We have now published the results of keyhole surgery for removal of kidney stones (percutaneous nephrolithotomy, PCNL) on this website. Details of the number of operations performed by each surgeon and centre in 2014 & 2015 are given, with information about surgeon and unit transfusion rates and length of hospital stay.
Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of all the information contained in this section, BAUS does not accept any liability arising from any errors or omissions, or the use of, or reliance on, the information contained in this website and reserve the right to change the information and descriiptions as and when required.
In looking at these data, it is important to bear in mind that variations in the data between individual surgeons and units may be a reflection of case complexity or patient factors. We strongly recommend, therefore, that individual patients discuss the likely outcomes of their procedure with their urologist before any operation. This will help them understand the expected outcome of this complex procedure, and will take into account factors relevant to their particular case.
