Overview

The Nephrology Department at Dallah Hospital is where early diagnosis of kidney diseases is reported, especially those that adversely affect kidney function in both early and advanced cases.
Fragment Kidney Stones & Urinary Tract Unit
Among the services offered by this specialty:

  • Taking the diagnostic biopsies of the kidneys
  • Dialysis in severe cases, through the blood and by washing Albertheoni (abdominal)
  • Following up on cases of kidney failure with appropriate intervention when necessary
Fragment Kidney Stones & Urinary Tract Unit

The Fragment Kidney Stones & Urinary Tract Unit is equipped with state-of-the-art medical technology that breaks up kidney stones found in the ureters and bladder by using electromagnetic waves. This is more accurately possible with the identification of gallstones by means of a ray and three-dimensional ultrasound.

It also provides all necessary information for great quality when using the digital imaging machine. The device works without the water bath and the process of fragmentation is painless, where patients are treated on an operation per day basis; this means that most patients who undergo fragmentation leave the same evening.

The Fragmentation Center for Urinary Tract Stones at Dallah Hospital has a success rate of 100% when dealing with various cases of urinary tract stones. The Center is characterized by its ability to address tricky stones and difficult situations. Cases in the lower part of the ureters are usually treated with Laparoscopic surgery, but since this device came into use there has been a lower rate of complications compared to the high rate involved in the conventional surgery or Laparoscopic surgery

Fragmentation Shock Waves

This fragmentation device operates on the principle of converting electrical energy into shock waves, which provides the highest possible degree of safety to all patients.

Benefits of Shock Waves:

  • No pain with fragmentation
  • Does not affect the heart, as is the case with electromagnetic devices
  • May be used on children who can undergo general anesthesia
  • Kidney tissue is not affected even during colorful treatment sessions
  • Size of fragments do not exceed 1-2 mm
  • Ability to fragment stones starting from the size of 1 cm

A technical group under the supervision of highly experienced consultants from Dallah Hospital works on the devices
