Retrograde Intra-Renal Surgery
RIRS is new technology for endoscopic removal of stones from kidney through natural passages in other words, no hole, no cut, no stitch.
A flexible ureteroscope is passed through urine pipe in to the kidney and stones are fragmented to dust with laser. The stone pieces are then removed with a basket.
Typically a stone can be removed in a single sitting more than 90% of the time with hardly any complication. As there is no incision/cut the patient recovery is quick and fast with early return to work thereby saving money and time.
All types of stones are easily fragmented with laser energy. 100W Holmium laser pulverizes the stone completely leading to high clearance rates with minimum risk and complications.
