How a Nephrologist Will Help With Recurrent Kidney Stones

How Kidney Stones are Treated

Pain Medication

Passing a small stone may be annoying. Your doctor can prescribe pain relievers to alleviate minor discomfort.

Medication
Medical therapy

To help you pass your kidney stone, your doctor can prescribe medication. An alpha blocker is a form of drug that relaxes the muscles in your ureter, allowing you to move a kidney stone more easily and with less pain.

Sound waves to break up stones

Sound waves are used to produce powerful vibrations (shock waves) that break up the stones into small bits that can be transferred through the urine. Since the operation takes 45 to 60 minutes and may be painful, you may be given sedation or mild anesthesia to help you relax.
