Dear Sir, My question is that I have a stone in my kidney. The stone is seen through CT scan but it is not seen in ultrasound. Doctor suggested lithotripsy. I want to ask can lithotripsy shock damage my kidney or is it safe for kidney stone, or any other way to break kidney stone naturally. Kindly guide me. I am fearing for lithotripsy operation due to its side effect.

I am a nephrologist and do not perform lithotripsy.  This is a problem to be discussed with a urologist.  You should discuss the risks and the benefits of the lithotripsy with your urologist.
