Treatment

Diagnosis

Before carrying out the treatment process, the doctor will perform a number of diagnostic procedures to determine the right approach of treatment available for the patient. During the initial consultation, the doctor will physically examine the condition and ask the patient about the medical history and the symptoms that he/she is experiencing. Additionally, to complete the diagnosis, the kidney stone specialist doctor may recommend the patient to go for any one or more of the following tests:

  • Urinalysis
  • Blood Tests
  • Imaging Tests
  • Creatinine Test
  • Blood Urea Nitrogen [BUN] Test

Surgery

Based on the findings of the diagnostic tests, the doctor will come up either with a surgical or a non-surgical treatment plan. Depending on the size, location, and severity of the kidney stones, doctors highly recommend the following surgical methods:

  • Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy [ESWL]
  • Ureteroscopic Lithotripsy [URSL]

Can I remove my 8mm stone naturally?

It is highly unlikely that you will be able to pass 8mm stones. A human ureter is around 3-5mm wide, and trying to expel a stone 8mm big will cause damage to the surrounding organs and not forget the excruciating pain during the entire process.

How to stop kidney stones pain immediately?

Consult a urologist if your renal stone pain is unbearable. Surgical procedures are very effective to relieve the pain due to kidney stones. However, if the pain is mild, you can prescribe medications from the doctor that can help reduce the pain.

What is the most effective treatment method to remove kidney stones?

Surgical techniques for kidney stones are considered the most effective methods to treat kidney stones. However, the treatment procedure depends on the severity of your condition, size of the renal stones, location of the stones, and your health condition. Contact Pristyn Care for more information on the best treatment for 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 14mm. It involves minute incisions around the flank area to physically remove the stones.

What is the OT time for different kidney stone removal surgeries?

The OT time for different kidney stone removal surgeries usually depends on the medical condition of the patient, size, the number of stones, surgical expertise of the urologist, etc. Here is the approximate duration of kidney stone removal surgeries in Coimbatore – 

  • ESWL – 30 to 45 minutes 
  • URSL – 30 to 60 minutes
  • RIRS – 1 to 1.5 hours
  • PCNL – up to 2 hours (depending on size and number)
Does kidney stone removal surgery cause pain?

However, the patient may feel some discomfort once the effect of anesthesia wears off.

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

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.

Yes, many health insurance companies cover the cost of kidney stone surgery partially or entirely if it is deemed a medical necessity. Pristyn Care has a dedicated team that assists with insurance claims for kidney stones surgery within 30 minutes. However, the insurance claims depend on your insurance policy and the terms and conditions set by the insurance provider.

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.

Surgical Methods for Kidney Stone Removal

Let us understand the four major surgical procedures performed for the removal of kidney stones, depending on the size and location of the stones:

  • Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy [ESWL]: This is a non-invasive procedure for the removal of kidney stones. In this procedure, the surgeon uses a series of shock waves generated by a machine known as a lithotripter. The shock waves are focussed onto the renal stone externally through the skin and tissues to break them into smaller fragments. Once the stones are broken down, they are flushed out of the body through urine. This procedure can take multiple sittings to completely break the stones. The whole procedure is performed under general or spinal anesthesia to make sure that the patient does not feel any sort of pain or discomfort throughout the entire procedure.
  • Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery [RIRS]: This is one of the most advanced methods of treating kidney stones that are of the size of 8mm to 14mm. Performed under the influence of anesthesia, the surgeon in this procedure inserts a double JJ stent into the ureter via the urethra. The stent enlarges the urethral passage for a smooth movement of the stones. The surgeon then uses a thin, flexible endoscope, fitted with a tiny laser at the end of it. The surgeon uses x-rays and imaging tests to locate the stones and accordingly break them into smaller fragments with the help of the laser. This procedure may require multiple sittings to completely break the stones and flush them out of the body. Once the stones are flushed out, the stents will be removed. However, in the case of a staghorn calculus [type of kidney stone that resembles the horns of a stag], it may take a while longer for the surgeon to completely break the stones.
  • Ureteroscopic Lithotripsy [URSL]: This procedure is carried out when the size of the stone is between 8mm to 14mm. During this procedure, the patient is first administered spinal anaesthesia to sedate the lower half of the body. The surgeon in the procedure may choose to insert stents through the ureteral passage for a smooth movement of the stones. A medical equipment known as ureteroscope is passed through the ureter with a camera and laser attached to the end. The camera guides the surgeon by providing live images of the organs and tissues inside the body. The stones are then subsequently broken down into smaller pieces with laser and are flushed out through urine. Once the stones are completely removed, the surgeon removes the stents.
  • Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy [PCNL]: This is a minimally invasive surgery for the removal of Kidney stones that are larger than 14mm. Performed under the influence of anesthesia, the surgeon begins the procedure by making a keyhole incision of about 1cm on the lower back area. The surgeon then inserts medical equipment known as a nephoscope through the incision to break the stones into smaller pieces. The stones are then removed after breaking them up into small fragments. Once the stones are removed, the surgeon closes the wound/incisions using surgical sutures.

How to prepare for kidney stone removal surgery in Coimbatore?

There are a set of instructions given by the hospital or your urologist before your kidney stone treatment in Coimbatore. Here are some pre-surgery instructions for kidney stone removal surgery –

  • Inform your doctor of any current medical condition.
  • Do not eat or drink anything after midnight prior to the day of the kidney stone removal procedure. It can hinder the effect of anesthesia and or cause medical problems.
  • If you smoke or consume alcohol, stop smoking and drinking.
  • Inform your doctor of any ongoing medications. Some medicines such as blood thinners shouldn’t be taken before the surgery.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothes to avoid pressure on the surgical site.

What to expect after your kidney stone removal surgery procedure?

The patient is usually under the effects of anesthesia after the surgery and may suffer from mild dizziness and discomfort in case of stent insertion. Patients who have undergone invasive surgery may feel slight numbness around the site of the incision. Doctors at Pristyn Care guide you through the recovery period and monitor your health regularly to ensure you are in the best of your health. You may experience the following after your kidney stone surgeries –

  • A small amount of bleeding in your urine for a few days to a few weeks after the surgery due to stent insertion.
  • Mild pain and nausea as the stones are expelled from the body after the treatment.
  • Some bruising on the back or side after your shock waves lithotripsy procedure.
