World-Class Surgeons at SGH Dammam Relieve Patient from Years of Kidney Stone Pain

 Expert surgeons at Saudi German Hospital (SGH) Dammam have successfully performed a delicate surgery to relieve a patient from years of chronic pain caused by a large kidney stone. The stone, located in a challenging position within the patient’s right kidney, was skillfully removed by the hospital’s top surgeons.

The surgical team first conducted a ureteropyelography, a detailed imaging study of the ureter and kidney using a radiopaque substance, to accurately visualize the blockage. This precision imaging was crucial for planning the minimally invasive procedure.

Through an incision less than 1 cm, the surgeons performed a miniaturized nephoscopy to access the kidney stone. Using laser technology, they meticulously broke down the 2 cm stone. To ensure proper drainage, a ureteral stent was placed post-procedure.

The patient’s swift recovery and discharge within 24 hours underscore the surgeons’ exceptional skill and efficiency. This success story is particularly notable given the failure of previous attempts to remove the stone at another hospital.

The patient’s experience at SGH Dammam reflects the hospital's ‘Caring Like Family’ ethos, where the Kingdom’s finest medical professionals provide compassionate care supported by state-of-the-art facilities and advanced technologies.
