Steps to take before the Ureteroscopic Stone Removal procedure
Our team of doctors will prepare you thoroughly for the procedure. At this preparatory stage, discuss with your doctor the complications, risks, and post-surgery care.
What happens during the treatment?
The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia. The doctor inserts a thin instrument into the urethra known as ureteroscope. This instrument directly reaches the bladder and the ureter where the stone is formed. With an optical vision, the doctor will then extract the stone by breaking it. The process of extraction will be done holding forceps. The stone is also broken into pieces using a laser. The fragments of stone get generally cleared through urination.
After the procedure
After the surgery, your doctor may prescribe you certain medication to relieve the burning sensation when you urinate. You will also be advised to drink a lot of water. The surgery is usually done on an outpatient basis or requires a hospital stay no more than 48 hours.
