Our facilities include:
Medical and surgical disciplines
The location of kidney stones and the execution of other complicated non-invasive surgery is made possible through advanced computer technology.
The introduction of such technology takes the trauma out of what was previously a more complicated surgical procedure. Patients are more receptive to corrective treatment with a procedure that is not only non-invasive but also cost-effective due to the low operating cost of the unit.
