The Litho Bus Rolls into Rotorua

9th July 2018

Mobile Medical Technology’s Lithotripsy bus has been on the road since 1995, has treated over 12,000 patients, and is now bringing its service to Rotorua.

The ‘litho bus’ currently visits ten different locations from Whangarei to Dunedin, on a four week cycle. As of March, the lithotripsy bus started treating patients at the new site in Rotorua. The 20 tonne bus parks up at the Southern Cross car park, where patients are admitted and monitored prior to and after their procedure.

This new site gives patients in the Bay of Plenty area a chance to receive ESWL (Extra Corporeal Shockwave Lithotripsy) to treat their kidney stones. It also allows patients to be treated by their own urologist, close to home.

Mobile Health Chief Executive Mark Eager sees the direct benefits of sharing mobile with Rotorua; “Bringing the lithotripsy bus to Rotorua is a fantastic solution for Bay of Plenty patients. Because the ESWL treatment is a non-invasive procedure, and because they can be treated locally, receiving kidney stone treatment becomes a much less stressful experience for the patient. “
