RIRS is new technology for endoscopic removal of stones from kidney through natural passages in other words, no hole, no cut, no stitch surgery.

A flexible ureteroscope is passed through urine pipe in to the kidney and stones are fragmented to dust with laser. The stone pieces are then removed with a basket. As there is no incision/cut the patient recovery is quick and fast. 100W Holmium laser pulverizes the stone completely leading to high clearance rates with minimum risk and complications.

More than 1200 successful cases
