Kidney stones are a painful and often recurring issue that can significantly impact your quality of life. At our hospital, we are dedicated to providing advanced care to manage and prevent kidney stones effectively.

The symptoms of kidney stones include sharp pain in the back or lower abdomen, pain during urination, and sometimes blood in the urine. These symptoms can be severe and require prompt medical attention. Our hospital uses state-of-the-art diagnostic tools to accurately identify the presence and size of kidney stones, allowing us to develop a targeted treatment plan.

Treatment options for kidney stones vary depending on the size and location of the stone. Small stones may pass on their own with increased fluid intake and pain management. However, larger stones may require more advanced treatments such as extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), which uses sound waves to break the stones into smaller, passable pieces, or minimally invasive surgical procedures to remove them.

Prevention is a key aspect of managing kidney stones. Our team provides personalized dietary recommendations to help prevent the formation of new stones. Increasing fluid intake, reducing sodium, and avoiding foods high in oxalates are common preventive measures. We also offer regular monitoring and follow-up care to ensure that any new stones are detected and treated early.

At our hospital, we are committed to providing comprehensive care for kidney stones, from accurate diagnosis and effective treatment to ongoing prevention strategies. Trust our experienced team to help you manage and overcome this painful condition, ensuring you receive the best possible care.
