Renal calculi or Kidney stones are formed when the urine is supersaturated with salt and minerals such as calcium oxalate, struvite (ammonium magnesium phosphate), uric acid and cystine.60-80% of stones contain calcium. They may vary in size from small 'gravel-like' stones to large staghorn calculi.
Several factors increase the chances of stone formation-
Other symptoms which may be present include
A few blood tests and urine analysis may be needed. Usually an Ultrasound clinches the diagnosis. While in some cases where ultrasound is not able to show the details about the calculus, Non-contrast CT KUB will be helpful which is now considered as the gold standard investigation.
Initial management may be pain relief. Definitive management will include stone removal, dissolution, ESWL and medical expulsive therapy. Among these options the urologist will help you to choose the best one.

Visited for : Azoospermia Treatment
After initial semen analysis test at famous maternity hospital, we found condition of Azoospermia(with zero sperm in semen), so doctor referred us to Dr.Praveen joshi for further consultant. Dr Joshi explained us everything in detail, and reasons why sperm count can be zero. He suggested some Hormone tests and scanning to decide if sperm production is normal in the body. After this Dr.Joshi himself have operated PESA at Cloudnine and successfully extracted sperms required for IVF. Trust worthy doctor, I would recommend everyone to go for this doctor.
Doctor addressed my issue correctly and answered all my queries. He was patient and polite and after listening my issues advised medicines and tests according.
