Kidney Stone Center

Kidney stones affect one in 11 Americans and can develop anywhere in the urinary tract. It can be a painful, debilitating and, in some cases, life-threatening condition.

Don’t wait for another excruciating attack.

Call our Kidney Stone Center today at 855.49STONE (855.497.8663)

The Kidney Stone Center’s innovative approach involves a multidisciplinary group of urologists, nephrologists, dietitians and interventional radiologists working together to address your kidney stones and help you feel better quickly.

Over the last 20 years, American diet and lifestyle changes have led to an increase in the number of people suffering with kidney stones. In the last decade alone, we’ve seen an 85-percent jump in the number of emergency room visits due to kidney stone pain.

The lifetime risk of kidney stones in the United States is approximately 19 percent for men and 9 percent for women. Anyone who has had at least one kidney stone episode has at least a 50-percent chance of having another, which can lead to pain, suffering and the inability to work.
