program details
ESWL does not cause damage to the body as it does not involve opening of the
abdomen.
Patients can receive treatment on an outpatient basis because anesthesia is not
necessary.
The use of newly developed electrodes enables more effective lithotripsy and shortens duration of treatment (about 30 min per treatment).
The new shock generator reduces pain during treatment.
In the case of small kidney or ureteral stones, outpatient treatment is selectable.
You can just lie on a bed during treatment.
