Extra-corporeal shock wave Lithotripsy commonly called ESWL or Lithotripsy is a safe, effective, non - invasive and easy procedure for kidney stones. High energy shock waves are used to pulverize the kidney stone into sand like particles, which the body eliminates through the urinary tract. Since the shock wave is generated outside the body, the procedure is termed Extra-Corporeal shock wave Lithotripsy (ESWL). The name is delivered from the roots of 2 Greek words- "Litho" meaning stone, "Trip" meaning to break.
