What is Minimally Invasive Kidney Stone Removal?
Using minimally invasive endoscopic or laparoscopic surgery, the Urologist can look inside the kidney with a small scope and remove the kidney stones or break them up with a laser and remove the pieces. It is minimally invasive. The Urologist can often insert the scope through the urethra, avoiding incisions. If incision is required it is very small. This is typically an outpatient procedure, and you can go home the same day.
Benefits of Minimally Invasive Kidney Stone Removal
Compared to traditional surgery, minimally invasive endoscopic surgery takes less time, causes less pain and less blood loss, and recovery is quicker.
