Percutaneous Nephrostolithotomy (PCNL)

Nephrostolithotomy is a that uses a needle passed through the skin into the kidney to either remove the stone or break up the stone (lithotripsy). First, the doctor makes a small incision in the patient’s back and creates a tract through the kidney to the stone.

Through the tract the doctor inserts a fiberoptic telescope called a nephroscope to either remove the stone or break it up into tiny pieces using a laser, ultrasound probe, or pneumatic device.
