Lakeview Health System
Stone Clinic (Kidney Stones)
Kidney stones are affecting more people, sooner in life.  And they tend to recur-up to 50% within 5 years. It is now possible to identify the underlying cause of kidney stone formation in almost all cases. This leads to a better chance of prevention through lifestyle changes or medication. The SMG Stone Clinic is specifically for   patients who have previously had stone surgery or passed a stone on their own. Our multidisciplinary stone clinic treats and manages kidney stone disease over the long term.

Patients are evaluated for both medical and dietary risk factors in stone formation through blood and urine studies. Based on this  metabolic evaluation, a unique treatment and prevention plan is designed for each patient. This  multidisciplinary approach means that the patient will be seen by a urologist with specialty training in the management of stone disease.  Also, an internist with expertise in diagnosing and treating metabolic disorders that lead to stones is available for consultation.  Finally nutrition specialists are available to help with identifying nutritious and  lifelong low stone forming diets.
