Sam Applegate

Sam is a radiographer specialising in ESWL (lithotripsy). Lithotripsy is the breaking of kidney stones using pressure or shock waves. These waves are focused on to the kidney stone with the use of ultrasound and X-rays. The pressure waves reduce the kidney stone to a fine gravel which may be passed naturally in urine over a period of time, usually with no pain.

Sam has extensive experience in the treatment of kidney stones using lithotripsy and works closely with Mr Anson to deliver outstanding care for patients suffering from kidney stones. He is the lithotripsy lead at HCA Healthcare UK and is based at London Bridge Hospital.
