Kidney Stone Removal

What are Kidney stones?

Kidney stones, or renal calculi, are solid mineral and salt deposits that form within the kidneys or urinary tract. They can vary in size, from tiny grains to larger, jagged stones. These stones may remain in the kidneys or travel through the urinary tract, causing pain and discomfort.

What are the causes?

Kidney stones can form due to a range of factors. Dehydration, stemming from reduced fluid intake, can result in concentrated urine, elevating the risk of stone development. Dietary choices play a role, especially with a high intake of minerals like calcium, oxalate, and uric acid, which contribute to stone formation. A genetic predisposition through family history may increase the likelihood of developing kidney stones. Additionally, certain medical conditions, including hyperparathyroidism and urinary tract infections, can create an environment conducive to the formation of kidney stones. Understanding these diverse factors is essential for identifying and addressing the risk factors associated with kidney stone formation.

What are potential symptoms?

Characterised by distinctive symptoms, kidney stones often bring about intense pain in the back, side, or lower abdomen as the stone traverses the urinary tract. A persistent urge to urinate, coupled with minimal urine output, is commonly observed. Hematuria, marked by pink, brown, or red urine due to blood presence, is another prevalent symptom. The discomfort associated with kidney stones may also induce nausea and vomiting. Recognising these indicators is essential for timely diagnosis and proper management of kidney stone-related issues.

What happens after?

Recovery timelines differ depending on the chosen procedure, but the majority of patients find themselves back to their regular activities within just a few days. It's crucial to prioritise proper hydration to ward off any potential stone comebacks, ensuring you stay consistent with the prescribed pain relief medication. Consider making adjustments to your diet based on the specific composition of your stones.

Our procedures

At Get Well Soon we specialise in elective procedures. Elective surgery is different from urgent or emergency surgery, where the patient’s life might be in danger but
we understand that for many patients, these conditions
an often be debilitating and painful.

Elective procedures are often the sort of operations that the NHS are unable to prioritise, so seeing a doctor privately may be the only way you can have your
condition treated quickly.
