Kidney Stones

Most kidney stones originate as crystals in the kidney, enlarge over time, and then pass through the urinary tract. Before recent medical advances, most patients with stones either passed them spontaneously, or underwent open surgical incisions to remove them. Today however, it is rare for patients to undergo open stone surgery. With the current use of spiral CT scanning, most stones are now rapidly diagnosed and treated.
