Urinary Stone Treatment in Pune | Kidney Stone Treatment in Pune

Urinary tract stones start to form in a kidney and may expand in a ureter or the bladder. Contingent upon where a stone is found, it might be known as a kidney stone, ureteral stone, or bladder stone. The procedure of stone development is called urolithiasis, renal lithiasis, or nephrolithiasis. Dr. Abhijit Gokhale Urological Surgeon in Shivaji Nagar & Urinary Tract Stone Specialist in Pune provides treatment for various kidney stone in Pune.

What are the different types of Kidney Stones?

Kidney stones come in many different types and colors. How you treat them and stop new stones from forming depends on the type of stone you have.

Calcium stones

Calcium stones are the most common type of kidney stone. There are two types of calcium stones: calcium oxalate and calcium phosphate. Calcium oxalate is by far the most common type of calcium stone. Some people have too much calcium in their urine, raising their risk of calcium stones. Even with normal amounts of calcium in the urine, calcium stones may form for other reasons.

Uric acid stones

Uric acid is a waste product that comes from chemical changes in the body. Uric acid crystals do not dissolve well in acidic urine and instead will form a uric acid stone. Having acidic urine may come from:

  • Being overweight
  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Type 2 diabetes (high blood sugar)
  • Gout
  • A diet that is high in animal protein and low in fruits and vegetables

Struvite/Infection stones

Struvite stones are not a common type of stone. These stones are related to chronic urinary tract infections (UTIs). Some bacteria make the urine less acidic and more basic or alkaline. Magnesium ammonium phosphate (struvite) stones form in alkaline urine. These stones are often large, with branches, and they often grow very fast.

People who get chronic UTIs, such as those with long-term tubes in their kidneys or bladders, or people with poor bladder emptying due to neurologic disorders (paralysis, multiple sclerosis, and spina bifida) are at the highest risk for developing these stones.

Cystine stones

Cystine is an amino acid that is in certain foods; it is one of the building blocks of protein. Cystinuria (too much cystine in the urine) is a rare, inherited metabolic disorder. It is when the kidneys do not reabsorb cystine from the urine. When high amounts of cystine are in the urine, it causes stones to form. Cystine stones often start to form in childhood.

Symptoms of Kidney Stone

  • A feeling of intense need to urinate.
  • Urinating more often or a burning feeling during urination.
  • Urine that is dark or red due to blood. Sometimes urine has only small amounts of red blood cells that can’t be seen with the naked eye.
  • Nausea and vomiting.
  • For men, you may feel pain at the tip of the penis.

Kidney Stone Treatment in Pune

  • ESWL (Extracorporeal stun wave lithotripsy)

In ESWL, a series of shock waves created by a machine called a lithotripter. The shock waves are engaged by x-beam onto the kidney stone and travel into the body through skin and tissue, arriving at the stone where they break it into little parts. For half a month following treatment, those little pieces are dropped of the body in the pee.

  • PCNL (Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy)

PCNL is a technique used to remove certain stones in the kidney or upper ureter (the tube that drains urine from the kidney to the bladder) that are too large for other forms of stone treatment such as shock wave lithotripsy or ureteroscopy. You will need a short (2 or 3 day) hospitalization. You may be off work for a week or so. Depending on the position of the stone, the procedure is completed in 20 to 45 minutes. The aim is to remove all the stones so that none are left to pass through the urinary tract. It is performed in the hospital under general anesthesia, meaning you will be asleep during the procedure and not feel any pain.

  • RIRS (Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery)

RIRS may be done to remove a stone. The stone is seen through the scope and can then be manipulated or crushed by an ultrasound probe or evaporated by a laser probe or grabbed by small forceps. Retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) is a technique for doing medical procedure inside the kidney utilizing a viewing tube called a fiberoptic endoscope.
In RIRS the degree is put through the urethra (the urinary opening) into the bladder and afterward through the ureter into the pee gathering some portion of the kidney. The extension subsequently is moved retrograde (up the urinary tract framework) to inside the kidney (intrarenal). The stone is seen through the degree and would then be able to control or squashed by an ultrasound test or vanished by a laser test or retrieved by little forceps, and so on. Pelviolithotomy is the removal of a kidney stone by the surgical incision of the renal pelvis.
