Kidney stones cause pain, but it’s not referred to as kidney pain. Kidney stones generally are painless — or relatively painless — as long as they remain in the kidneys. It’s when the stones move out of the kidneys that pain typically occurs — waves of sharp, intense pain, which doctors call renal colic or ureteral colic.
Kidney stones (renal lithiasis, nephrolithiasis) are small, hard mineral deposits that form inside your kidneys. The stones are made of mineral and acid salts.
Kidney stones have many causes and can affect any part of your urinary tract — from your kidneys to your bladder. Often, stones form when the urine becomes concentrated, allowing minerals to crystallize and stick together.
Your doctor may recommend preventive treatment to reduce your risk of recurrent kidney stones if you’re at increased risk of developing them again.
Dr. Caesar published many book chapters on subjects ranging from robotic kidney surgery to prostatitis. He has researched and written articles on a variety of topics including kidney cancer, laser treatment of BPH (enlarged prostate), and hematuria. While at Penn, he worked with and trained under a number of leading surgeons and experts in the field of urology. He maintains a very strong relationship with the institution and its affiliated hospitals.
Dr. Caesar’s areas of interest include minimally invasive (laparoscopic) and robotic surgery for the treatment of both cancer and benign diseases, a wide variety of treatments for BPH, prosthetics including inflatable penile prostheses, medical and surgical treatment of urinary incontinence, removal of kidney stones, and sexual medicine.
He has attended courses to learn advanced robotic techniques in treating urologic diseases, and state-of-the-art methods in the surgical treatment of urinary incontinence and BPH. He is excited to bring these procedures to our practice and the patients he treats.
Dr. Caesar is a member of the American Urological Association.
