Treatment of stones in the kidneys as well as in the urinary tract:
The causes of kidney and urinary tract stones are complex, data from studies indicates that about 10-15% of the country’s population suffers from kidney stone disease. The urology department of “Vita Hospital” has a team of experienced specialists and state-of-the-art equipment, enabling extremely effective and permanent treatment of kidney and urinary tract stones.
Extracorporeal lithotripsy (ECLT):
Extracorporeal lithotripsy is a modern method using a lithotripter – a machine for breaking down stones in the kidneys and in the urinary tract. The success rate of ECLT places the procedure among the most successful in the treatment of kidney stone disease – more than 80% of cases are positively affected by the treatment.

Despite the proven effectiveness of Extracorporeal lithotripsy for breaking down stones in the kidneys and the urinary tract, in some cases the use of modern endoscopic laser methods is required. Vita is the first Hospital to have the latest generation laser for breaking down stones – the Sphinx Jr. made by the German company “LISA Laser”.
