Lithotripsy is a medical procedure that crushes hardened masses such as kidney stones, bezoars or gallstones with the help of shockwaves. The preferred treatment for a stone of less than 1cm stone is shockwave lithotripsy that breaks the stone into tiny pieces, so it can more easily travel through the urinary tract and pass through the body. The right specialist to consult for Lithotripsy is an experienced Urologist. The success rate for the treatment remains around 50-75%. A few possible risks post-treatment include infection, high blood pressure, kidney damage, UTI, etc.
