Kidney Stones - Overview :

Kidney stones are formed from substances(minerals and salts ) in your urine. The substances that combine into stones normally pass through your urinary system. When they don’t, it’s because there isn’t enough urine volume, causing the substances to become highly concentrated and to crystalize. The stone-forming substances are:

  • Calcium.
  • Oxalate.
  • Uric acid.
  • Phosphate.
  • Cystine (rare).
  • Xanthine (rare).

Most of the kidney stones which are small in size (<4 mm) usually pass in urine along the urinary tract without any symptoms . when the size of the stone is larger (>4mm) they usually obstruct along their passage and cause symptoms like severe loin/back  pain , vomitings , fever which is primarily due to swelling of kidney proximal to the obstructed stone . These stones will not pass along the urine and require surgical removal either open or endoscopically depending on the location and size of the stone .

Many kidney stone treatment options are available depending on the stone location and size which are as the following – Kidney stones( PCNL/RIRS/ESWL-laser kidney stone treatment) and Ureteric Stones( laser URSL/laser ureteric stone removal ) and for BLADDER or urethral stones(CLT- cysto lithotripsy -laser)


what are the CAUSES of kidney stones?

Kidney stones often have no definite, single cause, although several factors may increase your risk :

Factors that increase your risk of developing kidney stones include:

Family or personal history. If someone in your family has had kidney stones, you’re more likely to develop stones, too. If you’ve already had one or more kidney stones, you’re at increased risk of developing another.

Dehydration. Not drinking enough water each day can increase your risk of kidney stones. People who live in warm, dry climates and those who sweat a lot may be at higher risk than others.


Certain diets. Eating a diet that’s high in protein, sodium (salt) and sugar may increase your risk of some types of kidney stones. This is especially true with a high-sodium diet. Too much salt in your diet increases the amount of calcium your kidneys must filter and significantly increases your risk of kidney stones.

Obesity. High body mass index (BMI), large waist size and weight gain have been linked to an increased risk of kidney stones.

Digestive diseases and surgery. Gastric bypass surgery, inflammatory bowel disease or chronic diarrhea can cause changes in the digestive process that affect your absorption of calcium and water, increasing the amounts of stone-forming substances in your urine.

Other medical conditions such as renal tubular acidosis, cystinuria, hyperparathyroidism and repeated urinary tract infections also can increase your risk of kidney stones.

Certain supplements and medications, such as vitamin C, dietary supplements, laxatives (when used excessively), calcium-based antacids, and certain medications used to treat migraines or depression, can increase your risk of kidney stones.

what are the SYMPTOMS of kidney stones ?

  • A kidney stone normally does not produce any symptoms until it is large in size or travels about within your kidney or enters your ureters — the tubes that link your kidneys and bladder. If it becomes lodged in the ureters, it can obstruct the flow of urine, causing the kidney to enlarge, which can be excruciatingly painful. At that moment, you may notice one or more of the following i symptoms:
  1. Sharp discomfort on the side of stone and back, just behind the rib cage
  2. Radiating pain in the lower abdomen and groin (back to front )
  3. Blood in urine
  4. Difficulty in passing urine
  5. pain or burning sensation during urination
  6. Vomiting and nausea
  7. Fever and chills (if infection is present )

How do we DIAGNOSE kidney stones ?

  •  If your urologist believes that you have a kidney stone according to your symptoms , he/she  may advise you to undergo  the following diagnostic tests and procedures:
    • Blood tests: Blood tests usually advised include complete blood picture (to see for infection) and serum creatinine (to know the effect of stone blockade on kidney function ) . Other tests advised may suggest that you have an excess of calcium or uric acid in your blood. .

    • Urine analysis: Complete urine analysis (CUE) for any urinary tract infection & 24-hour urine collection test may reveal that you are excreting either too many stone-forming minerals(calcium/oxalate/uric acid/ phosphate). Your doctor may recommend you collect two urine samples on two consecutive days for this test.

