What are Kidney Stones?

Kidney stones are hard mineral and salt deposits that can form in any part of the urinary tract, from the kidneys to the urethra. Initially silent and asymptomatic, they may cause symptoms when they grow larger or move, leading to pain and blood in the urine.

Why Have Kidney Stones Treatment?

Kidney stones treatment is essential for various reasons:

Symptom relief: Treatment aims to alleviate the pain and discomfort caused by kidney stones, as well as reduce associated symptoms like blood in the urine.

Prevention of complications: Treating kidney stones helps prevent complications such as urinary tract infections, kidney damage, or blockage of the urinary tract.

Restoring normal kidney function: Removing or breaking down kidney stones allows the kidneys to function properly, promoting optimal urinary health.

What Happens at the Kidney Stones Treatment?

The treatment for kidney stones depends on their location and size. There are several methods used:

Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL): This non-invasive procedure is suitable for smaller stones in the upper urinary tract. Shockwaves generated from outside the body break up the stones, which are then passed out during urination.

Endoscopic Stone Treatment: A small flexible tube with a camera is inserted through the urethra to locate the stone. Using laser technology, the stone is broken up and removed.

Percutaneous Nephrolithotripsy: For larger stones or when other treatments are ineffective, an open procedure may be required. A small incision is made in the patient’s back to access the stone, which is then broken up or removed using a scope.

Kidney Stones Treatment Procedure Overview and Cost

Treatment Anasthesia Procedure Time Hospital Admission Cost
Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) General Anaesthesia 1 hour 1 night £1200
Endoscopic Stone Treatment General Anaesthesia 1 hour 1 night £6500 to £7500
Percutaneous Lephrolithotripsy General Anaesthesia 1 hour 1 night £6500 to £7500

Treatment Recovery Time, Duration, and Expectations

The duration of kidney stone treatment procedures typically lasts around 1 hour. General anesthesia is administered, and a hospital stay of 1 night is usually required for observation and recovery. The recovery time varies depending on the procedure and individual factors, but patients can generally expect a few days to a week for a full recovery. It is important to follow post-treatment instructions, including dietary and fluid intake recommendations, to promote healing and minimize the risk of recurrent kidney stones. The cost of kidney stone treatment at Electiva ranges from £1200 to £7500, depending on the specific procedure and individual circumstances. It is recommended to consult with Electiva or your healthcare provider for accurate and up-to-date information regarding the cost and specific details of the treatment.
