Date:8/28/2007

GILBERT, Ariz., Aug. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Gilbert Hospital is the first hospital in the East Valley to utilize the latest technology in extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy in the fight against painful kidney stones. This state-of-the-art weapon uses high energy shock waves in a non-invasive procedure to break down kidney stones and other renal-related issues.

The Multifunctional Lithotripsy System has been added to Gilbert Hospital's arsenal of surgical services and is one of only three to exist in the Valley. "This piece of equipment allows our surgical staff to utilize a highly advanced, digital system and spares the patient prolonged discomfort while reducing patient treatment times," stated Gilbert Hospital CEO, David S. Wanger. "Lithotripsy capability is not new, but Gilbert Hospital is proud to offer the newest cutting-edge technology available for our patients," said Gilbert Hospital's Director of Surgical Services, Deb Schmoldt.

At Gilbert hospital, lithotripsy is typically performed on an outpatient basis and the procedure usually takes less than an hour. After the procedure, the patient is briefly sent to the recovery room and then goes home.

To learn more about Gilbert Hospital's lithotripsy services, please call (480) 984-2000.
