Pediatric urinary tract stones can be a one-time episode or a chronic condition that requires ongoing treatment. Patients and families can expect to receive comprehensive care at the Stone Center from initial evaluation through continued follow-up. We coordinate referrals, appointments, tests and treatments, so they will occur in a single, convenient clinic setting. We encourage you to ask questions and share information to help us best meet your child’s needs.
Depending on your child’s stone condition, you will meet with multiple specialists from our interdisciplinary team. Before the initial visit, our nurse coordinator may arrange for testing to be done ahead of time. Testing may also occur during your visit, after the clinical assessment. Available test results will be reviewed with you during your scheduled visit.
At the initial visit, you will have a chance to ask as many questions as needed to understand your child’s diagnosis and the treatment options. Education related to diagnosis, treatments and testing is directed to parents or guardians, and the child or teen as appropriate.
