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?
