More About Kidney Stone Removal Surgery

There are different methods used for removal of kidney stones, depending on the size of the stone, its position and type:

  • Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL).
  • Ureteroscopy
  • Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy and Percutaneous Nephrolithotripsy (PCNL)


Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL)

ESWL uses sound waves to create strong vibrations (shock waves) that break the stones into tiny pieces that can be passed in your urine. 

Procedure of ESWL

  • The complete treatment takes about 45 to 60 minutes.
  • A procedure is performed under local or general anesthesia as there is  some pain 
  • The patient is positioned on an operating table so that the stone is targeted precisely with the shock wave, causing the stone to fragment. Stones are broken that are small enough to pass in the urine. 
  • Sometimes, a stent is inserted via the bladder till the kidney just prior to ESWL. 

After procedure 

  • Drinking plenty of water helps the stone fragments pass. For several weeks, you may pass stone fragments.
  • Following few days asked to strain your urine through a filter to capture the stone pieces for testing 
  • You may pass blood in your urine 
  • May experience a severe cramping pain as shattered stone fragments make their way out. 
  • Oral pain medication and drinking lots of water will help relieve symptoms.

Risks of ESWL procedure

  • ESWL can cause blood in the urine
  • Bruising on the back or abdomen
  • Bleeding around the kidney and other adjacent organs
  • Discomfort as the stone fragments passes through the urinary tract

 Prognosis of ESWL treatment 

About 50-75% patients are found to be free of stones within three months of ESWL treatment. The highest success rates is in those patients with smaller stones ( less than 1 cm).
