Laser Lithotripsy in Dubai at DRHC Urology Clinic

Kidney stones can be a painful and disruptive condition, affecting millions of people worldwide. At DRHC Dubai, we offer a state-of-the-art treatment known as laser lithotripsy, which provides a minimally invasive and highly effective solution for kidney stone removal.

What is Laser Lithotripsy?

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.

How Does Laser Lithotripsy Work?

During the procedure, a thin, flexible ureteroscope is inserted through the urethra and bladder into the ureter, where the kidney stone is located. Once the stone is visualized, a high-powered laser fiber is used to precisely target and fragment the stone into tiny pieces. These fragments can then be easily flushed out of the body or extracted using specialized instruments.

Advantages of Laser Lithotripsy

  • Minimally Invasive: No incisions are required, reducing the risk of infection and speeding up recovery time.
  • High Success Rate: Laser lithotripsy is highly effective at breaking down even the hardest stones.
  • Quick Recovery: Most patients can resume normal activities within a few days.
  • Precision: The laser allows for precise targeting, minimizing damage to surrounding tissues.

What to Expect During the Procedure

  1. Pre-Procedure Preparation: You will be asked to fast for several hours before the procedure. Anesthesia is administered to ensure you are comfortable and pain-free throughout.
  2. The Procedure: The entire process typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size and number of stones.
  3. Post-Procedure Care: After the procedure, you may experience mild discomfort and some blood in your urine, which is normal. Pain medication and hydration are recommended to aid in recovery.
