Kidney Trauma

Our urologists provide effective treatment for kidney trauma from injury by force. While the rib cage and back muscles normally protect the kidneys, they’re still susceptible to injury from blunt or sharp objects. The urologists at Urology Associates provide evaluation and care to ensure a full and stable recovery.

Kidney Trauma Symptoms:

  • Blood in the urine

Your kidneys are guarded by your back muscles and rib cage. But injuries can happen as a result of blunt trauma or penetrating trauma.
