Progress in RIRS
In our endeavor to maintain our hospital as the best kidney stone hospital for removal of kidney stones, a new technology was introduced for the first time in India in our hospital in the year 1998 known as Flexible Ureteroscopy (Now popularly Known as RIRS). Since then R P Stone Clinic became a Pioneer Hospital in India for Removal of Kidney Stones by RIRS (Retrograde Intra Renal Surgery). Since then several national and international workshops on RIRS were conducted at R P Stone Clinic, Panipat. First such workshop was conducted under the aegis of North Zone Chapter of Urological Society of India in 1998. Several Training Programs were also conducted here for the treatment of kidney stones by RIRS.
Training in RIRS
After First workshop on Flexible Ureteroscopy for the removal of kidney stones (RIRS) in 1998 at R P Stone Clinic, Panipat, Dr Pawan Gupta started working on several Flexible Fiberoptic Ureteroscopes for the treatment of Kidney Stones by RIRS. In the initial stages only small kidney stones were removed with tipless baskets. At that time, Flexible Ureteroscopes, Holmium Laser, Tipless Baskets and Access Sheaths were in primitive phase. Dr Pawan Gupta worked along with many Endoscopic Industries to develop this technology. In the year 2011, Urological Society of India organized a workshop at R P Stone Clinic, Panipat on RIRS which was attended by around 200 Urologists from India as well as abroad. Several Cook Training Programs on RIRS have been conducted at our Hospital Since then. Several Urologists from India as well as abroad have visited this hospital to watch Dr Pawan Gupta performing this procedure.
