A large number of patients who have Kidney Stones or Ureteric Stones suffer from recurrent pain. These stones also cause damage to the kidneys and the ureter. In some cases these kidney stones cause infection in the kidney which can result in kidney failure. Some kinds of food are known to cause stones in the body. Drinking lesser water is also a known cause for stones in the body. Smaller stones get passed through the urine by drinking 2-3 litres of water on the advice of your doctor. Larger stones get stuck into the kidney or the ureter and may require other methods or surgery to remove them before they cause irreparable damage to the organs.
While larger kidney stones are removed through a surgery called PCNL in which a small incision is made into your back and the surgeon enters the kidney to first crush the stones into smaller pieces and then remove them. Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is the minimally invasive procedure to remove the kidney stones. This is also the most widely used and one of the best methods for surgical removal of kidney stones. In this case if the kidney stone is big in size then the doctor will break the stone and take out most of the pieces during the surgery and very small particle pass through urine.
Dr Virendra Dhankar is one of the best Urologist for doing the PCNL Surgery for the removal of large stones from the kidneys. Dr Dhankar has more than 22 years of experience. The cost of PCNL Surgery is Rs. 45,000 - 55,000 with one day of stay in the hospital. For stopping recurrence of kidney stones the patient needs to have proper levels of Vitamin D, drink adequate amount of water and avoid certain foods which are known to cause stones in the body.
If you have an individual health insurance policy then this surgery is covered after a period of 2 years from the date of inception of the policy. However if you are a beneficiary of company given policy then the surgery is covered from day one. Always go through the terms of your health insurance policy like room rent capping and co-payment to avoid any kind of financial shocks later on.
