Venice Urology offers advanced and proven effective methods for preventing and treating kidney stones. Kidney stones are serious and painful problems, and they require immediate attention. They may start as a small aggravation in the kidney area, though they soon develop into a very painful condition. Fortunately, there are ways to prevent this problem. If kidney stones are discovered early, often they are treated easily, without major surgery.
There are a number of ways to remove kidney stones. Let our doctors help you choose the best method for you. These methods include shock wave (ESWL), scope extraction (ureteroscopy) with holmium laser, and mini incision removal (percutaneous nephrolithotomy).
