MEDICLINIC WELCARE HOSPITAL

Stone Services Unit

The stone service at Mediclinc Welcare Hospital offers all modern, state-of-the-art, minimally invasive stone treatments. Urinary stone disease is a common and very painful disease. Traditionally, it has been treated with open surgery to remove stones from the kidneys, ureters and bladder. However, in the last three decades open surgery for stone disease has become obsolete.

In its place, modern and minimally invasive keyhole procedures have been introduced which use ultra-fine surgical instruments and laser fibres to fragment and remove stones from the urinary tract. This is done through existing natural orifices or tiny holes in the skin. Even for large stones, small holes can be made in the back (percutaneous nephrolithotomy) or in the abdomen (laparoscopy) to approach the kidney in a keyhole-like fashion. These small holes leave barely any scars and the shockwave treatment from the outside of the body is available.
