Simultaneous Bilateral Endoscopic Surgery (SBES) for Renal Stones

Dr. Giusti describes a simultaneous bilateral surgery involving two surgeons operating in tandem to complete a case within a single procedure. Dr. Giusti performed a percutaneous operation on multiple >1 cm left kidney stones, and at the same time, Dr. Proietti performed flexible ureteroscopy to address the patient’s 1.5 cm right renal calculi. Dr. Giusti details his step-by-step technique and the devices used to successfully complete the procedure.
