Lithotripsy, an old but robust technology. Appreciate how the smaller fragment is dancing with each shock wave...
Lithotripsy or ESWL (Extra Corporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy) is the process of breaking stones inside the patient‘s body through the use of shock waves. Shock waves are produced by a sophisticated machine called a Lithotripter and used for the treatment of kidney stones. The shock waves thus produced are focused on
the kidney stone inside the patient‘s body, with the help of ultrasound. The shock waves break the stone into fine, sand—like particles, which are then passed out in urine. These shock waves are harmless to the human body.
The Kidney Centre offers best in class lithotripsy services.
