Ureteric Stone surgery (URS)
This procedure uses a ureteroscopy (a thin tube with a light on it) to locate a stone in the kidney or ureter. During the procedure, the surgeon will insert the ureteroscopy into your urethra and through the urinary tract until the stone is located.
How is ureteral stone removed?
To remove a smaller stone in your ureter or kidney, your doctor may pass a thin lighted tube (ureteroscopy) equipped with a camera through your urethra and bladder to your ureter. Once the stone is located, special tools can snare the stone or break it into pieces that will pass in your urine.
