Are lasers used for treating kidney stones?
Q: Please let me know whether there is any laser technology operation for treating kidney stones. What is the success rate and what would be the cost? Also please let me know which hospitals in Mumbai are having this facility?
A:Yes. Holmium lasers have found a place in the management of kidney stones but I would advise you to look for a urologist who has complete armamentarium for stone treatment. In Bombay, Hinduja, Jaslok, Leelavati and Bombay Hospitals have such facilities, to the best of my knowledge.
