Bladder Stones Treatment in Pune

Bladder stones are hard masses of minerals that develop in your urinary bladder. These minerals are made of calcium or magnesium salts. They crystallize when the urine is highly concentrated or when the person remains dehydrated for a longer period of time. While the small stones pass easily on drinking excess water, it’s the larger ones that require urinary bladder stone treatment to be removed. If the treatment of urinary stones is not done on time, it may result in serious health complications such as Urinary Tract Infection. The best Urinary Tract Infection Treatment in Pune is provided at Urolife as well.

Urinary Bladder Stone Treatment & removal

What Are The Causes Of Bladder Stones?

The urine starts to form mineral crystals when the bladder is not empty completely. Because of this, the urine becomes concentrated urine, which in turn crystallizes and forms stones.

Some other causes of bladder stones include:

Infection: Infections caused due to bacteria or other organisms. Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) is the common cause of bladder stones. While urinary infection is common in women, men are more prone to bladder stones.

Enlarged Prostate Gland: An enlarged prostate gland presses against the urethra which interferes with the urination process. This causes the bladder to not be emptied fully and thus results in bladder stones.

Weak Bladder: The weakening of your bladder walls forms pouches. The urine is collected and stored in these pouches. Later, this stored urine forms the bladder stones.

Neurogenic Bladder: Damage to the nerve that carries information between the bladder and nervous system may result in the bladder not getting emptied fully. The damage could be due to spinal injury or any other problem. It breaks communication between the mind and the bladder.

Damaged Urethra: A damaged urethra narrows down due to infection and blocks the flow of urine. The urethra can be damaged due to a disease, or illness. This causes the urine to remain in the bladder.

Kidney Stones: The presence of small kidney stones may result in bladder stones as they travel down the tubes that carry urine from kidneys to the bladder.

How long can it take for a stone to pass? With medical expulsive therapy, most small stones (less than 5 or 6 mm) will typically pass within a few days to a few weeks. Provided you are in good health, you can try for up to 6 weeks to pass a stone, although most patients elect for earlier intervention.
Drinking lots of water may help a small stone pass naturally. However, because bladder stones are often caused by difficulty emptying your bladder completely, extra water may not be enough to make the stone pass. Most of the time, you’ll need to have the stones removed.

It was my 2012 when I was detected with kidney stones. Since, then I had 3 recurrences, 5 surgeries, and 2 times incomplete stone clearance. It was 6th time, I was about to go under the knife. I was totally frustrated & fed up with the hospital smell. This time, I wanted a solid solution with 100% assurance of clearance. I consulted at least 5-6 doctors before choosing one. Many of them were unsure of results, as I have a tendency for recurrence. So, in the process, I met Dr. Shaikh with reports. I was expecting the same words. But, I didn’t have a chance. He was quite sure about stone clearance. I felt relaxed & happy, as there was the hope of a solution. Then, after thorough consultation and planning, He operated on me. At end of the surgery, I had 3 things, 10 mm stone, 100% stone clearance, and Happy life. I thank Dr. Irfan from bottom of my heart. He was like an angel to me. It now 2 years from my last surgery, I living a pain-free life. I will definitely recommend any kidney stone patient who is suffering from stone. Thank you