    • Imaging: Even small stones with accurate size and location can be detected using high-speed or dual-energy computerised tomography of kidney /ureter/and bladder (CT-KUB). Because simple abdominal X-rays might overlook tiny kidney stones,and cannot detect all types of stones ,it is usedc less frequently.

    Another imaging technique for diagnosing kidney stones is ultrasound, a noninvasive test that is rapid and straightforward to administer.

what is the TREATMENT of kidney stones ?

Once diagnosed, your healthcare provider will first determine if you even need treatment. Some smaller kidney stones may leave your system when you urinate. This can be very painful. If your provider decides that you do need treatment, your options include medications and surgery.

Medications. Medications may be prescribed to:

  • Decrease pain. Your healthcare provider may recommend that you take an over-the-counter medication like ibuprofen or, if you’re in the emergency room, an IV narcotic.
  • Manage nausea/vomiting.
  • Relax your ureter so that the stones pass. Commonly prescribed medicines include tamsulosin (Flomax®) and nifedipine (Adamant® or Procardia®).

You should ask your healthcare provider before you take ibuprofen. This drug can increase the risk of kidney failure if taken while you’re having an acute attack of kidney stones — especially in those who have a history of kidney disease and associated illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension and obesity.

Surgery. There are four types of surgeries used to treat kidney stones. The first three are minimally invasive, meaning that the surgeon enters your body through a natural opening (like your urethra), or makes a small incision.

  • Ureteroscopy: To perform this procedure, a small instrument called an ureteroscope is inserted in your urethra, through your bladder and into a ureter. This instrument shows the kidney stones and then retrieves them in a surgical “basket,” or breaks them apart using a laser. These smaller pieces of the kidney stones are then easily able to exit your body through your urinary tract.
  • Shockwave lithotripsy: In this procedure, you’re placed on a special type of surgical table or tub. High-energy shockwaves are sent through water to the stone(s). The shockwaves break apart the stones, which are then more easily able to exit your body.
  • Percutaneous nephrolithotomy: When kidney stones can’t be treated by the other procedures — either because there are too many stones, the stones are too large or heavy or because of their location — percutaneous nephrolithotomy is considered. In this procedure, a tube is inserted directly into your kidney through a small incision in your back. Stones are then disintegrated by an ultrasound probe and suctioned out so that you don’t have to pass any fragments. A urethral stent is placed after the procedure (an internal tube from the kidney to the bladder which is removed one week later). Patients are typically kept overnight for observation.
  • Open stone surgery: A longer cut is used during this surgery. Compared to minimally invasive procedures, it’s rarely performed (0.3% to 0.7% of cases).

Being new to Hyderabad, luckily came to know about Doctor Puneet (Vascular Surgeon - Diabetic Foot care) through Google (Good) Reviews.Hospital was good with multi specialist doctors. Clean environment with seating facilities, restroom, drinking water. Receptionist, nurses, pharmacy staffs were so kind & helpful. As far as i know, it is Walk - In to meet any Doctor (First cum first served). Hospital is equipped with latest technology medical machine.Met Dr. Puneet Joopali for Diabetic Vascular issue for my elderly MIL. We were very happy & satisfied after consulting Doc. He speaks well, highly knowledgeable, easy to converse, explains well. Met him again to clear a doubt even without an appointment. He was kind enough to explain. I got his number & consulted him for general medical advice. He instantly replied over message. Very difficult to find doctors of this type who are easy to approach & get best advice.For Diabetics, Dr. Puneeth directed us to Dr. SVP Reddy. He was also easy to talk with, consulted well & with his medication sugar level is under control.Only one disadvantage we felt was that the prescribed tablets were Hyderabad manufactured & they were available only in hospital pharmacy. We couldn't get it in outside big pharmacy in Hyderabad city. Thanks to both doctors and also Max health Staffs.

It was my first ever dental treatment. I have multiple problems of yellowish teeth, swollen gums and cavities. I got my teeth cleaned, gum surgery was done and cavities were filled with high quality cement. It was quite a great experience being treated by Dr Manjusha madam. She made me feel comfortable. The treatment was painless. I would recommend this clinic if you have any kind of dental problems.
