Kidneys are instrumental organs responsible for waste management and elimination of toxins from the body. The smooth functioning of kidneys is extremely instrumental for good health. Any hindrance in the functioning of kidneys due to stone formation necessitates surgery for kidney stone removal. Kidneys are responsible not only for waste excretion but also for regulating blood pressure and red blood cell count, maintaining electrolytes and water balance in the body.
Kidney stones are formed in the body when there is an imbalance of chemicals in the urine. Stones also are a result of inadequate water and fluid consumption. When stones are minute, the doctor may prescribe medication for passing the stone naturally. But when the stones are of larger size, surgery is recommended for extracting them. Stones larger than 5 mm require surgery to remove them. The medical term for denoting this process of stones removal from kidney, liver and gall bladder is known as lithotripsy.
