Innovative Kidney Stone Care
Second Opinion Urologist for Kidney Stones in NYC – Board Certified and Fellowship Trained
Dr. Alex Shteynshlyuger is a urologist in NYC who specializes in treating some of the most complex kidney and ureteral stones in men and women.
While some people may pass stones without pain, many have significant symptoms from kidney stones. Untreated, kidney stones can cause severe infections and damage kidneys. In situations like that a urology consultation is beneficial.
We specialize in treating men and women with complex kidney stone problems including multiple and large kidney stones, as well as impacted ureteral stones. We also treat some of the sickest patients who require urological care including men and women with heart disease who cannot stop aspirin or Plavix.
Many people have complicated medical problems including frequent kidney stone disease and complicated medical needs. When symptoms do not improve or the primary urologist is uncomfortable dealing with complex urological and medical problems, a second opinion from New York Urology Specialists often leads to a change of treatment or diagnosis. We can guide you to the right treatment for kidney and ureteral stones to achieve the best possible outcome. Oftentimes we also coordinate care with other specialists who need to be involved in your care.
We also take care of complications that occasionally occur as a result of kidney stone or ureteral stone treatment. If you or someone you know experienced surgical complication as a result of treatment for kidney stones, we have extensive experience managing some of the most challenging problems often using minimally-invasive methods.
