Pediatric Bladder, Kidney and Ureteral Stones
Children's Health Pediatric Comprehensive Stone Center
Kidney stones are becoming more common in children. In addition, some children have genetic conditions that cause kidney stones or have other conditions that lead to kidney stones. The diagnosis and management of stone disease in children can be complex.
Our multidisciplinary team has extensive experience diagnosing and treating children who already have or who may be at risk of developing kidney stones. The team includes nephrologists, urologists, nurse practitioners and dietitians, since diet can play a significant role in helping to prevent new kidney stones from forming.
Children's Health and UT Southwestern Medical Center is looking for patients to participate in a research study on kidney stone prevention. Learn more here to see if you qualify.
