Urethral Stone Treatments & Surgery
How Devasya Hospital helps to cure Urethral stones?
Fragmentation of urethral stones using a holmium laser is a commonly employed method in the treatment of urethral stones. The holmium laser delivers high-energy pulses that can break the stone into smaller fragments, allowing for easier passage or removal.

Urethral stones can be caused by various factors, including urinary tract infections, dehydration, certain medications, metabolic disorders, an enlarged prostate gland, urinary tract abnormalities, or a diet high in certain minerals.
To diagnose urethral stones, healthcare professionals may order tests such as a physical examination, urine analysis, imaging tests (such as X-rays, ultrasound, or CT scans), or cystoscopy (a procedure that uses a thin tube with a camera to examine the urethra and bladder).
The symptoms of urethral stones can include severe pain during urination, frequent urge to urinate, blood in the urine, difficulty or inability to pass urine, cloudy or foul-smelling urine, abdominal or back pain, and a visible or palpable lump in the urethra.
Early signs of urethral stones can include mild discomfort or pain during urination, increased frequency of urination, occasional blood in the urine, and a slight disruption in the flow of urine.
Complications of urethral stones can include urinary tract infections, urinary retention (inability to pass urine), urethral strictures (narrowing of the urethra), hydronephrosis (build-up of urine in the kidneys), kidney damage, or the formation of recurrent stones.
To help prevent urethral stones, it is recommended to drink plenty of water to maintain proper hydration, limit the intake of foods high in oxalate (such as spinach and chocolate), reduce sodium and animal protein consumption, maintain a healthy weight, and follow a balanced diet that promotes overall urinary health.
