Once considered to be a problem of adulthood, kidney stones are being more regularly documented in children as young as age five. What factors are responsible for the increasing prevalence of this condition, and what can we do to reverse this emerging pattern of childhood kidney stones? Dr. Bruce Slaughenhoupt, assistant professor of urology and co-director of the pediatric kidney stone clinic at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine, evaluates the clinical implications of this trend with host Dr. Jennifer Shu.
