Medical Expulsive Therapy
Medication is given with the intent to spontaneously pass suitably sized ureteral stone.
Ureteroscopy / Flexible Uretero-Renoscopy (URS / F-URS)
A very thin tube (ureteroscope) is passed into the urinary tract to the stone’s location, where instruments, such as a stone basket or Holmium laser, can then be used to remove the stone or break it up for easier removal.
Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL)
This commonly used procedure uses shock waves to break up a kidney stone. It is the least invasive surgical technique and is generally performed as a daycare procedure.
Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL)
This surgical technique is used for the largest types of stones. It generally requires a small (1 cm) incision at the side or back and the use of an endoscope to remove the kidney stone.
