Urological Clinic Munich-Planegg

Urinary stones (urolithiasis)

Urinary stones, especially kidney and ureteral stones, have become a common condition. Around 5–10% of people will develop a urinary stone at some point in their lives. Urinary stones are more common in western countries, where food is abundant resulting in a high-fat, high-protein diet, than in poorer countries. They are therefore, at least in part, a disease of affluence.

In our clinic, we treat and advise patients with urinary stones on a day-to-day basis. The website of our Urolithiasis Centre provides a wide range of information on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of urinary stones.
