Urolithiasis – A Pseudo Chronic Surgical Disease


Urolithiasis is a very common disease. Stones in any part of the urinary tract can produce symptoms and complications, but because the lower part of the ureter is the narrowest part of the urinary tract, stones get lodged easily producing pain and haematuria commonly. If we keep in mind the limitation and complication of the surgical procedure, and ureteric stone is psudo surgical disease, homoeopathy can provide a real solution for such conditions.
