Ureteroscopy is a telescopic procedure to inspect the ureter and kidney. The ureteroscope is passed through the urethra (waterpipe) into the bladder and then to the ureter. The most common reason for undergoing a ureteroscopy is the treatment of ureteric and kidney stones. A laser fibre is inserted through the ureteroscope and enables stones to be fragmented and removed.

Ureteroscopy may also be performed if there is concern about a cancer in the ureter or inner lining of the kidney. 

Ureteroscopy is usually a daycase procedure. A temporary stent may be left in the ureter after the procedure to prevent blockage of the kidney.
