Ureterorenoscopy (URS): Minimally Invasive Stone Removal Procedure at Stonexperts
At Stonexperts, we offer advanced and minimally invasive treatments for kidney stones, including Ureterorenoscopy (URS). URS is a highly effective procedure that uses a fine endoscope and laser technology to break down and remove kidney stones. This innovative technique does not require any cuts or incisions on the body, ensuring a swift recovery and allowing patients to resume their normal activities the day after the procedure.
What is Ureterorenoscopy (URS)?
URS is a cutting-edge medical procedure used to treat kidney stones. During the URS procedure, a specialized instrument called an endoscope is inserted into the urinary tract to reach the affected kidney. The endoscope is equipped with a powerful laser that can fragment kidney stones into smaller, manageable pieces.
The Minimally Invasive Advantage
No Incisions or Cuts:
One of the significant advantages of URS is that it is a minimally invasive procedure. This means that no incisions or cuts are made on the patient’s body. Instead, the endoscope is gently inserted through the natural urinary passages, ensuring a more comfortable experience and reducing the risk of complications.
URS is designed to promote a speedy recovery for patients. Since there are no surgical incisions, healing time is significantly reduced compared to traditional open surgeries. Many patients can resume their regular activities as early as the day after the procedure, leading to minimal disruption to their daily lives.
Effective Stone Removal: The laser technology used in URS allows for precise and efficient fragmentation of kidney stones. The endoscope provides a clear view of the stone, enabling the urologist to target and break it down into smaller pieces. These smaller fragments can then be easily passed out of the body through the natural urinary route.
The URS Procedure
Before the URS procedure, our team of experts will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine the size, location, and number of kidney stones. They will also assess the patient’s overall health to ensure the procedure’s suitability.
URS is typically performed under general anesthesia to ensure patient comfort and safety throughout the procedure.
Insertion of Endoscope:
The urologist gently inserts the endoscope through the urethra and bladder, navigating it up to the affected kidney or ureter.
Once the endoscope is in place, the laser is used to break down the kidney stones into smaller fragments. The urologist carefully monitors the process to ensure all stones are effectively treated.
After fragmentation, the urologist may remove the smaller stone pieces using a tiny basket or allow them to pass naturally through the urine.
Following the URS procedure, patients are closely monitored for a short period before they are allowed to go home. Most patients can resume normal activities, including light work, the day after the procedure.
