Dr. Thomas F. Walsh, specializing in Urology and seeing patients at the
Henry County Hospital Urology Clinic, will now perform Lithotripsy at
Henry County Hospital.
Lithotripsy is the use of high-energy shock waves to fragment and disintegrate
kidney stones. This procedure is used when a kidney stone is too large
to pass on its own, or when a stone becomes stuck in a ureter (a tube
which carries urine from the kidney to the bladder) and will not pass.
Kidney stones are extremely painful and can cause serious medical complications
if not removed.
“I am happy to announce the offering of Lithotripsy at Henry County
Hospital,” stated Kim Bordenkircher, CEO of Henry County Hospital.
“This new procedure allows the staff of Henry County Hospital to
better meet the healthcare needs of the community. Pain management is
important to patients and staff alike, this procedure can assist with
a patient’s pain, allowing them to return to a quality life.”
Dr. Walsh is accepting new patients. Henry County Hospital Urology Clinic
is located at the Henry County Hospital, 1600 Riverview Ave. Dr. Walsh’s
office hours are every Friday 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. He accepts all
major insurance plans including Medicare and Medicaid. For more information
or to schedule an appointment, please call (419) 591-3857.
