Ask Dr. Palese: ESWL and URS

Ask Dr. Palese: ESWL and URS
December 15th, 2022

Have you ever wondered what goes on during an ESWL or URS procedure? Dr. Michael Palese, Chairman of Urology for Mount Sinai Downtown and Mount Sinai Beth Israel in New York, gives us a breakdown of these two procedures, and how they differ.

“ESWL is a non-invasive procedure that doesn’t require any incision. It only takes 20 minutes to complete and works approximately 75% of the time. But if you undergo ESWL to remove your large stones, this can lead to very painful situations that require more surgeries.”
