Kidney Stone Treatment

Stone size, the number of stones and their location are perhaps the most important factors in deciding the appropriate treatment for a patient with kidney stones. The composition of a stone, if known, can also affect the choice of treatments. Options for surgical treatment of stones include:

  • Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL)
  • Ureteroscopy (URS)
  • Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL)
  • Open or laparoscopic surgery
