Recently, SouthCoast Health nephrologist Dr. Joseph Lapinsky appeared on WTOC's Morning Break to address why kidney stones are a recurring issue that sends approximately a half a million people to the ER every year.
Many of these emergency room visits for kidney stones occur during summer because dehydration is a key factor that leads to this condition. However, kidney stones can be developed any time of the year. This is why Dr. Lapinsky shared tips on how to avoid kidney stones, their symptoms if you think that you might have developed a kidney stone, and how to address this issue with a medical provider.
