There are several methods for removing kidney stones, depending on factors such as the size and location of the stone, as well as the patient’s overall health. Some common methods include:

  1. Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL): This procedure uses shock waves to break up the kidney stone into smaller pieces, which can then pass more easily through the urinary tract.

  2. Ureteroscopy: A thin scope is inserted through the urethra and bladder into the ureter (the tube that carries urine from the kidney to the bladder). Tools can be passed through the scope to grasp and remove the stone, or to break it up with laser energy.

  3. Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL): This procedure involves making a small incision in the back and using a nephroscope to locate and remove the kidney stone. It is often used for larger stones or when other methods are not effective.

  4. Open Surgery: In rare cases, particularly large or complex kidney stones may require traditional open surgery to remove them.

It’s important to consult with a healthcare professional to determine the most appropriate treatment option for individual cases.
