Selection of an expert surgeon plays very important role in getting safe and successful surgery. You can get relief from Kidney Stones pain by getting lithotripsy surgery in India from an expert surgeon. Lithotripsy is one of the most common urosurgery procedures being performed all over the globe. It is also known as shock wave lithotripsy as this non- invasive procedure uses shock waves. In this procedure stones are broken up that form in the kidney, ureter and urinary bladder by the help of shock waves. There are many forms of it. But the most common is extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy. Extracorporeal means outside the body. If you have stone in kidney, ureter or urinary bladder then surely you are the one for this treatment. It is important to keep in mind the size, location, shape and number of stones in the urinary organs. Doctors will instruct you not to eat or drink anything before this procedure. Before this procedure a whole physical examination will be taken to determine the number of stones in urinary organs. This test is called Intravenous Pyelogram. This is a radio- opaque dye which will show up on x-ray as it travels through the bloodstream and will be excreted by the kidneys. There are two types of shock wave technology. The original lithotripsy machines sent the shock waves through water in a tub in which the person being treated was placed. This technology remains in use today. More recently, machines have been developed that send shock waves through padded cushions on a table, so the procedure does not involve immersing a person in water. There are some risks involved with this surgery; pieces of stone are left in the body, kidney may suffer from bleeding, damage to nearby structures in stomach by ESWL, blockage of urine flow from the kidney and sign of infection may also occur like strong need to urinate, severe pain, and blood in urine.
