Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL)
ESWL is a treatment that decreases the need for surgery in many patients with kidney stones. Shock waves transmitted through the skin shatter the stone with little effect on surrounding tissue. Its variable shockwave frequency and multiple power levels allow for efficient treatment of kidney stones with less pain for patients.
Some benefits of the ESWL treatment include less pain, non-invasive, less time spent in the hospital, low radiation exposure, and shorter treatment times.
To learn more about the ESWL treatment and if it's right for you, call 906.483.1040.
