Congratulations to Dr. Jack Farhi and the team at Ascension Sacred Heart for performing Pensacola’s first mini Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy.
Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy, often abbreviated as PCNL, is a cutting-edge surgical procedure designed to remove kidney stones. It involves the creation of a small incision in the patient’s back, providing direct access to the kidney where the stone or stones are located. Through this incision, specialized medical instruments and scopes are inserted, allowing the surgeon to locate, fragment, and remove the kidney stones with precision.
Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy is a remarkable medical advancement that provides kidney stone patients with a less invasive, more effective, and faster road to recovery. As the medical field continues to advance, procedures like PCNL are at the forefront of improving the quality of life for individuals who suffer from kidney stones, making it an invaluable solution for the future of healthcare.
