When a person develops a kidney stone, they experience an extreme amount of pain and distress. It can be difficult to pass a kidney stone on your own, so many people throughout the Inland Empire including the Rancho Mirage area seek treatment options for their kidney stones.
This is especially important if it is a recurring issue. There is a variety of treatment options available for kidney stones. The urologist will evaluate the size, placement and type of stone before deciding which treatment option is best for the individual patient.
Patients who are prone to kidney stones can talk to their doctors about preventative methods as well as long-term treatment options that are available. To find out if you are at risk for developing kidney stones be sure to set up an appointment with your urologist as soon as possible.
