A kidney stone is a solid mass of tiny crystals that are formed when urine contains too much of certain substances. The biggest risk factor for kidney stones is not consuming enough fluids, especially water.
Symptoms of Kidney Stones
– Severe pain that starts and stops suddenly in the stomach area or side of the back, and may move to the groin area
– Abnormal urine color
– Blood in the urine
– Nausea and vomiting
Treatment of Kidney Stones
Treatment of kidney stone depends on the type of stone found and the severity of your symptoms. The Stone Center offers various treatment options for variety of conditions. Most treatments are minimally invasive or non-invasive. Our physicians are expert in all treatment options, using state-of-the-art facilities to help you get better faster.
Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL)
ESWL is the latest non-invasive, non-surgical treatment of kidney stones, which use a high-density, focused acoustic pulse. Stones are broken up, fragmented, and pulverized by focused shock waves that enable the patient to excrete the fragments spontaneously with the urine.
Urodynamic Studies (UDS)
Urodynamics studies (UDS) assess how well the bladder, sphincters, and urethra hold and release urine. This series of detailed measurements can show how well the bladder works and why there could be leaks or blockages.
