Kidney stones affect approximately 10 percent of Americans over the course of their lives. Here in the Colorado Springs region, with the high altitude and dry environment, kidney stones are even more common due to the high risk of dehydration. Fortunately, there are a number of easy dietary modifications that aid in the prevention of kidney stones. The National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Information Clearinghouse has information on kidney stone prevention.
An acute kidney stone episode is one of the most painful experiences of a person’s life. There are numerous treatment options for kidney stones depending on the size, location and number of stones including noninvasive shockwave lithotripsy, ureteroscopic stone removal or percutaneous stone removal. We have extensive experience with all of these techniques.
One of our partners, Dr. Jeffrey Moody, is also the only kidney stone fellowship-trained urologist in the Pikes Peak region.
