Kidney Stone Pathway

Talk with your healthcare provider about a referral

Not all patients with kidney stones need a referral. Depending on your symptoms, the size of your kidney stone, and where it is located in your body, you may need a referral to a urologist (urinary system specialist).

You should hear about the progress of the referral to your urologist within 3 months.

Your urologist will assess you and your condition and recommend what treatment is best for you and your needs.

To help you prepare for your specialist appointment, download or print the Alberta Health Services Patient and Caregiver Journal​ (PDF).
