Get rid of kidney stones in a day with Laser Lithotripsy or Shock Wave Lithotripsy

Both Laser Lithotripsy and Shock Wave Lithotripsy are modern and technically advanced procedures that basically work by crushing the stones into smaller pieces so that they can be flushed out through the urine. The only difference between laser lithotripsy and shock wave lithotripsy lies in the technology used for breaking the stones.

How does laser lithotripsy work?

In laser lithotripsy or laser ureteroscopy, the surgeon inserts a small tube caller ureteroscope into the ureter through the urethra. The surgeon then examines the urinary tract and looks for the stone. Once the stone is found, the surgeon aims laser energy on it to crush it into small fragments, some of which are removed through a bucket like surgical equipment and the rest are removed along with the urine.

How does the shockwave lithotripsy procedure go?

Similarly, in Shockwave lithotripsy, the surgeon uses shockwave pulses to break the stone into smaller fragments. After this, the doctor asks you to drink plenty of fluids so as to facilitate the easy removal of the stones.

Common Benefits

Both laser lithotripsy and shockwave lithotripsy are performed under the administration of anesthesia to allow minimal movement. Depending on the type of anesthesia used, you are allowed to go back to your home within 2-4 hours after the surgery. This means that you can avoid the inconvenient hospital stays. 

Upon reaching home, you just have to rest and drink a lot of water, and the crushed stones will eventually pass, thereby getting you rid of all the associated troubles within less than 24 hours.

Also, these procedures are not at all invasive and inflict absolutely no pain. There is no risk of postoperative problems which means that your recovery will be as smooth as possible. You’ll be good to go back to your routine activities within just 1-2 days.
