An Important Day in Medical History
February 7, 2018
On February 7, 1980, doctors performed the first ESWL lithotripsy treatment on a patient with kidney stones. Many procedures later, the treatment proved so successful, that it revolutionized modern kidney stone management. Based on extensive research pioneered by Dornier MedTech, lithotripsy is now used on 500,000+ kidney stone patients each year.
Based on decades of experience, the treatment is popular due to its non-invasiveness and reliability, and that it reduces the recovery time compared to surgical options. If you have kidney stones, or know someone who does, learn more by clicking here to visit our Patient Center!
