The Multidisciplinary Stone Clinic at Mayo Clinic's campus in Minnesota offers comprehensive care for adults and children with kidney stones including those that are rare or complex. For example, the clinic's doctors have helped many people living with cystinuria and primary hyperoxaluria.
Your kidney doctor (nephrologist) collaborates closely with other specialists — urologists, urologic surgeons, radiologists, dietitians and others as needed — to diagnosis your condition and develop an individualized treatment plan. Their coordinated approach to care ensures that your visits are efficient and complete.
Infants and children are seen by pediatric nephrologists and pediatric urologists with expertise in kidney stone disease.
Advanced diagnosis and treatment
The experts of the Multidisciplinary Stone Clinic offer advanced and precise diagnostic tests and treatment options, including some that are available at very few major medical centers. Your doctors might recommend tests such as specialized renal imaging, renal function studies and renal biopsies.
Our physician-scientists are committed to conducting research into the causes of kidney stones and new therapies to treat them and related conditions. They regularly publish studies in scientific peer-reviewed journals to advance the science and improve care for people everywhere.
People who are treated at the Multidisciplinary Stone Clinic may have access to clinical trials. Ask your doctor about studies that may be right for you.
