    Kidney Stones Removal in Ahmedabad

    Kidney stones form as a result of excess salts and minerals in the kidneys. This leads to an increased concentration of toxic waste in the urine. When this toxic waste exceeds fluid concentration, it leads to the formation of kidney stones. They are not always painful and some patients can barely feel any pain or discomfort.

    If the stones travel to the ureter, patients can suffer immense sudden pain in the lower back or even cause serious complications. Kidney stones can vary in size, they can be as small as a granule of sand to the size of a golf ball.

    Kidney Stone Treatment in Ahmedabad

    Diagnosis for Kidney Stones

    You should reach out to a specialist doctor as soon as you notice the symptoms of kidney stones.

    The specialist doctor will discuss your medical history to get a better understanding of your condition. They may perform a physical examination and ask you to undergo some imaging tests for the proper diagnosis of the size and the location of the kidney stones.

    In addition to imaging tests, your doctor may also conduct some blood and urine tests to get a detailed insight into the condition of your kidney stones.

    And, before providing the treatment, your doctor will ask you a few questions about your diet and check for where you feel the bouts of pain the most.

    4 Methods for Kidney Stones Removal

    After the results of the diagnosis, the doctor will initiate and advise the best-suited kidney stones treatment according to the condition.

    • ESWL (Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy) – It uses shock waves to break the kidney stone into small pieces that can move through the urinary tract & pass from the body.
    • Lithotripsy (Ureteroscopy) – In this, the ureteroscope is passed through the urethra and into the ureter to remove a stone using laser energy.
    • RIRS (Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery) – It is a procedure for doing surgery within the kidney using a flexible ureteroscope to remove the upper ureter and small kidney stones.
    • PCNL (Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy) – It is a minimally invasive procedure in which large kidney stones are removed through a small incision in the skin.

    How to pass stones at home?

    If the size of the stone is small, you can pass the stone at home by increasing your fluid intake or prescribing medications from the doctor. You can consult your doctor for various home remedies for kidney stones removal. However, surgical methods are the most effective way to remove renal stones.

    How can I remove my renal stones?

    The most effective method to remove your renal stones is via surgical techniques. However, if the size of stones is not big enough, the doctor usually recommends a high water intake and may prescribe medications to reduce the pain during the expulsion of the stones.

    Does whey protein cause kidney stones?

    Yes, people with diets that are heavy on synthetic protein such as whey are at more risk of developing kidney stones in the long run. Protein-rich foods can also have a high concentration of fat, which increases the risk of several heart diseases and type 2 diabetes.

    Does eating slate pencils cause kidney stones?

    Slate is never intended to be eaten or consumed. Slate pencils are made up of calcium-rich minerals. People who eat slate pencils in small amounts are comparatively at a lower risk than people who consume slate on a daily basis. However, if the person is eating too many slate pencils, it may lead to several health problems, including kidney stones.

    What size of kidney stones require surgery? 

    Kidney stones of size greater than 5mm require surgery. Such stones can be stubborn and cause unbearable pain. Therefore, a surgical procedure to remove these stones is inevitable. Consult Pristyn Care for more information on the treatment of kidney stones.

    How to remove an 18 mm kidney stone?

    Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy/Nephrolithotripsy (PCNL) is hailed as one of the most effective surgeries to remove kidney stones with sizes greater than 18mm. It involves minute incisions around the flank area to physically remove the stones.

    What is the duration of kidney stones surgeries?

    The duration of kidney stone surgery for different techniques are as follows-

    • ESWL – 45 minutes (approx.)
    • URSL – 45 minutes (approx.)
    • PCNL – 1.5 to 2 hours (approx.)
    • RIRS – 1 hour (approx.)

    However, it is a general duration, and the OT time for different surgical techniques can vary depending on the medical condition of the patient and the surgical expertise of the surgeon.

    What is the role of stents during kidney stones surgery?

    Double J or DJ stents are inserted into the ureter through the urethral passage to expand the ureter. This allows smooth movement of stones and causes less pain to the patient as the stones are flushed out.

    What are the post-surgery recovery tips after kidney stone surgery? 

    It is important to follow the doctor’s instructions after the surgery for a fast recovery. Post-operative include –

    • Drink excess water
    • Eat high fiber foods

    Avoid spicy food for at least two months after the surgery Do not restrict yourself entirely from physical activity

    What do kidney stones look like?

    No, milk is not bad for kidney stones. Foods rich in dietary calcium, such as milk, yogurt, cheese, etc., are usually recommended to prevent kidney stones. However, calcium supplements increase the risk of renal stones.

    • Expertise of the urologist
    • Cost of stents if used
    • Follow-up sessions
    • Cost of medicines

Pristyn Care has a dedicated team that assists with insurance claims for kidney stones surgery within 30 minutes.

    Can kidney stones cause gastrointestinal problems?

    Yes, kidney stones can sometimes cause gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, pain in the lower back, and discomfort while urinating. Significant sized kidney stones can obstruct urinal passage, causing several GI issues, including gas, constipation, etc.

    Does beer help in flushing out kidney stones?

    Drinking beer can help flush out small stones (4mm or less) via urine. However, beer is an oxalate-rich beverage that also contains high calories. Therefore, consuming too much beer can increase oxalate content in the body and increase the risk of being overweight.

This would help you deal with the risk factors of kidney stones like obesity, diabetes and hypertension and also enhance blood circulation throughout the body. Remember that the intensity of exercises does not matter but the quality does. So, no need to indulge in vigorous exercises, just a 30-minute walk would suffice.
    • If you are overweight, try to shed those extra kilos. Also, keep an eye on your blood sugar and blood pressure levels.
    • If you are a smoker, try to quit this unhealthy habit. Also, monitor your alcohol intake as it can have adverse effects on kidney functioning.

    Dietary tips for kidney stones

    • Drink at least 10-12 glasses of water throughout the day. Stay hydrated and drink healthy juices and detox drinks.
    • Increase your intake of natural citrate. Citrates can have amazing results in breaking the stones

    Complications of untreated kidney stones

    Kidney stone is a major condition that usually results in unbearable pain. However, people are at greater risk if they ignore the symptoms by prolonging the treatment. It can lead to several complications that can eventually become life-threatening-

    • Hydronephrosis – When the stone blocks the ureteral passage, it creates difficulty for the urine to completely drain out from the kidneys. This leads to the accumulation of urine in the kidneys, causing swelling of a kidney. Hydronephrosis can occur in one or both kidneys, depending on the size and number of stones.
    • Renal scarring – Urinary tract infection is a common bacterial illness that occurs due to prolonged kidney stones in the ureter. These stones can cause continuous scarring around the stone damaging the tissues and organs around the kidneys causing permanent renal failure.
    • Kidney failure – Prolonged kidney stones can cause loss of kidney functions which can result in the need to remove either of the kidneys (nephrectomy).
