ESWL is a non-invasive procedure, which means it doesn’t require surgery. Non-invasive procedures are generally safer and easier to recover from than invasive procedures.
We empower our patients at all life stages with comprehensive kidney care, ranging from concierge medical services and resources to advanced treatment options.
What does the treatment involve?
You will be positioned on an operating table. A soft, water-filled cushion may be placed on your abdomen or behind your kidney. The body is positioned so that the stone can be targeted precisely with the shock wave. About 1-2 thousand shock waves are needed to crush the stones. The complete treatment takes about 45 to 60 minutes.
