Kidney Stones Removal in Delhi

Kidney stones form when there are excess salts and minerals in the kidneys. Kidneys are responsible for the removal of waste and fluid from the body through urine. When the concentration of waste is more than the fluid, the waste accumulates to form lumps which result in 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 Stones Treatment in Delhi

Diagnosis of Kidney Stones

The urologists at Pristyn Care are highly experienced in conducting a thorough diagnosis for kidney stones. The diagnosis may include a physical examination, in which the doctor will ask about your medical history and current medication if you are taking any. However, to detect the underlying cause, the doctor would recommend a few diagnostic tests:

  • Blood test – A blood test can reveal the amount of uric acid or calcium in your body. The test can also help evaluate the health of your kidneys and decide upon the necessary treatment.
  • Imaging tests – Ultrasound, X-ray, and CT scan are usually done to confirm the existence and size of the kidney stones.
  • Urine test-The urine culture is mostly recommended to detect the level of infection in the body.

4 Methods for Kidney Stone 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.

  • Blood in the urine
  • Vomiting
  • Unbearable pain
  • Fever and chills

Can kidney stones cause weight loss?

Weight loss is not directly associated with kidney stones. However, some people may lose their appetite due to kidney stones that can result in weight loss.

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.

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.

Does kidney stone surgery hurt?

No, kidney stones surgery is not painful since the patient is administered with spinal or general anesthesia. This means that the patient is asleep throughout the procedure. However, they may feel slight discomfort around the surgical site after the effect of anesthesia wears off.

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
  • Do not lift heavy objects if you still have stents in your body.

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?

Is milk bad for kidney stones?

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.

Is there any insurance coverage for kidney stones surgery?

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.

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.

Different types of kidney stones

Knowing the type of kidney stone is necessary to determine the best line of treatment and reduce the risk of getting the stones again in the future. Following are the different types of kidney stones:

Calcium stones – These are the most common type of kidney stones a person may develop. Calcium stones form due to deposits of calcium oxalate. Causes of calcium stones include high amounts of vitamin D, ill-dietary habits, intestinal bypass surgery, and metabolic disorders.

Struvite stones – Struvite stones may form from a urinary tract infection. These stones grow faster than any other type and do not show any symptoms in most cases.

Uric acid stones – These stones often form when people lose too much water from their bodies due to conditions like chronic diarrhea. They can also form when a person’s protein intake is too high. Genetic factors like diabetes can also be a reason for uric acid stones.

Cystine stones – People with a hereditary disorder called cystinuria can develop kidney stones. Cystinuria is a condition in which the kidneys excrete too much amino acid.

Different treatment options for kidney stones based on the size and location of the stone.

Kidney stones or renal calculi occur in different shapes or sizes depending on how long they are present in the body. Sometimes, these renal stones are minute and get flushed out through urine without medications or therapies. However, some stones can be stubborn and keep on accumulating over a period of time. Renal stones of such stubborn nature often obstruct ureteral passage or even form staghorn calculus. Some of the treatment options for kidney stones are as below-

Non-surgical methods – When the size of the stone is less than 5mm, urologists usually recommend non-surgical procedures for removing kidney stones. These may include home remedies, therapeutic medicines, medications such as pain-relievers, etc., that can help flush out kidney stones. The doctors usually recommend drinking excess water and staying hydrated to increase the fluid concentration in the urine. Several medications for kidney stones include –

  • Ibuprofen (Advil) for pain
  • Acetaminophen (Tylenol) for pain
  • Naproxen sodium (Aleve) for pain
  • Allopurinol (Zyloprim) for uric acid stones
  • Thiazide diuretics to prevent calcium stones from forming
  • Phosphorus solutions to prevent calcium stones from forming
  • Sodium bicarbonate or sodium citrate to make the urine less acidic

In addition, the doctor may recommend some alpha-blockers such as tamsulosin (Flomax), dutasteride, etc., that can help the muscles in your ureter relax, making it easier for you to pass the stone quickly and with less pain.

Surgical methods – Surgical or less invasive procedures are regarded as the most effective way to treat large kidney stones. Doctors usually recommend surgical procedures for kidney stones if the size of the stones is greater than 5mm. There are 4 procedures to remove kidney stones –

  • Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (URSL) – It is a non-invasive surgery that uses external shockwaves to break the stones into smaller pieces. The patient is administered spinal anesthesia to reduce the pain as the stones are flushed out of the body. ESWL is a conventional procedure that may require multiple sittings to break the stones completely.
  • Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy/Nephrolithotripsy (PCNL) – PCNL is an advanced procedure to treat kidney stones of size greater than 14mm. It is also known as tunnel surgery due to the nature of small incisions. It involves small incisions near the flank area while the patient is under general anesthesia. The surgeon then uses a nephroscope to locate and break the stones into smaller pieces. If the stone is removed in its intact state, it is called nephrolithotomy, and if the stone is broken into smaller fragments, it is termed as nephrolithotripsy.
  • Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery (RIRS) – RIRS is an advanced procedure to treat kidney stones with sizes between 8mm to 15mm. The patient is first administered with either spinal or general anesthesia for a painless procedure. The doctor then inserts a thin, flexible endoscope attached with a tiny laser on the other end. The stones are subsequently broken into smaller fragments and flushed out through urine. The surgeon may choose to insert DJ stents before RIRS treatment. Stents enlarge the passage of the urinary tract for smooth movement of stones. The stents are removed when the stones are thoroughly flushed out of the body.
  • Ureteroscopic lithotripsy (URSL) – Similar to RIRS, ureteroscopic lithotripsy also uses a thin ureteroscope that is attached to the camera and laser on the other end. URSL is also an effective surgical option for moderately sized kidney stones. The camera guides the surgeon inside the body to locate and break the stones. The urologists may insert ureteral stents to ease the movement of stones during the expulsion. The patient is administered with local or general anesthesia for a painless procedure.
