Kidney Stones

When kidney stones form, they block the passage in the urinary tract and can be extremely painful. We invest in the most advanced, immediate care.

Conditions We Treat

Kidney stones, sometimes called ureteral stones, affect one in 10 people at some point in their lives, according to the National Kidney Foundation. They are created when minerals and salts in urine – including calcium, oxalate, phosphate and sometimes uric acid – crystallize and bind together.

Sometimes, a patient won’t know a kidney stone exists until it passes into the ureter, blocking passage and causing urine to back up into the kidney. This can be acutely painful.
