Lithotripsy is a medical procedure used to treat kidney stones. It may
also be used to treat stones in other organs, such as the gall bladder
or the liver. Kidney stones are collections of solid minerals that sometimes
form in the kidneys. Healthy kidneys do not have these stone-like formations.
Most stones pass out of the body naturally during urination.
A mobile lithotripsy unit provides patients with a local site for the removal
of kidney stones through non-surgical means.
