Lithotripsy is a procedure done on patients experiencing kidney stones. At SRMC we offer two types of Lithotripsy procedures, laser, and portable. Laser Lithotripsy uses a laser to break kidney stones into tiny pieces. This procedure uses a scope that can be passed into the tubes of the urinary tract. Incisions are not needed. The tiny kidney stones that are broken up by the laser can be removed by the surgeon or passed out of the body through urination. Portable Lithotripsy is provided for patients that require a non-invasive approach for the fragmentation of kidney stones.
