Urological Surgery
  

    The efficacy of the Ho:YAG laser as a lithotrite is well documented in current literature. The laser has the unique ability to vaporize, or reduce to a fine grit, virtually any stone, regardless of its composition or color. This allows the surgeon to expect a stone free patient in every case, providing the stone can be visualized.

     Ho:YAG lithotripsy generates the
smallest stone fragments of any lithotripsy device currently available to the practicing urologist. The combination of small fragment size and outstanding probe flexibility typically allows access and visibility to be maintained at all times.
