Kidney stones are a common and painful medical problem. Kidney stones are formed when salts in the urine precipitate and form solid material by deposits of mineral salts bound together by a protein matrix. Common components are Calcium, Oxalate, Magnesium, Ammonium, Phosphate and Uric acid.

Stone disease management involves treatment of the existing stone and preventive measures against recurrences. Many small stones pass by themselves through the urinary tract with the urine however pain can be severe and require hospital admission and pain killer medicines. Many stones require open operation or endoscopic keyhole surgery.
Now a new invention, Extracorporeal Shock-wave Lithotripsy (ESWL) is available for effective treatment of kidney stones with little pain or discomfort using an intense beam of ultrasound to smash large kidney stones into small fragments and powder that can pass out in urine.
