Kidney stones are on the rise in children due to a variety of factors. To meet the increasing need for specialized care for children who develop kidney stones, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia created a cutting-edge Pediatric Stone Center. In this video, you'll hear from a multidisciplinary team of pediatric urologists, nephrologists and dieticians, along with a patient family, to learn about the symptoms and causes of kidney stones and the expert care and management the Center provides — from diagnosis and treatment to prevention and long-term follow-up — so kids can live healthy, stone-free lives.
