Failure to Diagnose Obstructing Kidney Stone — Portland Law Firm
Kidney stones, while they can be quite painful when being passed, usually do not cause permanent damage. That is not the case when a kidney stone obstructs urine flow. An obstructive kidney stone is a medical emergency, especially in a patient who has only one kidney.

We are recognized as one of Oregon's pre-eminent medical malpractice law firms. From our offices in Portland and Eugene, our attorneys represent plaintiffs injured by medical malpractice throughout Oregon and southwestern Washington.

Misdiagnosis of Kidney Stone Obstruction in Oregon
Kidney stones are small mineral deposits that form inside your kidneys. In most cases, a patient may need only water and pain medication to pass a stone. Depending on the size and location of the stone, surgery may be needed.
An obstructing stone can require immediate attention, as a kidney that is blocked may stop working over time. An obstructing stone can also lead to infection.
If a medical professional failed to diagnose and treat your obstructing kidney, and you suffered a serious injury as a result, you may have a case of medical malpractice against the provider.
