Kidney stones are one of the most painful conditions and have been affecting people for several centuries. They are one of the most common disorders of the urinary tract. Kidney stones are a major problem and an important cause of kidney failure in India. Appropriate and timely treatment of kidney stones can prevent severe complications such as kidney failure.

Stones in the urinary tract are a common disorder because urine is a chemical solution that contains a large number of chemical substances. These substances can crystallize easily and then grow in size to form stones.

The number of people suffering from kidney stones is increasing every year, especially in the industrially developed countries. It is relatively less common in places where the economy is based on agriculture. This highlights the role of affluence and dietary factors in formation of kidney stones.

In India, stones in the urinary tract are very common in the sub- Himalayan region from Punjab to North-East. This is why this region is known as "the stone belt".

Kidney stones are more common among men than in women.
