Kidneys play a vital role in the upkeep of our body. They filter out the unwanted particles from within the blood and purify it for proper functioning. Oftentimes due to excessive deposits, kidney stones get formed in the organ leading to nausea, fever, severe pain in abdomen, blood in urine and burning sensation during urination. These can be very painful and cumbersome to treat. Sohana Hospital Mohali offers Retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) which is a ureteroscopic technique performed inside the kidney without the use of any external incision or cuts. 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 fiberoptic 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 postoperative pain and discomfort for the patient. Such a surgery removes the kidney stone of the patient with the following benefits:
I had acute pain in my left abdomen and after an Ultrasound, I was told that I had a kidney stone I then trusted Dr. Karamveer Sabharwal, who recommended the latest most advanced Laser RIRS surgery. I had a very comfortable experience at Sohana Hospital and am extremely satisfied with the surgical excellence given to me.
