You probably can't.
You're going to have to break up the concrete around those pipes, and replace the pipe with the concrete in it.
Good luck!

If the pipes are plastic there is a slight chance you'd be able to snake it and knock some loose,then fllod the drain and see what comes out the other end if possible.Again,a longshot but worth a try

I know it is probably to late since this happened a month ago, but here is a little trick, if the pipes are plastic, dump 2- 2litres bottles of Coke a cola down the drain over a 8 hour period, then flush it out, it works most of the time when the amount is not to bad.
