Lithotripsy

The London Lithotripter Centre is a collaborative venture between HCA and Impact Medical Limited – a preferred provider of mobile shock-wave lithotripsy (ESWL) and therapy (ESWT) to many of the leading urological, orthopaedic and sports medicine teams in the UK.

The lithotripter is a device that passes shockwaves through a water-filled cushion, which rests against the patients skin, precisely directed at the point of interest. The Urological Lithotripter - Piezolith 3000, has dual (X-Ray and ultrasound) imaging to identify the stone and with choice of focal size, provides a non-invasive, safe and effective approach to ESWL.

For soft-tissue conditions (orthopaedics ED and wound healing etc), our specialized instrument, the Piezowave2 can precisely target the area of interest and subsequently (over a period of up treatments) induce improved blood supply which in turn should result in improved healing processes. 

When you are treated at the London Lithotripter Centre, you can expect:

  • The highest standards of care in a comfortable and convenient environment
  • Access to world-class specialists – The London Lithotripter Centre is one of only a few clinics around the world that can offer such comprehensive expertise in shockwave therapy
  • The London Lithotripter Centre's clinical team is among the most experienced in Europe and has played a leading role in the introduction of soft-tissue treatments for resistant tendinopathies in orthopaedics and sports medicine.
