About this book

This book is a comprehensive guide to extracorporeal stone wave lithotripsy (ESWL) that includes a step-by-step approach for treating every possible kidney stone position. The book has an easy to read structure that will help readers understand ESWL quickly.

Written by leading experts who have used ESWL to treat over 23000 patients, this book brings together years of practical knowledge and expertise in one concise volume.
