Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL) is the most frequently used procedure for the treatment of kidney stones with a success rate over 90%. In ESWL, shock waves that are generated outside of the body travel through the skin and body tissues unit they hit the dense stones. The stones break down into sand-like particles which are easily passed through the urinary tract in the urine. The treatment is almost painless, non-invasive and water-bath free.

No general anesthesia nor hospital stay are required and the patient is discharged 1-2 hours after the procedure. Patient could resume work after resting for a day or two.
