Surgical options
Your Practo Care doctor will plan the treatment according to the size of the stones
  • For small to medium-sized stones located anywhere in the urinary tract
  • Performed under local or general anaesthesia
  • A ureteroscope is inserted into the bladder and ureter
  • Once the stones are located, lasers or other instruments are used to snare (trap) or break the stones into smaller pieces, so that they can be passed through urine
  • For the removal of larger stones (>5mm)
  • Performed under local or general anaesthesia
  • Sound waves are used to break down the stones into smaller pieces, so that they can easily pass down through the ureters and into the bladder
  • For stones that are larger than 2cm
  • Performed under general anaesthesia
  • Surgical instruments are inserted through a small incision in your back for the removal of the stones
  • Performed with laser and requires no incisions
  • A ureteroscope is passed into your urinary tract
  • The stones are broken into small pieces with the help of laser beams
  • A stent (a tiny tube) may be placed in the ureters for a few days to ease the passage of the stone fragments
  • When the parathyroid gland produces excess parathyroid hormone (hyperparathyroidism), it increases the calcium levels in the blood causing kidney stones
  • In such cases, the parathyroid gland is removed
When the stones are small (<5mm in diameter), the doctor would recommend
1Medication
  • Painkillers - reduce pain
  • NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) - bring down the swelling
  • Antibiotics - prevent bacterial/secondary infections
  • Diuretics - increase the frequency and volume of urine
2Lifestyle Modifications
  • Drink 7 to 8 glasses of water per day to flush out the small stones
  • Modify your diet with low salt and low protein

FAQs
For the treatment of kidney stones, you can consult a urologist (a specialist who diagnoses and treats problems related to the urinary tract) or a nephrologist (one who treats conditions affecting the kidneys).
Yes, drinking plenty of fluids or water is recommended for flushing out small kidney stones and preventing the new ones from forming.
There is a possibility that kidney stones may recur. Some lifestyle changes such as drinking more water, limiting the intake of sodium and animal proteins, and staying physically active help prevent kidney stones and avoid recurrence.
Complications with kidney stone surgeries are rare; obstruction or injury to the ureters or urinary tract infection are possible.
DepenContact your doctor immediately in case of
1. Severe pain
2. Blood in the urine
3. Vomiting
4. Fever with/without chills

I’d definitely recommend Practo Care for their support at every step of my pilonidal sinus treatment. The doctor was highly experienced and the surgery went well. The team took care of everything from day one to the day of discharge very efficiently.
