If you have Kidney Stones, we are here to help

Kidney Stone Melbourne is the practice of Mr Uri Hanegbi. Our purpose is to remedy your kidney pain by removing your kidney stones.

This website contains detailed information about kidney stones – their causes, symptoms, treatment options and what can be done to prevent them. Kidney stones are formed as a result of ordinary chemicals in the kidney solidifying. This is usually due to an abnormality, related to a physical or chemical issue. These chemicals then precipitate, becoming solid particles which in turn may become crystals. These crystals grow over time to become kidney stones.

Kidney stones may cause pain, however you do not need to be experiencing pain to have kidney stones. The pain that stems from kidney stones is due to renal colic, which occurs when a kidney stone passes through the ureter.

Services personalised to your case

Our services are designed to treat kidney stones in a way that best suits the patient – there are various treatments that are used for specific cases of kidney stones. These depend on the location and size of the kidney stones, as they can vary hugely. Kidney stones can range from under 1mm in width to over 20mm – smaller stones are easier to address, while larger stones will nearly always require treatment.

Treatment for smaller and medium stones may include observation, ureteroscopy or Extracorporeal Shockwave Lithotripsy (ESWL). Treatment for larger stones may necessitate percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). The correct course of action will be addressed by Mr Hanegbi and discussed in a consultation.
