DRHC Dubai Urology Clinic

Laser lithotripsy is a procedure that providers use to break up and remove kidney, bladder, ureter, or urinary stones. This is usually done by inserting a laser through a scope into the urinary tract. After that, it is common to have blood in the urine and the stent will cause discomfort. Laser lithotripsy is generally more effective than shock wave lithotripsy..

Laser lithotripsy is a procedure in which stones in the urinary tract are broken up with a laser. This includes the bladder, kidneys, ureters (the tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder), and the urethra (the tube that carries urine out of your body).Laser lithotripsy is often performed by a urologist with ureteroscopy. They insert a flexible laser fiber through a scope (a long tube with a camera) into the urinary tract to break up the stones. They remove the rock pieces with a small basket or other tools. Providers do not need to make incisions (incisions in the skin) to perform this type of surgery.Lasers are also sometimes used to break up stones that a provider removes during a percutaneous nephrolithotomy, a procedure in which kidney stones are removed through an incision in the spinal cord.

Laser lithotripsy is usually done during a minimally invasive procedure. It’s not considered major surgery
