Endourology, Kidney Stone and Lithotriptor Program
Our Endourology, Kidney Stone and Lithotriptor Program focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of urinary stones that occur in the kidney, ureter or bladder. We will help you by not only addressing the stones that you may have inside you right now, but also by creating a personalized program to prevent stone formation in the future. There are many metabolic causes of stones, in various combinations, and we will determine your specific metabolic problem and work with you to address it with diet or medications. To address your current stones, we offer the full range of minimally-invasive procedures for stones:
- laparoscopic or percutaneous removal of large stones.
- ureteroscopic laser lithotripsy for almost any stone.
- totally non-invasive extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy for smaller stones.
Patients with frequent stone recurrence, multiple medical problems, and complicated urologic problems such as neurogenic bladder, chronic infection or obstruction are particularly good candidates for this program.
