Kidney Stone Prevention and Management

Our experience has mirrored the results of many studies that demonstrate an increased incidence of kidney stones in the pediatric and the adult populations. Genetic and dietary factors play a major role in most patients. We see patients with complex medical problems that also increase the risk of stones. As nephrologists, our role is to prevent stones from developing in patients who are at risk. To accomplish that goal, comprehensive evaluation and dietary management is provided, tailored to the individual. When stone-removal procedures are required, we partner with the Division of Urology to provide our patients with state-of-the-art care, such as lithotripsy. Our pediatric radiologists are available to perform and review imaging of the urinary tract. We are in the process of developing a Comprehensive Kidney Stone Center on the New Brunswick campus.
