The importance of climate change to urologists treating kidney stones


“I think there is an urgency for us as urologists who are seeing many of these patients with kidney stones to be advocates, not just for the patients whom we're treating today, but for the populations in the future,” says Gregory Tasian, MD, MSc, MSCE.

In this video, Gregory Tasian, MD, MSc, MSCE, and Jason Kaufman, discuss the takeaways of the study, “The impact of heat on kidney stone presentations in South Carolina under two climate change scenarios.” Tasian is an associate professor of surgery and epidemiology at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, an endowed chair of Cheers for CHOP, and a director of Pediatric KIDney Stone (PKIDS) Care Improvement Network at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Kaufman is a medical student at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine.
