Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PNL)

These procedures are treatments for kidney stones that are used in patients with large or irregularly shaped kidney stones, people with infections, stones that have not been broken up enough by SWL (extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy ) or those who are not candidates for another common stone treatment, ureteroscopy. Stones that are bigger than 2 cm (the size of a marble) require this procedure.
