Kidney Stone Clinic


The Pediatric Kidney Stone Clinic is a partnership between Pediatric Nephrology and Pediatric Urology addressing an observed increase in kidney stones in children. Our clinic provides both medical and surgical services for children affected by kidney stones. Patients referred to the clinic meet with our team for an evaluation and treatment of existing stones. Subsequent visits identify any predisposing causes so that medication and changes in diet can help prevent kidney stones.

The clinic staff makes every effort to obtain prior X-rays, blood and urine lab results from referring physicians before your visit. You may want to contact the clinic before your visit to ensure we have these health records. If we do not have these document, please bring any related medical records or results with you.

Clinic Information
The Comprehensive Kidney Stone Clinic sees patients once a month. The clinic meets on the 4th floor of Doctors' Office Tower in Children's Hospital.

For your first visit, please arrive 15 to 30 minutes before your appointment to complete medical forms. Bring your insurance information, current medications, and other information related to your visit.

Tracy Hunley, M.D., associate professor of Pediatrics in Nephrology, and John C. Thomas, M.D., assistant professor of Urologic Surgery in the Division of Pediatric Urology, co-direct the clinic.
