Dr. Roger Sur highlights the advanced treatment capabilities of the Kidney Stone Center and the importance of prevention.
The Comprehensive Kidney Stone Center sees hundreds of individuals with kidney stones each year. The team utilizes expert minimally invasive capabilities – such as advanced imaging technology, robotic surgical procedures, dietary changes and medications.
In addition to the robotically assisted surgical capability, we have the most advanced shock wave lithotripsy equipment onsite. This equipment minimizes radiation exposure by utilizing state of art 3D ultrasound technology
Our goals are not only to treat kidney stones but also prevent their recurrence. The center strives to make your first kidney stone surgery, your last. Our team determines the cause of the stone in 97 percent of cases, enabling unprecedented efforts in prevention of future stones. As most kidney stones are diet related, our registered dietician works with you to develop dietary changes that reduce future kidney stone formation.
As leaders in kidney stone research, you have access to participate in clinical trials that examine newly developed therapies and procedures. Read more about research and clinical trials related to kidney stones.
