Kidney Stone Treatment

Kidney stones, or nephrolithiasis, are one of the most common - and painful - urinary tract disorders. While they typically do not cause any permanent damage, they can affect any area of the urinary tract, from your kidneys to your bladder. Most people pass kidney stones on their own; however, sometimes, medical intervention is needed.

  • Frequent and painful urination
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Pain in your back, side, stomach, groin or genitals
  • Sudden, severe pain that comes in waves
