Kidney Stones

Kidney stones are hard deposits in concentrated urine that can be extremely painful when they are passed. Kidney stone can also be surgically removed. The treatment for a kidney stone depends on the size of the stone, what it is made of, whether it is causing pain and whether it is blocking your urinary tract or not.  If your ultrasound or CAT scan shows that your kidney stone is small, your doctor may tell you to take medications and drink plenty of fluids to help push the stone through your urinary tract. If your kidney stone is large, or if it is blocking your urinary tract, additional treatment may be necessary.  Our nephrologists will be able to assist you and improve your kidney stones.
