Urinary calculus treatment

There is a wide range of options for treatment of urinary tract calculus. However, the composition of the stones, their size and nature as well as their position are always decisive when choosing the best possible treatment. We discuss with the patient the results of the examination and agree on the appropriate procedure:

  • Lithotripsy of urinary calculus (Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy = ESWL)
  • Minimally invasive stone treatment, performed endoscopically through the urethra (removal of bladder, ureter and kidney stones or lithotripsy using holmium laser)
  • Kidney stone removal using percutaneous nephrolitholapaxy (PNL, also mini-PNL)
  • In special cases, operative removal of urinary stones
