Urology and Lithotripsy
Urology and Lithotripsy

Department of Urology and Lithotripsy

Urology is the branch of medicine that focuses on the diseases of the male and female urinary-tract system and the male reproductive organs. The urinary system is responsible for the elimination of waste material from the body, and to maintain the blood volume, blood pressure, blood pH, and the levels of electrolytes and other metabolites. Different urological conditions include the infection of the urinary tract, the presence of kidney stones, problems with controlling urine, and other prostate complications. The symptoms of such conditions may include a feeling of tiredness, lack of appetite, blood in urine, and vomiting.
Hameed Latif Hospital also offers the procedure of Lithotripsy to treat kidney stones that are too large to pass through the urinary tract. Using focused ultrasonic shock waves, the large stone is broken into smaller stones which can easily pass through the urine. Using this guided technique, we help patients to avoid unnecessary invasive surgical procedures for stone removal.
Hameed Latif Hospital has on its roster some of the best urologists in the country offering comprehensive urology services to diagnose and treat diseases of the urinary tract. We bring advanced skills and expertise to treat the most complex conditions affecting men and women of all ages. With our department’s multidisciplinary leadership in urology and lithotripsy, we have become a pioneer in urological care and provide a complete range of state-of-the-art in-patient and out-patient clinical services to ensure your health and well-being.

What are the different types of kidney stones one might develop?

Kidney stones are substances, usually minerals and salts, which are accumulated in your urinary tract, causing you severe discomfort and pain. They are often developed by drinking less water than normal and having a diet rich in calcium, uric acid, or other crystals. Depending upon your diet, you may develop different types of kidney stones, including.

  • Calcium Stones: Calcium, a normal part of a healthy diet used in bones and muscles, is normally flushed out with the rest of the urine. However, excess calcium not used by the body may combine with other waste products to form a stone.
  • Struvite stones: Struvite stones, composed of magnesium, phosphate, and ammonia, may form after a urinary tract infection.
  • Uric acid stones: Uric acid stones may occur when urine is too acidic, as in certain conditions, such as gout or malignancies.
  • Cystine stones: Cystine stones consist of cystine, one of the building blocks that make up muscles, nerves, and other parts of the body.
