I am Dr. Piyush Singhania. I am a professor of Urology in M J Medical college Navi Mumbai and working as a consultant urologist in various hospitals in new Bombay.

Today I would like to talk about one of the very common disease conditions that we treat now at daily practice,  i.e.  kidney stones. As you all know , kidney stones is a fairly common occurrence in our practice . We are treating around 500 cases of kidney stones every year. And around 400 cases are requiring surgical treatments. We’re involved in active results in the field of kidney stones for last 13 years and have published several papers in various scientific journals of urology based on our experience of treating hundreds of patients of kidney stones .

Kidney stones can be of various sizes ranging from few mm to many cm , sometimes as large as 4-5 cm in size. Smaller stones pass out of the body in urine giving minimal discomfort to the patient. But sometimes the larger stones can block the kidneys and cause significant pain and bleeding in urine.

Fortunately there have been lot of advancements in the field of kidney stones and now a days most of the stones even as large as 5-6 cm can be treated by endoscopic means and by the use of laser without giving any cut or stitches to the patient. Once treated , kidney stones can even re-occur in a patient. To prevent the recurrence of kidney stones, we should drink lot of water , around 2-3 litres in a day and should avoid high salt diet and non-vegetarian food. Today in Navi Mumbai , we are offering state of the art and advanced endoscopic treatment in patients and costs according to their financial needs and choice.
