Advances in Kidney Stone Treatment Now Offered at JRMC

Story originally featured by Tom LaVenture at Jamestown Sun Jamestown Regional Medical Center is now treating patients who have kidney stones, a leading health issue with the new urology department, with non-surgical methods. “(Kidney stone treatment) probably represents 25 to 30 percent of a general urology practice,” said Dr. Robert Bates, head of the urology department that opened in November. A kidney stone forms when high levels of substances not normally present in the urine accumulate, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases.

Growvember at JRMC raises over $1000

The month of November is dedicated nationally to the awareness of men’s health issues, often celebrated with overgrown facial hair and magnificent mustaches. At JRMC, the month of November marked the arrival of our newest specialist, Dr. Robert J. Bates, MD, Urologist. Grow-vember is a campaign aiming to spark conversations about men’s health and act as a call to action for men to grow their mustaches or beards for the entire month in support. “We just want to grow mustaches and beards,” said Cody Champagne, Mac Cimbura and Lucas Morken, Physical Therapists at JRMC, when asked about the idea behind the fundraiser. Throughout the month we saw many donations dropped into our cash for staches jars at JRMC,  several beard/stache selfies shared and a total of over $1000 raised! In support of his new practice, all proceeds from this year’s Grow-vember campaign will support the purchase of the equipment and tools needed to start a brand new Urology department at JRMC. Give the team props for a job well done and mustaches well grown. Contest winners will be announced via facebook. read...
