Kidney Stones

Minimizing Pain and Improving Quality of Life

About

Kidney stones form when high levels of certain minerals accumulate in the urine. The solid, pebble-like stone can pass out of the body during urination, but sometimes it gets lodged in the ureter and causes sharp pain in the back, side, lower abdomen, and groin. If you experience any of these symptoms, now is the time to consider a visit to Urology Clinic of Winchester| Valley Health.

Treatment

We use advanced urologic care to treat kidney stones, including medical and surgical treatment options tailored to each patient’s unique needs. If a stone does not pass on its own or with medication, we often treat patients using general anesthesia and minimally invasive procedures that break up or extract the kidney stone through the use of lasers and/or small telescopes. Our treatment options are intended to minimize pain, shorten recovery time and improve quality of life for our patients.
