Did you know?
Kidney stones can cause urine and kidney infections, acute or vague back and flank pain, nausea and vomiting, and blood in the urine. Untreated, kidney stones can lead to kidney failure. Patients with diabetes and kidney problems are at particular risk.
With proper urological care, the chances of repeat kidney stone formation can be decreased significantly. Diet and fluid intake are important contributors to kidney stone formation.
We offer comprehensive care for patients with kidney stones. Patients who have formed a kidney stone are at increased risk of future stone formation.
We provide expert care for patients with first-episode as well as repeat kidney stones. We successfully treat complex kidney stone disease with proven medical, surgical, behavioral, and dietary therapies. We also specialize in managing kidney stones during pregnancy.
We perform a comprehensive history, physical exam, and a comprehensive metabolic evaluation to determine the causality of kidney stone formation.
We work with each patient individually to minimize the risk of kidney stone recurrence. We believe that prevention is the key to the long-term management of kidney stone disease.
We are able to determine the risk factors contributing to kidney stone formation in the majority of patients and successfully address the problems together with the patient.
