Lithotripsy is a non-invasive medical procedure that uses shock waves to break down kidney stones, allowing the body to pass them naturally. We understand that dealing with kidney stones can be a painful and distressing experience for patients. That's why we offer a range of patient-friendly lithotripsy services to ensure that our patients receive the highest level of care and comfort throughout their treatment.
Meitra’s experienced and compassionate team of urologists and support staff are dedicated to providing personalized care to each patient, working closely with them to create a treatment plan that is tailored to their specific needs and concerns. We use advanced shockwave technology to break down kidney stones, which are then passed out of the body naturally.
We also understand that the lithotripsy procedure can be a source of anxiety for some patients. That's why we take the time to explain the process and answer any questions or concerns our patients may have. At Meitra, we are committed to providing the most advanced medical treatments and technologies to our patients, while also prioritizing their comfort and care. If you or a loved one needs lithotripsy, trust us to provide safe, effective, and patient-friendly care. Contact us today to schedule a consultation with one of our expert urologists.
