The advent of flexible ureteroscopes is one of the most significant advances that have revolutionized the treatment of intrarenal and proximal kidney stones. The improvement in image quality due to use of high definition cameras and digital imaging has further led to better visualization and more accurate treatment.

Treatment of kidney stones using minimally invasive procedures such as laparoscopic, robotic, percutaneous and ureteroscopic surgeries has gained popularity over fast few years. Various hospitals are significantly investing in employing minimally invasive surgical procedures for kidney-related diseases such as tumours, kidney stones, and removal of poorly functioning kidneys. A large patient population opting for minimally invasive surgeries is likely to boost the market.

Remarkable increase in number of kidney-related diseases and other urological conditions affecting population has generated need to create awareness regarding overall kidney health, and timely screening and diagnosis of disease to receive appropriate treatment.  Various organizations and companies across the world are working towards raising awareness for receiving affordable and equitable access to screening, diagnosis and treatment options.
