Gallstones - non-surgical treatment

My wife has small gallstones.  Where on the Internet can
we find the location of sources of non-laproscopic treatment?
lithotripsy, which I don't believe is available now in
the U.S.  Believe this is only available in Canada or Germany as the
FDA wouldn't approve it?  Believe there is also another procedure where
a catheter is inserted to flush out the gall stones.
We live on the West Coast, so any West Coast centers that offer these
treatments would be preferred.

Thanks and regards
