Kidney

Procedures related to the Kidney performed by Dr Morgan Pokorny include:

Flexible pyeloscopy

Flexible pyeloscopy involves passing a very thin and flexible telescope into the kidney from the urethra and ureter, to inspect the inside of the kidney. Kidney stones and small tumours can be treated with laser through this technique.

Percutaneous nephrolithotomy  (PCNL)

PCNL is a procedure to treat large or numerous kidney stones. The technique involves making a keyhole tunnel into the kidney from the back (+/-2cm wide) through which an operating telescope called a nephroscope is passed. This allows a camera, water and tools to be used inside the kidney to break down and remove stones.
