Dr. Ziemba’s clinical focus is on the surgical treatment and medical management of kidney stone disease. This clinical focus is supported by a McCabe Foundation Award aimed at understanding how kidney stone treatment may impact a patient’s health-related quality of life. He is also interested in the continuum of care following ambulatory surgery, particularly as it relates to kidney stone surgery. This work is supported by a prestigious Data Grant from the American Urological Association.
