Penn Urology

Urinary Stone Disease (Calculi)

Hardened mineral deposits that form in the kidney may become lodged in the kidneys or in the tube that carries urine from the kidney to the bladder (ureter), causing severe pain and blocking the flow of urine. Penn urologists treat kidney stones, using surgery or lithotripsy. An alternative to surgery, lithotripsy uses ultrasonic waves to pulverize the stones, which are then more easily passed out of the body in the urine.
