What are Kidney Stone?

Kidney stones are deposits of calcium and other minerals in the kidney. These deposits increase in size over a period of time to form a stone. They can be of different sizes and shapes. Stones range from as small as 3.0 mm to as large as 30.0 mm. They can form in men, women and children. Kidney Stones occur in about 15-20 % of the general population. They can occur at any age but most commonly occur between the ages of 20 and 40. Stone formers have about 50% potential risk of recurrence.

Small Stones less than 4 mm may pass out spontaneously. Your doctor will prescribe some medications to facilitate the spontaneous expulsion, and monitor you closely at regular intervals.

For larger stones, there are various treatment options available. The simplest and the most safest option is ESWL (Extra corporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy). ESWL is a simple day care non surgical procedure where a large stone is broken into small fragments which then pass out with the help of medications.

The surgical options include PCNL and RIRS. These procedures are minimally invasive which requires anasthesia.

Your doctor will assess and give you the best treatment options based on the stone size, location and hardness of the stone.

What is ESWL?

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL) is a non invasive treatment option available for kidney stones less than 2 cms. Electromagnetic waves from outside the body are targeted on to the stone. These waves break the stones into small fragments of 3-5 mm, which are expected to pass out in the urine within couple of weeks.

Who should be treated with ESWL?

Patients diagnosed with a kidney or an ureteric stone upto 2 cms in size can be treated by ESWL.

Why opt for ESWL treatment?

Non surgical treatment is always preferred over surgical treatment. ESWL is the most effective non surgical treatment for kidney stones with a success rates upto 90%.

What is the cost of ESWL?

Its 30k, irrespective of the stone size, number & location.
