Kidney stones (also known as renal calculi, nephrolithiasis, or urolithiasis) are mineral and salt deposits that grow inside your kidneys.
Kidney stones can be caused by a variety of factors, including diet, excess body weight, certain medical conditions, and certain supplements and drugs. From your kidneys to your bladder, kidney stones can harm any component of your urinary tract. When urine becomes concentrated, minerals crystallize and bind together, resulting in stones.
Kidney stones can be quite painful to pass, but if caught early enough, they usually do not cause permanent damage. To clear a kidney stone, you may only need to take pain medication and drink plenty of water, depending on your circumstances. In other cases surgery may be required if stones become trapped in the urinary tract, are connected with a urinary infection, or cause problems.
A kidney stone normally does not produce symptoms until it travels about inside your kidney or passes into your ureters, which are the tubes that link your kidneys and bladder. If it becomes lodged in the ureters, it can obstruct urine flow and cause the kidney to enlarge and the ureter to spasm, both of which can be quite painful. You may experience the following indications and symptoms at that time:
Other signs and symptoms may include:
The following are some of the reasons why stone removal surgery is required:

Thank you IndiCure Health Team for all the support you provided my father. You deserve 6 stars for customer service. Your team was instrumental in setting up my Dad with Dr. Babu and other healthcare teams. Your professionalism is exceptional. You responded to my all concerns within 24 hours; you reassured me everything would be okay when I needed it the most; you showed compassion that I've never seen before. Dr. Babu successfully operated on my Dad and we are so grateful for that. I would like to say a special thank you to Mr. Bachir, whom my dad now calls a friend. Mr. Bachir went above and beyond his job responsibilities and responded to the present every time my father needed him. I will recommend your services to friends and family every time I get the opportunity to do so. No amount of words can express my gratitude, so on behalf of my family, we would like to THANK YOU.

A combination of lifestyle changes and drugs may be used to prevent kidney stones.
Kidney stones can be detected using the following methods:
Most minor kidney stones do not require invasive treatment; instead, the following steps should be taken:
The composition of kidney stones is revealed through laboratory investigation. This information is used by the doctor to figure out why kidney stones form and how to prevent them.
In a small number of cases, the surgeon will treat you right away. If you have an infection, significant discomfort, or if your kidney function is impaired, if you only have one kidney or have had a kidney transplant, or if you have large stones or stones in both kidneys, you should get a kidney stone removed right away.
The kidney stone will pass in a few hours to weeks, most likely during urine. On average, it takes one to three weeks for stones to pass.
The optimal size for SWL is a stone with a diameter of less than 2 cm.
It should be avoided in the following situations:
Normally, no. Lithotripsy is usually performed as an outpatient procedure.
Advantage: The biggest benefit is that it cures kidney stones without requiring an incision, which cuts down on hospital stays and recovery time.
The disadvantage is that it does not always function. Within a month of receiving ESWL, approximately 58% of persons will be stone-free.A repeat procedure is sometimes required. ESWL has the potential to harm your kidneys.
Recovery period is usually extremely short; many people can return to their normal activities within one to two days.
Yes, you'll need to stay in the hospital for two or three days.
Patients leave the hospital stone-free after this treatment, and it is less invasive than a complete open surgery to treat a kidney stone.
