Urinary Calculi & Lithotripsy

Kidney Stones

(calculi) in the kidney typically leave the body by passage in the urine stream, and many stones are formed and passed without causing symptoms. If stones grow to sufficient size they can cause obstruction of the

ureter

. Shock Wave Lithotripsy (SWL) – is the process of shattering or breaking up the Kidney Stone into smaller fragments using shock waves. This enables the stones to be passed. A

Urologist

will perform a Lithotripsy.
