Your physician will do a thorough physical exam before recommending whether your symptoms need more testing.
Physicians often diagnose kidney or bladder stones with urine or blood tests. X-rays and advanced imaging can give your physician important information on a stone’s location or size. This information can help determine the right treatment for you.
At AHN, different types of urology clinicians may work together on your care. This approach helps us offer you the treatment plan that’s most effective for your circumstances.
Less severe stones may require only pain medication to manage symptoms until your body passes the stone naturally. For more complex cases, surgery may be necessary to dislodge or remove a stone. Many of our urology physicians are skilled in using sophisticated robotics technology and tiny incisions to remove large or otherwise difficult-to-pass stones. This type of less invasive surgery means fewer risks and a shorter recovery for you.
