Urinary stone disease refers to the so-called gallstones or kidney stones, which can also become lodged in the ureters (conduits that carry urine from the kidney to the bladder), in the bladder and even in the urethra (channel that carries urine to the bladder to the outside environment).
The diagnosis involves laboratory and imaging tests to evaluate the chemical composition of the stone, its size and location, and the patients’ clinical condition. The current treatment for urinary stones is performed with minimally invasive surgery (no incisions) through an Endourology technique, consisting in the use of instruments and equipment that are inserted directly into the kidney, ureter or bladder, through natural orifices (urethra) or percutaneously created (in the lower back wall).
Master Clínica offers a series of endourological modalities, such as percutaneous renal surgery, videolaparoscopy and a major innovation: the intracorporeal lithrotipsy through flexible tools plus Holmium Laser. The staff is highly trained to keep track of the patient during and after the treatment, in order to determine the success of the procedure.
