RIRS Surgery Procedure

RIRS Surgery uses a laser and a fiberoptic endoscope, a viewing tube that passes through the urethra and into the kidney to remove stones without making any incisions on the kidney. Under general, local, or spinal anaesthetic, it is carried out. An RIRS urology specialist like Dr Ashish Saini, at Excel Advanced Urology Center with RIRS training, is well known for this surgery.

About Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery (RIRS Surgery)

RIRS Urology is the method of viewing your urinary tube using a camera (fiberoptic flexible ureteroscope) which can reach up to the kidney from the urine orifice. The fibre optic is flexible which makes it easy to bend with the renal system and it can easily go into the kidney and ureter.

The tube is moved to the ureter, which collects urine and then helps visualise different parts of the kidney. Following that, the thin laser fiber (thulium fiber laser)is passed through the stone and scope which are powdered into tiny particles or dust which makes it easier to wash out with urine or through saline irrigation.

The best part of the treatment is, no incision is needed and the patient is given either spinal or general anaesthesia. Our specialist urologist(Dr Ashish Saini) will perform the surgery to give you the best treatment. Kidney stones up to the size of 5 cm can be treated by this method. If stones are present in both kidneys, they can be treated together at the same time. The stones can be cleared well by this method.
