Stone Center Professional Resources

Our relationships with our professional colleagues are critical to the care we provide to the children and families we treat. To improve your experience and promote collaboration as we work together to care for our patients, we've collected a variety of resources and educational materials.

Referrals and consultations

To refer a patient, request a consultation, or if you have questions about one of your patients who is being seen by our team, we encourage you to call us at any time.

Our offices are open 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. After hours, your calls are referred to the urologist on call.

Clinical pathways

Our clinical care pathways for the management of suspected nephrolithiasis (kidney stones) outline key steps in the evaluation and treatment of children and adolescents with stone disease, including when to refer to a pediatric urologist or the ED. These pathways are intended to standardize patient evaluation and improve diagnostic techniques and treatment plans. By creating standardized care models, our goal is to establish evidence- and risk-based assessment and treatment methods, and increase the number of stone-free days.

Education and training

The Division of Urology at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia offers a flexible two- or three-year fellowship, and we accept one ACGME pediatric urology fellow per year.
