the patient's ureter, drawing the fiber upward until it reaches the kidney stones. The laser is activated, and the energy burst causes the stone to break apart while leaving the ureter's tissue unharmed.

Once the stones burst, the remaining pieces are passed through the ureter and expelled in the urine. A physician also may opt to insert a catheter that removes the pieces immediately following the laser procedure.
