Dr. Cormack on the Kidney Stone Center: 

Kidney Stone Center opening

“I am thrilled to be a part of UW Medicine Kidney Stone Center, the first comprehensive center for the treatment and prevention of kidney stones in the Puget Sound region!

 

Our multidisciplinary team of experts in urology, nephrology and nutrition provide a single point of care for patients suffering from acute or recurrent kidney stones. Our urologists treat kidney stones using the latest minimally invasive surgical and nonsurgical procedures. I work closely with our dietician to develop a personalized approach to kidney stone prevention for every patient.

 

Our center also participates in national research into kidney stone prevention and treatment, so we can offer patients access to clinical trials of newly developed therapies and treatments.”
