Kidney stone can present with a painful or a silent episode most patients feel pain below ribs and going to back, and most patients also feel burning and see red colored urine.
Kidney or stone in ureter (tube) or passage can lead to damage to kidney if left untreated for a long time (about more than a year or more).This damage can be in form of poor function or deep infection to kidney tissue (pyelonephritis).
Few stones do pass out with the help of medicines but they have to be small ( say about 3 to 6 mm).Still not all stones of this size will pass out by medicines.
Medicines play only a minimal role to act as an expulsive agent, but only if the stone is small upto size of 5 or 6 mm in which chances of passing out are 40%.
These are treated by advanced Lasers and shockwaves treatment. What type of surgery is needed and what is the hospital stay? In these 90% are treated with any cut and mostly as a day care procedure.

Routinely we do not use dj stenting if patient can follow post procedure advice.
Charges for stone removal depend on procedure ,room stay consultation fee , consumables, medicines etc and the procedure selected, but we at Urolife do not have separate charges for all above and for clarity charge quite less and in a fixed package .the packages are told prior to procedure during consultation.
Invasive procedures are fast and precise but involve anesthesia, blood transfusion (in few cases) but if you already have had a surgical removal it’s much needed to go for a non cut procedure depending on your suitability.
Such small 2 to 3 mm cases are best treated by us by ultrasound guided lithotripsy whereas other hospitals might opt for RIRS technology. RIRS is quite expensive and minimally invasive.

Medicines can only expel small 4 to 5 mm stones possibly however larger stones need fragmentation and removal in a single step.
Diagnosis will be primarily done to establish the location and size of stone and hardness too needs to be established in certain cases of ESWL .After blood tests including kidney function and bleeding time, the procedure options will be discussed with patient and decided by the specialist doctors.
Laser stone removal and ESWL along with MiniPCNL procedures have been refined and are use in India.
Single and multiple stones of various chemical compositions, size and shapes can be treated using different technology.
Yes recurrent stones can be treated, however modalities might differ because of previous surgeries if any. This treatment plan is finalised during consultation.
Lasers are used as latest option worldwide due to its fragmenting property which is free of blood loss and with no down time .Types of laser differ in different stone removal techniques.
Scientific and non-invasive (no cut ) procedure to remove Kidney, Ureteric and Bladder Stones without surgery using sound waves .
Flexible uretroscopy ,RIRS .cystoscopy PCNL MINIPCNL are all techniques where no cut is given.
No cutting, no damage to kidney or other vital organs, international popular procedure....
Most cases in Urolife are treated by ESWL and gives result of stone free status after one or two sessions which are confirmed by ultrasound.
In plain terms uretroscopy is the procedure where a ureteroscope (instrument with a light source and laser ) is used and URS is the treatment using this to remove ureteric stones .Similarly RIRS (Retrograde intrarenal surgery )is a similar process wherein a flexible ureteroscope is used and this is especially done to fragment and remove renal stones.
Hence no rest is needed and patient can resume work within two days.
The treatment time for ESWL or lithotripsy is one hour per sitting after which the patient can resume normal activity ,the total number of sittings will be decided by doctor in consultation .URS ,RIRS take one hour duration in process and patient is admitted for one night , whereas PCNL and MiniPCNL takes 1 and half hour approximately .However these timings can vary in complex cases.
Patients are screened for kidney function and once that is normal along with anaesthetic clearance these procedures can be performed.
The stone is taken out using a vacuum there and then and few left over particles get drained out through normal urinary passage .J stent facilitates this process.
Urologists, imaging specialist along with nephrologists and anaesthetists work as team in each case. In complicated cases other specialists opinion is also sought.
No, because stones are converted to small 2 to 3 mm particles and they easily flow through normal passage whereas most of it is sucked out during the process.
Yes, the chances are strong as the process of stone formation in body is not addressed ,however in Urolife ,proper stone analysis will be followed by diet charting and medications to stop recurrences.
In Urolife the results after each techniques are confirmed by ultrasound and x rays ,in certain cases CT scans too are needed.
Different centres follow specific protocols depending on technology available in hand , and in Urolife ESWL and ureteroscopy are first line treatments as far as possible they are non surgical.
Cost of ESWL ranges depending on location and size from 15 thousand to 35 thousand excluding the stenting cost.
These stones obstruct the flow of urine and lead to stagnation causing infection in kidneys and tract and eventually loss of renal function which becomes serious.
Several food and water compounds do not get metabolised and precipitate as insoluble particles which gets build up in course of time leading to stones. Cetain metabolic disturbances in body too are responsible and all these are part of prevention protocol in Urolife centre.
Yes high oxalate and calcium rich foods are responsible for stone formation, whereas few synthetic compounds in preservatives too have a role.
It appears that stones can form in as short a period of time as three months or can take long depending on water intake and climatic factors and dietary habits.
Stones in kidney or ureter can pass out naturally by drinking lots of water however the size should not be more than 4 mm .Larger stones upto 6 mm too are known to pass out naturally but can cause lot of pain and bleeding or internal abrasion and trying this out is full of such risks.
It is a hollow light weight tube lesser than the diameter of ureter which is placed from kidney to urinary bladder to ensure proper passage of urine and particles.
It’s a simple procedure done in aseptic conditions where the tip of stent is held to be taken out the patient is able to walk away after passing urine once.
In safe hands this should not happen until a stone fragment is left which causes pain.
Overnight fasting and few blood tests is all that is needed and patient can resume food and water intake the same day.
