Kidney stone crusher

While the complexity of medical devices was increasing, they were not necessarily becoming more expensive. When the Inselspital purchased the first Dornier kidney stone crusher in 1985, it cost a whole 5 million Swiss francs – converted to today's purchasing power – around 8 million. In addition, a separate building had to be erected. Since 2015, a successor device, the "Boston Lithoclast Master", has been in operation in the urology department. It is not only much smaller, but also easier to handle.
