The cost of Kidney Stones Surgery Depends on the following factors.
The final cost can only be calculated after Consultation with the doctor.
Kidney stones are solid crystals generated by urine salts. They are also known as renal calculi. Kidney stones can obstruct the flow of urine, resulting in infection, renal damage, and even kidney failure. They can differ in terms of size and location.Kidney stones affect roughly one in every ten males and one in every 35 women.
The likelihood of acquiring a second kidney stone after having one is between 5% and 10% per year. Within five years, thirty to fifty percent of persons who have a first kidney stone will get a second stone. The risk decreases after five years. Some people, on the other hand, keep getting stones their entire lives.
Laparoscopic surgery: If a kidney stone is more than 1.5 cm in size or has a hard consistency, doctors will undertake percutaneous surgery. This is a follow-up procedure to the original surgical treatment. In this procedure, the doctor makes a small incision in the patient's back and inserts a tube into the patient's back to reach the kidney. The stones are then surgically broken into little fragments and removed through the connected catheter by the doctor. Following that, a stent is used to hold the channel open.
Ureteroscopy: In the operating room, doctors administer general anesthesia to the patient. A scope is used to look within the ureter, and a laser fiber is used to break up the kidney stone particles.
This treatment might take anywhere from 20 minutes to hours, depending on the number of stones present inside. A stent is placed post-surgery to prevent the ureter from closing. It remains for 3-10 days, and the remaining pieces pass out throughout this period.
Possible causes include drinking too little water, exercise (too much or too little), obesity, weight loss surgery, or eating food with too much salt or sugar. Infections and family history might be important in some people.
Kidney stones can block the flow of urine and cause infection, kidney damage or even kidney failure.
Common symptoms of kidney stones include a sharp, cramping pain in the back and side. This feeling often moves to the lower abdomen or groin.
Most people can go back to their regular daily activities 1 or 2 days after this procedure. Drink a lot of water in the weeks after treatment.
