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.

Fantastic!, if I could think of a better word for the treatment/service I got from this hospital and the doctors I would use it. I had a very professional young lady meet me at the airport and not only escort me and my partner to the accommodation to make sure everything was ok but also she was with me every step of the way through the surgery and if I had any questions she would ask the doctors or staff and translate for me. I had lens replacement surgery and to be honest I couldn't believe how easy it was, no pain even after the surgery and my eyes are improving every day. Top marks to everyone at EuroTreatMed and thank you.
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 was originally quite apprehensive about travelling to Katowice, Poland for varicose vein surgery but having Maja from EuroTreatMed help me along the way made my experience run smoothly. When I originally contacted Euro Treat Med 2 months prior to my surgery I received plenty of information regarding my procedure and was happy to book with the surgeon. I booked to stay in a hotel called Park Diament only across the road from the hospital where my procedure would take place (patients were given a discount on their stay as well). I flew out two days prior to my procedure and was picked up from the airport by Maja, even though I was 5 hours late due to missing my connecting flight. The following day I had an examination with the surgeon where we discussed appropriate methods for the procedure and was then scheduled in to have treatment in the morning. The day of the procedure went smoothly as Maja was there to check me in and stayed until all of my pre op checks had been completed. After the procedure I was then allowed to leave the hospital at around 3pm the same day and was told to rest in my hotel. I would definitely not hesitate to go abroad for surgery again as the facilities were just as good if not better than the UK and I could not recommend Euro Treat Med and Maja enough.
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.
I could not ask for better care and more attention. I came to Katowice for a PAE treatment, barely available where I live. Everything was ready for my arrival, airport transfers, doctor's appointments schedule, procedure. They helped me in sorting out the best accommodation, post-op check-ups, showed me around the city. My appreciation for the surgeon & the medical staff. Also, thank you so much ETM Team for your extraordinary care. I could honestly recommend EuroTreatMed for anyone looking surgery abroad - they have helped me with everything, the hospital met the best standards and the price was a cherry on top. Whole experience made a lot easier.
