Kidney Stones

For most patients, kidney stone pain is unmistakable – severe pain at the bottom of one side of your rib cage. This is often accompanied by nausea and blood in the urine.

Since kidney stone pain is not something that can wait, Dr. Lacefield makes sure his patients are treated promptly. If this treatment includes kidney stone surgery, the most important factor is to remove the stone in a single operation. For this reason, he typically prefers laser surgery to visually ensure the stone is wholly removed.

In other news, Dr. Lacefield is bringing a new kidney stone treatment, Mini-PCNL, to the Cypress, Texas area.

This same day surgery will specifically target larger kidney stones with a tiny incision, using only the most up-to-date scopes and equipment.

While removing a kidney stone in one step is an important first step, it’s equally important to ensure a thorough workup to form a plan and prevent future stones. Dr. Lacefield will be with you throughout the entire journey.
