Prevention an Important Part of Treatment

Successful treatment of recurrent  kidney stones  often involves more than eliminating the stone – in many cases it also requires a careful evaluation to identify metabolic abnormalities that predispose patients to stone formation.

The evaluation may include a comprehensive medical history, imaging tests, stone analysis, urine studies, blood tests and genetic testing. Patients receive dietary counseling and many may be prescribed medications to limit or eradicate further stone activity.
