What is rirs surgery(retro intrarenal surgery )?

Retrograde intrarenal surgery, commonly known as RIRS, is a retrograde ureteroscopic technique for extracting kidney stones. In this procedure, surgeons make the urethra the pathway to reach the kidneys. It is a minimally invasive technique that involves no cuts or holes. The surgeons use an optic endoscope to reach the kidneys and locate the stones and then use a laser to reduce the stones to dust.

Retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) with laser lithotripsy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to treat kidney stones. It is performed by a urologist and involves the use of a small scope and laser energy to break up the kidney stones into smaller fragments, which can then be passed out of the body through the urinary tract.


The patient is given a general anesthesia or a regional anesthesia to make them comfortable during the procedure.


A flexible ureteroscope is inserted through the urethra and guided up to the affected kidney.


The ureteroscope has a camera attached that allows the surgeon to see the kidney stones or other problems in the urinary tract.

Laser lithotripsy

The surgeon uses a laser to break up the kidney stones into smaller fragments that can be passed out of the body through the urinary tract. The laser energy is delivered through a small fiber optic cable that is inserted through the ureteroscope.

Removal or treatment

The surgeon may use small instruments to remove any remaining kidney stone fragments or perform other necessary treatments.


Once the procedure is complete, the ureteroscope is removed and the patient is monitored in the recovery room.
