Kidney Stones Overview
Kidney stones are a painful reality for many people. According to the National Kidney Foundation, one in 10 people will have a kidney stone in his or her lifetime. A kidney stone results from a buildup of salt and mineral in the urine.
The symptoms of a kidney stone include severe pain in the back, side and below the ribs; pain that comes in “waves”; frequent and painful urination; blood in the urine; and in some cases, nausea and vomiting as well as the inability to pass urine. Hattiesburg Clinic Urology offers same-day treatment for patients who are in need of relief of kidney stone pain.
We offer several treatment options, depending upon the size and location of the stone as well as the severity of your situation. One of our urologists can assess your kidney stone through ultrasound, X-rays and/or CT scans in order to recommend the best course of treatment.
