What is nephroscopy?

Nephroscopy is a non-surgical way of examining the inside of the kidneys and treating certain conditions in the upper urinary tract. Nephroscopy is done with the use of a small instrument called a nephroscope. The thin, flexible tube part of the nephroscope is inserted into the skin through a very small cut.
