Patient Care Philosophy
I believe in educating patients about their medical condition and when possible presenting them with options for their medical issues. My goal is to provide the highest level of state-of-the art patient care, often including a multidisciplinary approach, in a compassionate environment.
All aspects of the treatment of kidney stones including surgical (shock wave lithotripsy, ureteroscopy, laser lithotripsy and percutaneous treatment of larger stones) and comprehensive medical prevention of recurrent stones. Dr. Sorensen also performs other minimally invasive techniques such as robotic and laparoscopic kidney and reconstructive surgeries.
The impact of dietary and non-medicinal therapies on the risk of kidney stone formation. Epidemiology, outcomes and health services research. Translational research to improve the detection of kidney stones using ultrasound and efforts to make lithotripsy safer and more effective.
