Kidney stones in women are not uncommon. A kidney stone is a solid piece of material that forms in a kidney out of substances in the urine. A stone may stay in the kidney or break loose and travel down the urinary tract. A small stone may pass all the way out of the body without causing too much pain. A larger stone may get stuck in a ureter, the bladder, or the urethra.
A problem stone can block the flow of urine and cause great pain. We have a variety of tools and techniques available to treat kidney stones, from shockwaves (lithotripsy) to surgery. We will help you figure out the right approach to your particular condition.
