Florida Urology Physicians - Spotlight on - Kidney Stones
(Follow this link to the full company description and treatments associated with the Kidney)
One procedure that the Cape Coral, Florida Urology Physicians specializes in is the treatment of kidney stones. When urine becomes too concentrated, it crystallizes and builds up inside the kidney, resulting in painful kidney stones that can be as small as a grain of sand or as large as a golf ball. Caucasians are more prone to developing kidney stones than African Americans and men are more prone than women. The typical age range for developing kidney stones is between 20 and 40. Unfortunately, if you’ve had kidney stones in the past, there is a 50 percent chance that you might develop more in the future. There are several different treatments for kidney stones that our Cape Coral urologist can perform depending on the size of the stone, how many there are, and its location. Shock wave lithotripsy is a completely non-invasive treatment where an energy source directed at the location of the stone or stones causes a shock powerful enough to dissolve the stones into smaller fragments that can be passed more easily. During an utereroscopy, a small fiber-optic instrument called a utererscope is used to visualize the stone and if the stone is small enough, it can be removed with a small basket-like device or shattered if it is a large stone. To treat large stones that can’t be extracted by the previous two methods, percutaneous nephrolithotomy is most commonly used. Unlike open surgery, this treatment requires only a very small incision in order to better access and shatter the stone. Open surgery, which involves a large incision into the kidney or utereral wall to access the stone, is used only for very complicated cases.
