Kidney Stones Treatment and Prevention

X-Ray Guided, Minimally Invasive Surgery

Dr. Justin Friedlander, director of Einstein’s Comprehensive Kidney Stone Center, is one of the only physicians in the Philadelphia area to perform percutaneous nephrolithotomy for larger kidney stones. This process uses x-ray guidance to gain access to the kidney where the stone is removed through a small incision in the flank.

Individualized Kidney Stone Prevention

For stone prevention, Dr. Friedlander conducts comprehensive metabolic evaluations to develop individualized patient treatment plans.

Additonal Treatments

Other treatment options include ureteroscopy and laser lithotripsy, a minimally invasive treatment for stones that involves placing a telescope in the urinary system (through the bladder) and uses laser energy to break stones.
