Kidney Stone Therapy
Non-Surgical Kidney Stone Therapy at Saint Joseph London
When you have kidney stones, time seems to stand still as your pain increases. Fortunately, at Saint Joseph London we have the latest technology for treating stones without surgery. The Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripter (ESWL) uses a technique where shock waves break up stones that form in the kidney and ureters, so they can more comforably pass through the body.
This lithotripter is the only permanent, in-house unit between Knoxville, TN and Lexington, KY.
Appointments are available Monday through Friday for your convenience. Ask your physician if this treatment is right for you.
