Lithotripsy for Kidney Stones

We were one of the first hospitals in the nation to use lithotripsy treatment for kidney stones. This non-surgical procedure uses shock waves to break stones into fragments small enough to be passed through normal urination. For larger stones or to treat more complex stone disease, we also offer laser or ultrasound treatments to destroy stones.

Our expert teams of urologists and nephrologists collaborate to bring you the most advanced approaches to kidney stones.
