Here are some...: Percutaneous nephrolithotomy is done through small opening(s) in the back to access, break, wash-out, and extract stone/fragments with various high-tech stone-breaking machines such as ultrasound, EHL, holmium laser, etc. Most patients tolerate it very well after adjusting to realistic expectation and judiciously using pain medications. For detail, ask Doc timely.
