Kidney Stone Prevention and Management
If you’ve ever had a kidney stone, you know how excruciatingly painful it can be. The good news is that preventing them can be as simple as changing your diet and drinking more fluids. Nevertheless, a lot depends on the type, size, and frequency of your kidney stones.
That’s where the expert evaluation and care of a nephrologist can help.
At Commonwealth Nephrology Associates, our goal is to prevent the recurrence of kidney stones, which means that we need to understand the cause. Our nephrologists will determine if there are any underlying factors or diseases that may be contributing to the formation of kidney stones or making them worse.
Our physicians provide an aggressive approach to treating chronic kidney stones. They can determine the type of kidney stones you have, develop an individualized care plan that may help treat and prevent them and provide medical management of the condition on an ongoing basis.
If you are prone to kidney stones or dealing with one for the first time, don’t assume that you’ll be fine once the stone passes. In many cases, you may not be able to pass it and will instead require surgery. Repeated episodes of kidney stones may also cause kidney disease.
If you are in pain and suspect you may have a kidney stone, consult with one of our nephrologists who will assess your condition and prescribe a care plan aimed at prevention and management.
