Retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) is a procedure that is performed to treat kidney stones using a narrow fiber-optic tube with a camera and light source called an endoscope. The endoscope is threaded to the kidneys through the natural opening of the urethra (tube that passes urine out of the body). The endoscope helps your doctor to view the stones in the kidney. Other instruments can be inserted through the endoscope to destroy the stones. The stones can be removed with forceps, evaporated with a laser probe, or crushed and removed using an ultra sound probe.
RIRS is performed under general or spinal anesthesia, and may be indicated for the removal of kidney stones. Being a minimally invasive procedure, RIRS is associated with faster recovery and reduced post-surgical pain.
