Geordie
This little guy, Geordie, has the unfortunate history of forming stones in his bladder.

A year ago, he had a minimally invasive procedure to remove his stones and lithotripsy (a medical procedure that uses shock waves to break up stones in the kidney, bladder, or ureter) to remove stones that were lodged in his urethra. Ouch.

Now Geordie is checked every one to three months with a simple X-ray to see if any new stones have formed and if so, to catch them while they are small. The good news is that we can deal with these small stones with a simple procedure (voiding urethrohydropulsion) to flush them out of the bladder.

This avoids any surgery and takes only ten minutes! (Of course Geordie is delighted as there is no need for surgery)
