How laser lithotripsy Works?

Laser lithotripsy is a way to treat kidney stones. This treatment uses a laser to break kidney stones into tiny pieces. For several hours after the procedure you may have a burning feeling when you urinate. You may feel the urge to go even if you don't need to. This feeling should go away within a day. Drinking a lot of water can help. Your doctor also may advise you to take medicine that numbs the burning. This medicine is called phenazopyridin (Pyridium).Your doctor may prescribe an antibiotic. This will help prevent an infection. You may have some blood in your urine for 2 or 3 days.

Your doctor may have placed a small tube inside one of your ureters. Ureters are the tubes that connect the kidneys to the bladder. The small tube the doctor may have placed is called a stent. It may help the stone fragments pass through your body. Your doctor may remove the stent in a few weeks.
