Kidney & Stone Management

Durability and Versatility - Combined

Since the first stone removal procedure, surgeons have faced the challenges posed by navigation through delicate urological anatomy while safely and efficiently resolving a variety of clinical problems. As technology and knowledge have advanced, patients have become more informed about their options and better tools have enabled safer, less invasive surgical solutions.

Some examples are:
