Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL)
The advanced medical equipment and the highly experienced scientific personnel (urologists and operators) is the key to the success on which the lithotripsy is based.
No longer a scalpel needed for stones
Extracorporeal lithotripsy (ESWL), now established in all countries, abolishes the scalpel, incision, pain, and many months of hospitalization with a bloodless and side effect-free method.
How is it achieved?
The stone is bombarded from a distance, with shock waves focused precisely on the stone, whether it is in the kidney or ureter, or even in the bladder and gallbladder.
After the lithotripsy, the patient remains in resuscitation mainly for rest, accompanied by his relatives, for 15-30 minutes.
The lithotripsy department operates under the Urology Department.
