**Lithotripsy – Artesia General Hospital is proud to boast of its state of the art lithotripter equipment to treat kidney stones in a non-invasive manner. Lithotripsy is a medical procedure that uses shock waves to break up stones in the kidney, bladder or ureter. After the procedure, the tiny pieces of stones pass out of your body in your urine. Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) is the most common type of lithotripsy. Extracorporeal means outside the body.
