What are Kidney Stones?

Kidney stones are hard deposits of salt and minerals in the kidneys. These stones usually cause immense pain whenever they move or obstruct the urinary tract. Kidney stones differ in size. While some stones can be a few millimetres in size, others can grow to inches. Kidney stones are quite prevalent equally and affect both men and women. Kidney stones can be divided into four major types- Calcium stones, Uric Acid stones, Struvite stones and Cystine stones.

Diagnosis

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.

Surgery

There are a number of techniques available for the treatment of kidney stones. The most modern and effective surgical treatments for kidney stones include laparoscopic treatment, laser treatment and shock wave lithotripsy.

In laparoscopic treatment for kidney stones, the surgeon makes a small incision in the renal pelvis or the ureter, depending upon the location of the kidney stone.The surgeon then inserts a small laparoscopic device into the urinary tract and looks for the kidney stones. The kidney stones are then removed through the incision and the incision is closed with minor stitches. It is a minimally invasive procedure and is performed under the administration of anesthesia, which means it is absolutely painless as well.

Laser treatment for kidney stones involves the use of laser energy for breaking the stones into small fragments. The surgeon inserts a device called an ureteroscope into the ureter through the urethra. Then the surgeon looks for the kidney stone and once it is found, high-intensity laser energy is aimed at the stone. The laser energy breaks the stones into small pieces, some of which are removed through a small bucket and the rest are flushed out through the urine.

In shock wave lithotripsy, the doctor uses thousands of shock wave pulses to break the larger stone into smaller pieces. After that, you will be asked to drink a lot of fluids so that the small stone pieces can travel easily through the urinary tract and then eventually get flushed out through the urine.
