Kidney Stone Treatment

Kidney stones are made of salts and minerals in the urine that stick together to form small "pebbles." They can be as small as grains of sand or as large as golf balls. They may stay in your kidneys or travel out of your body through the urinary tract.

The urology specialists at St. Luke’s provide surgical and non-surgical options to treat stone disease. And because you’re more likely to experience kidney stones if you’ve already had one, we’ll help you achieve long-term relief through education on why stones form and what you can do to prevent them from coming back.
