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. Portable Lithotripsy is provided for patients that require a non-invasive approach for the fragmentation of kidney stones. Using high-intensity shock waves, stones found in the kidney, and parts of the ureter are broken up. Post-procedure, the tiny pieces of stones will pass out of your body through your urine.
