Once you've had a kidney stone, you face recurrence rates of 50 percent over five years. Prevention methods can be an important tool in stone disease management. For this reason, the Comprehensive Kidney Stone Center focuses not only on the treatment, but on the aggressive prevention of initial and recurring stones.
The onsite dietician at the Kidney Stone Center tailors meal plans that reduce stone recurrence.
Under the direction of Dr. Roger Sur, a leader in the field of innovative kidney stone evaluation prevention, we can create a successful prevention plan in almost 90 percent of our patients. Our program is able to detect an impressive 97 percent of underlying medical abnormalities in stone forming patients.
Using this information, we can provide general recommendations as well as effective, highly individualized therapies to prevent stone recurrence.
