Overview

Kidney stones can increase your risk of chronic kidney disease, which is why fast detection and treatment is important when painful symptoms occur. Duke urologists and nephrologists use advanced technology to determine your type of kidney stone, its cause, and any conditions that require treatment to prevent a recurrence. Small kidney stones can typically be treated with lifestyle changes or medication.

Our urologic surgeons are also experts in using minimally invasive treatments to remove complicated stones, such as large, recurrent stones, and to manage your care when other kidney diseases are present. Duke is among a small number of hospitals in the country that specialize in removing large and complex stones. Regardless of your diagnosis, our goal is to quickly return you to a pain-free life and minimize your risk for kidney-related problems in the future.
