Stone Disease

Sophisticated patient management

Our Metabolic Evaluation Clinic for Kidney Stones, which is led by Dr. Andrea Lantz, offers state-of-the-art evaluation and management of patients with urinary tract stone disease. This includes metabolic evaluation and treatment. In our clinic, patients can have their blood and urine tested, plus receive dietary teaching and urological consultation. The laboratory facilities needed to perform most of these urine and stone chemistries are available within the clinic setting.

We support patients from Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and Newfoundland by providing a unique and sophisticated service to individuals with a common problem. Our dietician allows for optimal dietary evaluation and counseling, both of which are considered to be important modalities in terms of stone prophylaxis.

The facility also offers great learning opportunities for undergraduate and postgraduate medical students and dietetic interns.
