Kidney Stone Treatment Options

August 1, 2016 | Noon – 1 p.m
Sri Sivalingam, MD & Fernando Cabrera, MD

Kidney Stones are small crystals that form in the kidneys and are a very common urinary tract disorder. The most common symptoms of kidney stones are back or abdominal pain, or blood in the urine. Although kidney stone attacks can be very painful, the majority of stones can pass on their own. However, when the stone becomes lodged and cannot pass, there are specialized minimal invasive surgical treatments available. These treatments include ureteroscopy, shock wave lithotripsy and percutaneous nephrolithotomy. Join us for a free private online health chat about kidney stone treatment options and get all of your questions answered by Cleveland Clinic urologist, Sri Sivalingam, MD and Cleveland Clinic Florida urologist Fernando Cabrera, MD.
