Kidney Surgery Due to Lithiasis or Kidney Stones
Kidney surgery is used to solve the problems of stones or kidney stones
through different techniques:
- By lithotripsy, which disintegrates kidney stones smaller than two centimeters
by ultrasonic waves that pulverize the stones.
- By semi-rigid ureteroscopy, introducing a small camera through the urethra
to the point where the stones are, to fragment them with laser technology.
- Percutaneous nephrolithotomy, accessing the kidney through one or more
holes in the skin of no more than one centimeter, to visualize the
calculus and fragment it with laser technology.
