Kidney Disorders

Common Kidney Disorders

Your kidneys — located in your lower abdomen — clear any excess liquid and waste from your blood in the form of urine. Severe pain typically alerts us to problems in the kidneys, which can range from stones to cancer, both of which are best managed with early detection and treatment.

When salts and minerals collect in the kidneys for any number of reasons, you may experience kidney stones. Although stones may remain in your kidneys, they may also pass through your urethra and cause significant pain. We have years of experience removing kidney stones and helping patients manage pain.

If you are diagnosed with kidney cancer (abnormal, malignant cell growth in your kidneys) our team of professionals at Wichita Urology Group will help you determine the best course of action to fight your disease.
