Kidney Stones Removal

Kidney stones can be as small as a grain of sand and as large as a golf ball. Small ones can pass through the urinary tract, but the larger ones need removal. Kidney stones are hard deposits made of minerals like calcium or waste products like uric acid. These stones can also get stuck in your urinary tract, which requires surgical removal.

Kidney stones removal is of four types:

  • Ureteroscopy
  • Shock Wave Lithotripsy
  • Nephrolithotripsy
  • Open Surgery
  • Price: 50$
  • Recovery: 1 Week
  • Bruising Visible: 2 Week
  • Drained: Yes

Who Is The Ideal Candidate For Kidney Stones Removal?

You may need a kidney stone removal surgery to get rid of your kidney stones if:

  • Your kidney stone is very large and can not pass on its own
  • You’re suffering from unbearable pain
  • The stone is blocking the urine flow
  • You have urinary tract infections because of the stone


Before the procedure, your doctor will discuss your medical history and order tests like an X-ray, CT scan, ultrasound, blood tests, and urine tests.

Your doctor will ask you to:

  • Avoid smoking before surgery
  • Stop taking blood thinning medications
  • Not eating or drinking after midnight before the surgery

Surgery Details

Ureteroscopy: During Ureteroscopy, the doctor inserts a thin, flexible scope to find and remove the stones. No cuts are made.

Shock Wave Lithotripsy: A procedure that utilizes ultrasound energy to break down the kidney stone into smaller fragments for them to pass through your urine easier.

Nephrolithotripsy: This procedure involves using a small tube to reach the stone and break it down with high-frequency sound waves.

Open surgery: Open surgery is performed when your stone is large or can’t be removed with other treatments.

After Surgery

After your surgery, you may experience the following symptoms:

  • Soreness and bruising if you underwent external shock wave lithotripsy
  • Discomfort and a small amount of blood in your urine for a few days
  • Pain and nausea when the remaining stone fragments pass into the urine
  • Incision and surgical pain if you had a surgical procedure

Home Recovery

The recovery time depends on the type of procedure you go through. Following are some common after-care instructions:

  • Take the prescribed medications to alleviate the pain
  • You may also be asked to use a filter to collect pieces of kidney stones if they pass into the urine
  • Increase the level of physical activity gradually
  • Drink plenty of fluid
  • Take adequate rest
  • Keep checking up with your doctor
