You may not realize you have kidney stones until you experience the most common warning sign ―the sudden onset of excruciating, cramping pain in the low back and/or side, groin or abdomen. The pain may come and go, and it may be so severe that it causes nausea and vomiting, along with other symptoms. When you are experiencing this level of discomfort, it's important to get the right kind of care and treatment.

Medical Director C. Stephen Woolums, MD

The Kidney Stone Program at Cabell Huntington Hospital was established to provide comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of kidney stones. Medical Director C. Stephen Woolums, MD, leads a multidisciplinary and multispecialty team of urologists and nephrologists working together with the Kidney Stone Program coordinator to provide individualized care of each patient. Our comprehensive approach to planning your care includes:

  • Timely appointments
  • A comprehensive examination and metabolic evaluation
  • Analysis of the evaluation data
  • An individual treatment plan based on the metabolic evaluation, including a referral for appropriate pain management of kidney stones, fluid intake recommendations, diet modification as needed and medicine as indicated
  • Follow-up care to determine the effectiveness of the prescribed treatment plan

Learn more about the symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of kidney stones.
