RIRS is a commonly used treatment procedure by urologists globally, for recurrently occurring kidney stones. It’s an endoscopic surgery in which with the help of a laser, stones are treated. A viewing tube is inserted during surgery which then helps the specialist by giving a clear view to the stones present inside, which are thus crushed by the fibreoptic endoscope or manually removed by forceps. RIRS is a more preferred way of treatment for the doctors because it is a quicker surgery and it eliminates complications related to post operation pain and discomfort for the patient. Surgical complications associated with the surgery are also almost nil. Recovery time of the patient is also cut down by more than half in case of the retrograde intrarenal surgery. Hence it is more preferred by specialists all over the world.
