Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. (@ChutkaMD)
Guest: Ivan E. Porter, II M.D.
Kidney stones are quite common and represent one of the most common disorders of the urinary system. When symptomatic, stones are relatively easy to diagnose as they tend to cause a very characteristic clinical presentation. While most stones will pass through the urinary system, others will require a variety of treatment options. The topic for today’s podcast is kidney stones and we’ll discuss the diagnosis, management, and prevention of stones with Ivan E. Porter, II M.D., a nephrologist at the Mayo Clinic.
