At Advanced Urology, we believe our patients are vital members of the healthcare team. We want every patient to be well-informed and involved in his/her diagnosis and treatment plan. Research has proved that patients who are educated about their condition and treatment have better outcomes. To help, we are providing a list of questions about kidney stones for your conversation with your doctor.

Questions to Ask Your Doctor about Your Kidney Stone Treatment

  • What diagnostic tests and procedures are most appropriate for me? Why?
  • What could happen if we do nothing?
  • What risks are involved in my treatment plan?
  • How have your other patients responded to this treatment?
  • What will be involved in recovery? Will I have any lasting effects from the surgery?
