Kidney stone is a medical condition that is unfortunately very common among Americans.
It is estimated that 11% of American men and 7% of women will have to deal with a kidney stone at some point in their lives. Often, they are ‘silent’ and do not cause problems. However, stones of any size can cause severe symptoms such as pain and nausea when they block the kidney. Large stones can cause a variety of problems including chronic infections, blood in the urine and even long term damage to the kidney. We have vast experience in identifying, treating and preventing stones from reforming.
Fortunately, most stones can be treated with any number of non or minimally invasive alternatives. At AAUrology, we have surgeons with special training in kidney stone treatment who can provide optimal care to get you ‘stone free’ and a follow-up care program designed to keep you that way.
