Kidney Stones: Treatment Options

Urologist, Dr. Steven Savage, talks about the different types of kidney stones such as calcium stones and uric acid stones and explains how kidney stones are diagnosed. Dr. Savage discusses the advances in recent years to treat kidney stones using techniques like shock waves or extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy and ureteroscope, which is when a long wire with a camera attached to it is inserted it into the patient's urethra and passed up through the bladder to the ureter where the stone is located.
