Oklahoma Lithotripter Associates, LC (OLA) was founded in 1985 to bring kidney stone treatment technology to the state of Oklahoma. In 1986, OLA performed its first Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL) at the Oklahoma Lithotripsy Center, on the Deaconess Hospital campus. In 1997, OLA moved to a new location at Deaconess Hospital and started the Oklahoma Surgery and Urology Center, a multi-specialty ambulatory surgery center (ASC). Finally in 2009, OLA established the Oklahoma Kidney Stone Center that is designed for general urological treatments and specializes in kidney stone treatments.
