STORZ MEDICAL lithotripters

Urology Overview

Three decades after the first successful disintegration of kidney stones with shock waves on 8 February 1980 – performed with the support of specialists who are now part of the STORZ MEDICAL team – urological stone therapy is no longer an isolated discipline in medicine. Modern STORZ MEDICAL lithotripters, among which the MODULITH® SLX-F2, are designed for a wide spectrum of minimally invasive and extracorporeal procedures to provide significant additional benefits.

The shock wave is and will always be the heart of any lithotripter. With its patented electromagnetic cylindrical source – still second to none in shock wave technology – STORZ MEDICAL has become one of the leading manufacturers of lithotripters worldwide.

Shock waves are not only used for stone disintegration, but have also proved highly effective in the treatment of Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrom (CPPS), Peyronie's disease (IPP) and Erectile Dysfunction (ED).
