Kidney stones are common, painful, and frequently recur. Although precise estimates of the incidence of symptomatic kidney stones for the entire US are unavailable, a Minnesota population-based study reported that between 1984 and 2012, the incidence of symptomatic kidney stones that required treatment increased from 51 to 217 per 100 000 person-years in women and from 145 to 299 per 100 000 person-years in men.1
