“Surgical and Medical Expertise in Kidney Stone Disease”
Most people don’t think much about kidney stones, until they present with an unexpected, acute and debilitating pain crisis. Kidney stone incidence has been increasing and now affects about 1 in 11 Americans.
First, we can help treat your acute crisis with pain relief and medical expulsive therapies to assist you in passing your stone.
When surgical techniques are required, we are equipped to surgically treat your stone using one of the following procedures:
- Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL)
- Ureteroscopy with Laser Lithotripsy and Stone Removal
- Percutaneous Stone Removal
Once relieved, we can then evaluate your risk factors to prevent debilitating and painful recurrences, which can interrupt work and social commitments, increase your utilization of health care and hospitalization, and even lead to longterm kidney damage.
