Metabolic Stone Clinic
For patients with recurrent stone disease, metabolic evaluation and treatment are highly effective ways of preventing future stones. In addition to improving overall quality of life, there also are significant cost advantages to stone prevention. Experts in metabolic stone disease, Dr. Steele and Kris Penniston, PhD, RD, evaluate each patient’s diet, urine chemistry values, and stone composition to develop an individualized stone prevention program.
Urologists throughout the region are welcome to use the UWSP’s resources to perform metabolic evaluations.
