What Can I Expect After Treatment

Last Updated Thursday, May 26, 2011 12:30:31 PM


Laser or pneumatic lithotripsy is usually done as an outpatient procedure. Most people are able to go home the same day of the procedure. Often a urinary stent will be placed between the kidney and the bladder; the stent will facilitate the passage of stone fragments. The stent will most often be removed by your urologist in his/her office at the appropriate time.
