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 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.
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 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
Great overall experience. I am absolutely grateful for the treatment received. I can recommend orthopaedic surgery here to everyone. Excellent job of our doctors. Also, our assistant - Maya made everything much easier, such a caring and well-organized person. We are already planning to come back for the prostate embolization for Rick, maybe there will be some time to visit the Silver Mine. See you soon and again, thank you. Take care.
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.
