Renal Calculi

Kidney stones (also called renal calculi, nephrolithiasis or urolithiasis) are hard deposits made of minerals and salts that form inside your kidneys.

Diet, excess body weight, some medical conditions, and certain supplements and medications are among the many causes of kidney stones. 

Why Kidney Specialist?

Endoscopic surgery is now used to operate on the kidneys. You need a skilled kidney stone or kidney Stone specialist to take the appropriate steps to cure your kidney condition. If the kidney is located in the urethra, surgery is carried out using a small telescope. Modern technologies have eliminated the need for kidney stone surgery. Older operations call for sutures. This may result in kidney damage and pain. Modern surgery, in contrast, is safer. This is known as URSL. Rocks can be broken up using laser or ultrasonic technology.

PCNL: If the kidney stone is inside the kidney, it is taken out through a hole made in the kidney. The procedure is known as PCNL.

Symptoms

A kidney stone usually will not cause symptoms until it moves around within your kidney or passes into your ureters — the tubes connecting the kidneys and the bladder. If it becomes lodged in the ureters, it may block the flow of urine and cause the kidney to swell and the ureter to spasm, which can be very painful. At that point, you may experience these signs and symptoms:

  • Severe, sharp pain in the side and back, below the ribs
  • Pain that radiates to the lower abdomen and groin
  • Pain that comes in waves and fluctuates in intensity
  • Pain or burning sensation while urinating

Causes

Kidney stones often have no definite, single cause, although several factors may increase your risk.

Kidney stones form when your urine contains more crystal-forming substances — such as calcium, oxalate and uric acid — than the fluid in your urine can dilute. At the same time, your urine may lack substances that prevent crystals from sticking together, creating an ideal environment for kidney stones to form.
