Ureteroscopy

Specialty of Urology

Ureteroscopy is the primary technique for treating small to medium-sized kidney stones located in the urinary tract.

This intervention is usually performed under general anesthesia, and involves the introduction of a ureteroscope into the urethra and bladder to the ureter or kidney. Through this canal can be made x-rays with contrast so that the urologist can see where the kidney stone is, as well as if there are other anomalies. Also, once the calculation is located, it can be extracted or reduced by laser.
