    A kidney stone can be defined as a hard object that is commonly found inside the kidney and is formed due to the chemicals and urines. Note all stones are made up of the same crystals, normally four types of kidney stones are available that include uric acid, calcium oxide, cystine, and struvite. This can be, however, be found in other places along the urinary tract including the following:

    Urine has various types of waste particles in the dissolved form and when the amount of waste particles gets high in too few liquid crystals starts to for. These crystals further attract other varieties of elements towards it and get bound with it to form a large solid. This will slowly increase until and unless these are removed from the body. Nevertheless, the chemicals are further passed in the urine with the help of the body master chemist, commonly called kidney. Furthermore, in most people, the amount of urinal liquid is high which further helps to wash these chemicals with the added urine.

A small cage is used by the urologist doctor to hold and bring out the stone and remove it, after this it is further sent to the laboratories for further analysis.

    Lithotripsy

    This is an extracorporeal shock wave that uses sound waves to break up large stones. This is an uncomfortable procedure that might further require anesthesia. Bruising on the abdomen and the back and bleeding around the kidney can further be caused by this.

    Tunnel Surgery

    The doctor performs a small incision in the back and then the stones are removed with the help of this surgery. A person may demand this process under the following conditions:

    • Unmanageable pain
    • Excessive growth of the stone
    • Obstruction and infection or damage is caused by the stone

    After enduring knee pain for the past decade, my mother sought advice from various doctors in Nagpur, Nashik, and Pune. They all recommended knee replacement surgery, but it was only when we discovered Dr. Aashish Arbat and the option of robotics surgery that we made the decision to proceed.

    The surgery took place on June 23, 2023, and it turned out to be an incredible experience. To our astonishment, on the morning of June 24, my mother was able to stand on her own legs and even take a few steps. This remarkable progress was made possible due to the advanced assistance of robotics arm and Artificial Intelligence.

    Dr. Aashish Arbat is an exceptional and highly experienced surgeon, and we are immensely grateful for his expertise. We also extend our appreciation to his colleagues, Dr. Sharma and Dr. Ram, for their excellent skills and compassionate nature. Our heartfelt thanks go out to the entire team for enabling my mother to live a pain-free life
