Advanced Kidney Stone Surgery at Urology Clinic Indore

Kidney stones, often causing severe discomfort and hindering urine flow, are efficiently addressed through surgical intervention when natural passage becomes impractical. Renowned urologist Dr. Nitesh Patidar, based in Indore, specializes in Kidney Stone Surgery, offering cutting-edge treatments for optimal outcomes.

Understanding Kidney Stones

Kidney stones, resembling pebble-like lumps, develop in the kidney or ureter due to the concentration of chemicals in the urine. Factors like calcium, oxalate, cystine, or uric acid can contribute to the formation of these solid stones from small crystals.

Symptoms and Indications for Surgery

When kidney stones become too large to pass naturally, cause severe discomfort, or lead to infections, surgical removal becomes a viable solution. Symptoms, including excruciating pain in the sides or lower abdomen and blood in urine, indicate the need for intervention. Dr. Nitesh Patidar addresses these issues promptly to alleviate symptoms and restore normal urine flow.

Types of Kidney Stone Surgery

1. Ureteroscopy (URS)

  • Effective for ureteral stones, especially those closest to the bladder.
  • Involves passing a flexible tube (ureteroscope) through the urethra to locate and remove or break up the stone using a laser.
  • Patients may leave the hospital the day after surgery or stay overnight.

2. Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PNL)

  • Ideal for large stones (greater than 20 mm) or staghorn stones associated with urinary tract infections.
  • Utilizes an endoscope inserted through a small incision in the back to view and remove or fragment the kidney stone.
  • Some patients may use nephrostomy tubes temporarily for urine drainage.
  • Hospital stay typically ranges from one to two nights.

3. Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery (RIRS)

  • Non-invasive technique performed within the kidney without external incisions.
  • Utilizes a fiberoptic endoscope and surgical tools inserted through the urethra, bladder, and ureter into the kidney.
  • Suitable for various conditions, including kidney stones, narrowing of the kidney outlet, urethral strictures, kidney tumors, and bleeding disorders.
  • Anesthesia options include local, intravenous, or general anesthesia.
