Treatment of Kidney Stones
The good news is that most kidney stones do not require invasive treatment. Courses of care include:
- Increasing hydration (as much as 2-3 quarts of water daily) and taking an over-the-counter pain reliever until the stone passes
- Shock-wave lithotripsy, which causes the stones to disintegrate
- Minimally invasive procedures such as ureterscopy or percutaneous surgery
