Kidney Stones

Kidney StonesKidney stones are painful and can be a hindrance to your everyday life. It is not something that people want to live with. If you are experiencing symptoms of kidney stones which include blood in the urine, booking a consultation with Dr. Shawket Alkhayal will offer patients the best hope for treatment. He has extensive training and is specialized at treating kidney stones using shockwave therapy which is a non-invasive treatment that applies sonic waves to break up the stones, after which the fragments will pass with the patient’s urine.

Laser fragmentation is another treatment method that can be used to treat kidney stones. This surgery can be performed in a single day and has a high success rate at clearing kidney stones. Dr. Shawket Alkhayal will use the appropriate treatment method depending on the patient’s condition and severity.

Patients are encouraged to consult with our experienced and expert specialist. We will first perform a blood and urine test, ultrasound scan, kidney x-ray or even a CT scan. Depending on the results we will proceed with treatment planning.

We also encourage our patients to drink plenty of water, 6-8 glasses of water daily to stay hydrated. As some patients have a history of kidney stones, we can also prescribe treatment methods to prevent recurrence of kidney stones. Dr. Shawket Alkhayal will select the right treatment to get the most favourable outcome. To learn how to prevent kidney stones or find the best treatment options available, we request our patients to visit the Alkhayal Medical Center to obtain more information.
