Abstract

The incidence of urolithiasis in children is increasing. Adequate knowledge of treatment modalities and surgical options is therefore essential for every pediatrician. Surgical approaches to urolithiasis in children continue to evolve with advancements in technology and sophistication of current equipment and techniques. Perhaps the most significant development in new techniques is the advent of robotic-assisted laparoscopy. This review, for the general pediatrician, summarizes the most recent pediatric data and guidelines for surgical approaches to treatment of urolithiasis.
