Kidney stones can be very painful for anyone. The hard deposits can develop due to diet, excess body weight, and some medications. Some people are at risk for re-occurring kidney stones, due to genetics or lifestyle. When you have re-occurring kidney stones, they can interfere with your day-to-day life. At Temple, we offer some of the most advanced treatment options in the area to provide relief and management of kidney stones.
During an April chat, Temple urologist Dr. Justin Friedlander spoke about the medical management of kidney stones and surgical treatments that help to eliminate the pain that comes along with kidney stones.
