Your Mayo Clinic care team
The Mayo Clinic Hyperoxaluria Center in Minnesota brings together doctors from many specialties to design a personalized treatment plan, based on the type and severity of hyperoxaluria and any related conditions. Mayo Clinic coordinates your testing and doctor appointments to speed the process of diagnosis and treatment. A specialist in kidney diseases (nephrologist) usually manages your care.
Mayo Clinic in Minnesota also has a Stone Clinic, specializing in the diagnosis and management of kidney stone disease, including rare types of stone disease. Mayo Clinic is the home of the Rare Kidney Stone Consortium, which is a member of the Rare Diseases Clinical Research Network of the National Institutes of Health.
Advanced diagnosis and treatment
At Mayo Clinic, specialists can run specific tests for hyperoxaluria, such as measuring oxalate in blood and urine and DNA testing, that aren't widely available.
Mayo Clinic offers a range of services, from treatment to reduce oxalate in your urine, to minimally invasive procedures for kidney stone treatment and removal. Or, if needed for severe hyperoxaluria, Mayo Clinic surgeons can perform kidney or kidney-liver transplants.
Mayo Clinic provides outstanding transplant teams, led by highly skilled surgeons and medical transplant teams experienced in the care of patients with primary hyperoxaluria.
