Kidney Stones

Excessive minerals accumulate to form stones in the inner lining of the Kidney which are known as Kidney stones. They usually consist of calcium oxalate but may be composed of several other compounds. Kidney stones can grow to the size of a golf ball while maintaining a sharp, crystalline structure. The stones may be small and pass unnoticed through the urinary tract, but they can also cause extreme pain as they leave the body. Kidney stones are very commonly found in Americans. Minimally invasive treatments are found effective for Kidney stones. All the factors can be discussed in this session.
