Northern Nevada urologists perform the Lithotripsy procedure at Surgery Center of Reno. Lithotripsy involves the use of shock waves to break up stones in the kidney, bladder, or ureter. The tube that transfers urine from the kidneys to the bladder is called the ureter. Following this procedure, very small pieces of stones move out of your body through urine.
