How is it Performed?
Lithotripsy is a medical procedure by which doctors treat stone, a person may have a stone in the kidney, gallbladder, or liver. If the size of the stone of the patient is smaller, then it gets out of the urethra itself. But if the size of the stone is big then we have to give a medical treatment to the patient to remove the stone.
In the Lithotripsy process, the shock waves are used to break the stone into smaller fragments.
The most common surgical procedure is a ureteroscopy with laser lithotripsy. This procedure involves using a small scope to reach the stone, a laser to fragment the stone, and a small basket to remove the pieces.
Generally, people who have undergone any Urological surgery are able to go home after 3-4 days from the surgery. Recovery may take weeks. You most likely can get back to light activity after 3 weeks. Tiring exercise should wait until after 3-4 weeks of recovery.
