Kidney Stone Treatment in Ghaziabad

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 Ghaziabad

    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.

    You can visit our best kidney stone specialists in Ghaziabad and and nearby cities such as Gurgaon, Noida, Faridabad, Ghaziabad, and Manesar.

    Surgery Type Description Procedure Recovery Time
    Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL) Non-invasive procedure using shock waves to break up stones. Patient lies on a table, and shock waves are directed at the stone. Usually return to normal activities within a day.
    Ureteroscopy (URSL) A thin, flexible tube (ureteroscope) is used to remove or break up stones. Ureteroscope inserted through the urinary tract to reach the stone. Typically, a few days to a week.
    Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL) Minimally invasive procedure to remove large stones. A small incision is made in the back, and a nephroscope is used to access and remove the stone. Several days to a week.
    Open Surgery (Nephrolithotomy) Traditional surgical approach for large or complex stones. Surgeon makes an incision in the abdomen or side to directly access and remove the stone. Several weeks to full recovery.

    20 Years Experience

    Kidney stones can be extremely painful. Individuals with kidney stones experience waves of pain that can come and go and may also feel pain in the lower abdomen or groin region. Other symptoms may include blood in the urine, frequent urination, and discomfort during urination. Making a few changes to your diet and lifestyle can help reduce symptoms of kidney stones. However, you should not solely rely on diet and lifestyle changes because any delay in the treatment of kidney stones can increase the chances of blockage in the urinary tract, hematuria, chronic kidney disease, etc. Laser surgery is the best and most effective way to treat kidney stones. Therefore, consult your healthcare provider immediately for proper guidance and successful treatment.

    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.
