ESWL requires:

  • Few to no follow-up procedures
  • 1-day hospital or ambulatory
  • Effective for children & infants
  • Less pain than other procedures
  • Less UTIs
  • Local or no anesthetics required
  • Lower ER admission rate
  • Shorter treatment time
  • Lower to zero exposure to x-rays (since ultrasound is an option)
