Kidney Stones Removal in Hyderabad

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 Stone Treatment in Hyderabad

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.

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.
