UR Medicine Comprehensive Kidney Stone Treatment Center
Our multidisciplinary Kidney Stone Clinic provides a one-stop shop for patients with kidney stone disease. Our goal is to provide world class care for patients with this recurring and often troublesome condition.
We help patients manage their kidney stones from start to finish, from surgical procedures to future prevention. As a leading academic medical center, we provide our patients with the latest treatment options, including medical and dietary management. We are involved in several research projects, including worldwide, multi-center clinical trials for newer medications. Our surgical center houses state-of-the-art equipment capable of treating kidney stones of all sizes. We offer non-invasive Extracorporeal Shockwave Lithotripsy (ESWL), Ureteroscopy with laser lithotripsy and Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL) for larger kidney stones.
We collaborate with the Center for Community Health & Prevention (CCHP) to help kidney stone patients with dietary modification. The CCHP multi-disciplinary clinical team of registered dietitians, a nurse practitioner, a physician, exercise specialists and lifestyle counselors works with individuals one-on-one to create personalized nutrition plans to aid in stone prevention.
Consultation for patients with kidney stones can now be made 24 hours per day with a simple phone call: 1-877-51-STONE (78663). Our expert medical staff, including board-certified physicians, nurses and lithotripsy technologists are available to answer your questions and can make recommendations for treatment or referrals.
