St. Luke's Better Health: Kidney Stones

By Ken Dey, News and Community
September 5, 2013

Kidney stones are not life threatening but they can be very painful.

Kidney stones are small, hard deposits that form inside your kidneys. The stones are made of mineral and acid salts.  A stone may stay in the kidney or travel down the urinary track. Kidney stones vary in size. A small stone may pass on its own, causing little or no pain. In this Better Health segment Dr. Michelle Myers talks about the prevention and treatment of kidney stones.
