Kidney stones: Is surgery necessary?
FYI, saw this short video on Mayo Facebook page from Urologist, Dr. Karen Stern answering the basic questions about kidney stones.
Not sure if this has been shared before, if it has, sorry for duplication.

Laurie, I'm so glad you posted this. I just learned more about the multidisciplinary approach of the Kidney Stone clinic at Mayo Clinic AZ. Patients are seen by a urologist, nephrologist, and a dietician. In my opinion, the addition of the dietician is so critical. I had a kidney stone (much to my surprise) and after it was passed, most of my questions focused on diet and lifestyle. What caused me to have a kidney stone in the first place and what could I do to prevent them in the future. Most of the answers for me were linked to movement (I sit at a computer too much), hydration, and some modifications to my diet.
@roch, have you had kidney stones?
