Kidney stones can be treated safely and effectively without surgery with the treatment modality called lithotripsy. ESWL or lithotripsy produces sound waves that focus on the stone and breaks the soft stones into dust.
Lithotripsy is a painless procedure that does not require any cut, anaesthesia or even a needle prick. Patient can go back home immediately after the procedure after passing urine. The procedure often requires multiple sittings and therefore patience is the key requirement for this procedure. Many stones do break in a single sitting itself but larger stones may take 3 to 4 sittings each of which is done after a gap of one week.
