Caption: Lithotomy instruments dating from around 1870, England. Lithotomy procedures involve the surgical removal of calculi (painful stones formed from crystallised minerals in the body, and which cannot pass through the body naturally) from the bladder, kidneys, or urinary tract. Lithotomy procedures in various forms were carried out throughout the history of medicine, records of such dating back to the practices of the ancient Greeks.
