Ureteroscopy

To remove a small stone in your ureter or kidney, your doctor may use a ureteroscope, which is fitted with a small camera. The ureteroscope is placed in your urethra, then through the bladder to your ureter. Once the stone is located, special tools can grab the stone or break it up into smaller pieces with use of holmnium lithotripsy.
