Don Arnold, II, MD, has been a urologist for nearly 20 years. For the past decade he's been treating Southern Illinoisans at SIH. "Stone Season" is now underway and runs through October. 

Dr. Arnold is seeing more young people dealing with kidney stones. He says there are many reasons for that--including highly caffeinated energy drinks. Heat,

humidity and dehydration are contributors to kidney stones. Arnold says hydration is key during the summer.

Dr. Arnold spent time Thursday morning with Tom Miller on WJPF Radio talking prevention, treatment and risk factors. Listen here to his entire interview.

The nearly 20-minute segment covers a wide range of topics including: kidney stones, robotic surgery, and more.
