Kidney stones or nephrolithiasis is a treatable medical condition where many mineral clumps accumulate on the different parts of the kidney.

PERCUTANEOUS NEPHROLITHOTOMY is one of the important methods of treatments that we undertake for removing kidney stones that are quite large(>2cm diameter). Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is used for the circumstances when the stones are large in size and number, scattered over a large surface area.


After the patient had been prepared for the surgery after anaesthesia, a 1cm incision is made on the kidney so as to pass the tube into the kidney to perform the stone removal. X-Ray imaging is used to assist the entry of the tube.

The procedure is minimally invasive which can be done by a keyhole surgery which radically decreases the chances of causing infections after the surgery. It also decreases the recovery time needed.
