UCSF, Boston Scientific donate LithoVue system to GPHC

The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and Boston Scientific recently donated several LithoVue scopes to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC).
The LithoVue system, a state-of-the-art flexible camera, enables urologists to access and treat stones in the ureter and kidneys with remarkable precision. This contribution has already facilitated the treatment of around 28 patients suffering from complex renal stone diseases.
The advanced design of the LithoVue ureteroscopes allows urologists to reach stones in difficult areas of the kidney without making any incisions. When used alongside a holmium laser, these scopes significantly reduce surgery times and hospital stays, enabling many patients to undergo same-day surgeries for large renal stones.
