How do I set up a stone clinic?

Book Section

A comprehensive stone center can effectively manage complex urinary stone disease with the right tools. A collaborative team that includes a Urologist, a Nephrologist, a Dietician and a mid-level practitioner is optimal. The center should coordinate with an efficient and convenient laboratory to provide point-of-care and at home services. Imaging capabilities must be convenient and suitable to detect metabolic stone activity. Initial and follow-up visits should be directed at determining metabolic derangements, understanding the level of stone activity, and assuring adequate response to medical management.
