In this video, Ryan Hsi, MD, FACS, discusses the recent Urology study, “Comparison of Selective Versus Empiric Pharmacologic Preventive Therapy of Kidney Stone Recurrence with High-Risk Features,” for which he served as first author. Hsi is an associate professor of urology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee.
