Shockwave Lithotripsy (SWL) is the most common treatment for kidney stones. Pressure waves are sent from outside the body to break apart the kidney stone or stones into tiny fragments, allowing an easier passage for the patient.
This procedure involves shockwaves directed at your kidney stone or stones to break them apart into small pieces. Usually patients are allowed to return home the same day of the procedure. This minimally invasive operation is performed when the patient is under general anesthesia.
Our physicians are experienced in treating the complete range of urologic conditions and diseases, from kidney stones and sexual dysfunction to prostate cancer, incontinence and infertility.
