ESWL - Kidney Stones Treatment

Lithotripsy is the breaking of kidney stones by pressure waves, these waves are focused onto the kidney stone with the use of ultrasound and X-ray. The pressure waves travel through the body tissues without damaging them and reduce the kidney stone to a fine gravel which may be passed naturally in urine over a period of time, usually with no pain. Lithotripsy is usually delivered over 3 treatments each lasting approximately 45 mins over a period of weeks or until the kidney stone is broken down so it can be passed naturally.
