Kidney Stones

About Kidney Stones

We offer the latest in minimally-invasive outpatient management of stone diseases including using "shock waves" with superior equipment, holmium lasers, state-of-the-art small telescopes, and video imaging systems. This translates to faster recovery, outpatient procedures (no overnight hospital stay), and you are often able to resume your normal activities the following day!

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

About BPH Male Bladder Control Problems

We offer in-office treatments to manage your urinary difficulties. You walk in and out of the office the same day to have this treatment. No needles or catheters required for the majority of patients!

Laser prostate procedure (Holmium laser) achieves similar results as the traditional TURP ("roto rooter" or "reaming out"), but is usually performed as an outpatient procedure in the hospital. Dr. Hettiarachchi is a preceptor for this procedure.

Even the traditional "roto rooter" (TURP) is enhanced and made safer using the latest and safest technology currently available (saline solution bipolar resection).
