Kidney stone manipulation


Urine contains many dissolved minerals and salts. When your urine has high levels of these minerals and salts, stones can form. Some stones stay in the kidney and don’t cause problems. Others can travel down the ureter (the tube between the kidney and the bladder). If the stone reaches the bladder, it can be passed out through the urine. If the stone becomes lodged (stuck) in the ureter, it blocks the urine flow. This causes great pain.
