Helping you prevent kidney stones when possible — and offering advanced, minimally invasive techniques to remove them when surgery is required.

Every year more than 3 million people see a doctor for relief from kidney stones. That includes a high percentage of Southerners due to factors like diet, hydration habits, and warmer climate. The Erlanger Kidney Stone Clinic aims to prevent stone episodes, but when they do occur – we offer advanced minimally invasive techniques to break up and remove them with very little downtime. Because 50% of kidney stone patients will likely experience another kidney stone episode in 5-10 years, our goal is to empower you with education and resources to prevent future occurrences.

The Region’s Only Dedicated Kidney Stone Clinic offers:

  • A strong focus on prevention to help you eliminate or reduce future kidney stones
  • The latest minimally invasive stone removing procedures including ureteroscopy, percutaneous nephrolithotomy, and shock wave lithotripsy using technology such as digital scopes, holmium laser, and dual ultrasonic/pneumatic lithotripsy
  • Two convenient locations – Erlanger East and University Hospital downtown
