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.

How do doctors at Pristyn Care treat kidney stones?

Kidney stones that are smaller in size may cause mild discomfort, and in such cases, the patient is suggested to drink around four quarts of water every day to flush the urinary system. If a patient chooses to do so, pain relievers will be prescribed along with alpha-blockers and other medications to make the flushing easier. However, in the case of larger stones, this method does not prove to be effective as the stones are too big to be passed, and the patient is presented with several other treatment options. If other options fail to work, the doctor may recommend kidney stone removal. 

Minimally invasive Surgical Treatments for Kidney Stone Removal

The location and size of the kidney stones are two of the main factors that influence the choice of treatment. Stones that are above. 0.5 centimeters are considered larger in size and are less likely to pass without surgery. The surgical treatments provided by our kidney stone doctor in Kolkata are minimally invasive and highly effective. Minimally invasive surgery for kidney stone removal is completed in lesser time (compared to open or conventional surgery), requires no extensive incisions and stitches, and causes minimal scarring pain. 

Some of the most common techniques used for minimally invasive surgical treatment for kidney stone removal in Kolkata are listed as follows:

  • Extracorporeal Shockwave Lithotripsy (ESWL)- Extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy can be done only if the stones are up to two centimeters and are not located in the lower region of the kidney. This is the least invasive kidney stone removal procedure and it makes use of X-rays, or ultrasound imaging to locate the stones, which are then broken down into smaller fragments with the help of shockwaves. The smaller stone fragments are later passed out.  
  • Ureteroscopy with laser lithotripsy (URS) - This procedure is done if kidney stones are located either in the ureter or anywhere else in the kidney. The procedure makes use of a small fiber-optic ureteroscope which is inserted into the ureter through the bladder. The ureteroscope allows the surgeon to locate the stone, after which a laser is used to break the stone into smaller pieces which are later passed out with urine. 
  • Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) - PCNL is the most effective treatment alternative for removing kidney stones that are larger than 2 centimeters in size, or when there are other anatomic complications. Percutaneous nephrolithotomy is done by making a half-inch incision in the back through which the stones are extracted by the surgeon with the help of a nephroscope. As the surgery involves just a half-inch incision, the patient is required to stay at the hospital just for one night for general observation.
  • Retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS)- The retrograde intrarenal surgery is done with the help of a fiber-optic endoscope which goes through the urethra into the kidney. The procedure is performed under the influence of general, spinal, or local anesthesia and does not involve any incisions. Only a specialized urologist with training in retrograde intrarenal surgery is qualified to perform the procedure. There are a multitude of benefits that this minimally invasive surgery has over traditional open surgeries. For starters, the surgery is quick, painless, involves no incisions or stitches, does not cause blood loss, and offers a quicker recovery.

Pristyn Care is proud to have a dedicated team of experienced and skilled urologists and surgeons who are always at the disposal of patients and do their best to provide them with the utmost comfort. If you are experiencing symptoms like pain in the lower back, lower abdomen, pain while urinating, nausea, and vomiting, you should see a urologist immediately as such symptoms usually point towards the presence of kidney stones.
