Intracorporeal lithotripsy (breaking of stones using endoscopes) using the pneumatic lithotripsy is also available.
Percutaneous renal surgery done by 1 cm hole in the kidney to remove stones after breaking it into smaller pieces. Even bigger stones and stag can be safely managed with this. Advantage of this procedure is minimal pain and discomfort and shorter hospital stay i.e less than 48 hours.
Intra-renal stone surgery by flexible scopes and Intra-corporeal lithotripsy
