How to diagnosis the Kidney stone?

The treatments for urinary bladder is:

  • Breaking stones apart In this process, initially, anesthesia is used to make the patient unconscious. Then, a small tube with a camera at the end is inserted into the bladder so that the Urologist can see the stone in the bladder or ureter. Afterward, a laser ultrasound or other device breaks the stone into small pieces and the doctor flushes them out from the urinary tract
  • Surgical removal If a bladder or ureteric stone is large or too hard to break up then the Urologist can go for surgery to remove the stone. On the other hand, if the bladder stone is the result of a bladder outlet obstruction or prostate enlargement then it should be treated at the right time along with the surgical system.
