RIRS (Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery)

Dr. NARESH GARG Provide Best Laser Stone Surgery at Jaipur, Rajasthan

RIRS is performed to remove stones without making any incisions on the kidney while using a laser and a viewing tube called a fiberoptic endoscope that goes through the urethra into the kidney. It is performed under general, local or spinal anesthesia. This procedure requires a specialized urologist who is specifically trained in RIRS.

There are several advantages of opting for RIRS over open surgery like achieving quicker resolution of problems, elimination of prolonged post-surgery pain and a much faster recovery period.

What is Retrograde Intrarenal surgery?

RIRS (Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery) is the method of viewing tube which is known as a fiberoptic endoscope which is passed during the surgery to the kidney. The fiber-optic is flexible which makes it easy to bend with the renal system and it can easily go into the kidney and ureter. The tube is moved to the ureter to the part which collects urine and then it helps in visualizing different parts of the kidney. Following that, the thin laser fiber is passed through the stone and scope which are powdered into very small particles which makes it easier to wash out with urine or through saline irrigation.

The best part of the treatment is, no incision is needed and the patient is given either local or general anesthesia. Our specialist urologist will perform the surgery to give you the best treatment.

Who can get benefit from RIRS?

The surgery is needed to perform inside the kidney without the need of getting any outside cuts. The instrument is moved up and through the urethra, and then placed into the kidney with the help of a live X-ray i.e. fluoroscopy. The procedure is minimally invasive, and it is a perfect option to treat complex cases with ease.
