GP Information

St. Vincent's Hospital now offers a dedicated stone clinic to assess and manage patients with renal stone disease. As well as offering non-invasive shockwave lithotripsy, we are able to offer a full range of stone treatments where necessary, including endoscopic treatment with laser lithotripsy and percutaneous stone treatment as appropriate.

In this clinic, recurrent stone formers can also be assessed for underlying metabolic issues that manifest with renal stone disease.

Referrals can be made using this form: and should be faxed to 03 9231 3627. We endeavour to see new referrals as soon as possible.
