RIRS Surgery Privately – cost, information, a procedure
What is a RIRS surgery abroad? How much does the RIRS surgery costs in the UK and in Poland?
RIRS – An innovative method of urolithiasis treatment. Kidney stones removal, minimally invasive way.
The RIRS surgery – Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery with the usage of the flexible ureteroscope (URSf).
RIRS is a low invasive procedure, using the newest worlds urology (endourology) techniques. Thanks to the use of highly flexible urethroscopes it is possible to reach almost every spot in the kidneys and the pelvicalyceal system. The technique is used to treat the kidney stones and the upper section of the ureter. Also, it is very helpful in the evaluation of the structure of the urinary system, which allows to diagnose and treat urethral cancer in the early stage.
The RIRS surgery procedure abroad does not affect the kidney parenchyma and is completely painless.
During the RIRS procedure done privately in Poland, we use the holm laser, which allows us to shatter even the hardest stones and deposits. The most common is the dusting technique, which shatters the stone into dust, which is painlessly removed with the urine.
The URSf “eye” allows sending the image from the kidney in the multiplied magnification. The image is viewed on the screen, which allows pointing the laser very precisely on even the tiniest stones.

I was 100% satisfied with the services of EuroTreatMed in arranging, organising and overseeing my PAE procedure in Katowice two weeks ago. I had previously had elsewhere in Poland private dental and physiotherapy services, so was confident that although EuroTreatMed was new to me, I would find good quality prostate treatment there. Maja Swinder their Patient Coordinator has very good command of both written and spoken English, and there were no language barriers with her. In my opinion, she has also excellent customer care skills. I was in the clinic for three nights, and have needed about a week back home to fully recover. Overall, including travel costs, the price was substantially below that in the UK. I would use EuroTreatMed again for elective treatment in Poland
I had been waiting 3 months for an MRI in the UK, so I contacted Bartek and Maja who operate with Eurotreatmed. They managed to get everything booked in and sorted for me, within 2 weeks i have flown to katowice had an MRI and got my results for a small fraction of the cost of what it would cost in the UK. Amazing and quick support from start to finish and I can not give enough thanks.
I can highly recommend Eurotreatmed service. Maja has been very helpful with arranging lens replacement service for my grandpa. She always responded quickly and answered our questions and doubts. The surgery was successful without any complications and my grandpa came back happy and now he can see much better. We did not know much about Katowice but it turned out to be an interesting place. He even managed to go for a one day trip to Auschwitz museum. The signs in the hospital were not in English but the staff assisted him and helped to move around. Overall great experience.
Recently travelled over to Katowice with my partner for him to get a MRI. The service received from Maja and Bartek was amazing going out of there way to make sure everything went smoothly even as far as booking us meals and transfers. Thank you so much for your help
I have just returned from Katowice after having Trifocal lens replacement surgery arranged by Bartosz and Maja at EuroTreatMed. I am extremely happy with my surgery and cannot believe the actual result I now have. My vision is perfect. Bartosz and Maja are so wonderful to deal with and they looked after me at every stage of my treatment. Nothing was too much trouble for them and I would certainly recommend them to anyone who is considering this type of surgery.It is a very nervous time for anyone naturally but their care made sure that my anxieties were very short lived. My surgery was painless and very professional and It was also excellent value in comparison to UK providers.
