The stone prevention clinic is for patients who are prone to kidney stones. Patients who have had more than two kidney stones are likely to develop them again during their lifetimes.In order to prevent the formation of new stones, we perform a complete medical, metabolic, nutritional and lifestyle assessment. This evaluation includes not only analysis of actual kidney stones, but also blood and urine tests to determine the exact risk factors for the formation of new stones. The data and evaluation are incorporated into an individual treatment plan. The vast majority of our patients take medication to help prevent stone formation. In addition, depending on stone composition, doctors can make dietary recommendations, such as foods to avoid in the future, and set up nutritional guidelines that fit the patient's lifestyle. For the medical treatment of kidney stones, our nephrologists are specialists in the field of all aspects of kidney disease, kidney stones, and the metabolic evaluation and prevention of stones.
