Online PR News – 15-July-2012 – Pune, Maharashtra – Kidney stones are formed when stone forming substances get deposited in the kidney forming crystals, which stack to form the stones. Usually, the stone develops due to excessive presence of a single chemical in the urine. A stone may block the flow of urine and cause pain if it travels down the tubes of the urinary tract.
Lithotripsy is a technique for the treatment of kidney stones. In Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESW Lithotripsy)-
• Shock waves are used to fragment kidney stones.
• High-end sound waves pass through your body without injuring it and break the stone into small pieces. These small pieces move though the urinary tract and out of the body more easily than a large stone.
• ESWL is usually an outpatient procedure. You can go home after treatment.

Dr Ketan Pai, Urologist, Sahyadri Munot Hospital Swargate said, “This treatment method has a number of benefits over other procedures. Not only is it a relatively safe procedure but it also has a high success rate. Besides, one can return to their daily activities within a few days of treatment.”

An additional highlight of this camp is that the ESW Lithotripsy procedure is offered at highly concessional rates that of Rs 7,999. The normal rates for this type of procedure are anywhere between Rs 12-15,000 depending upon the size of the stone.
