Lithotripsy is a surgical method that is used for crumbling the stones, stored in Bladder, Kidney, or Ureter through the employment of high shock-waves. Lithotripsy procedures are of several types, varying from size, number and diameter of stones. In the 90 % of cases, lithotripsy totally draws off the stones, and the best of the procedure is takes a few days for recovery. It is the efficiency and ability of lithotripsy equipment that plays a pivotal role in pulverizing stones. Earlier, lithotriptors send out the shockwaves by water in a tub, a patient used to be wet and immersed with water. But now, the lithotripsy machine gives out the sound waves through a padded cushion on the table where patients sit. That is a simple, comfortable, and effective procedure.
