Patients who develop kidney stones suffer severe pain and urinary symptoms. They also suffer anxiety over future attacks and financial concerns. The average cost of kidney stone surgery is $17,400 but can be as much as $35,800. Patients may suffer numerous kidney stones in their lifetime. Stones that pass on their own may cause narrowing of the ureter. This often causes future health issues such as infections and loss of time at work.
