Treatment of kidney stones:
The method of treatment of kidney stones is determined based on their type or size:
Small kidney stones:

  • Drink enough water, equivalent to 2 or 3 liters per day.
  • Medications to help relax the muscles of the ureter (alpha-blockers) for their role in facilitating the passage of stones with urine.
  • Analgesics (pain killers) which help relieve the symptoms and pain felt by the patient.

Large kidney stones:

  1. Breaking up the stones with sound waves/ shock waves.
  2. Removing stones via ureteroscope.
  3. Removing of stones via surgery.

The condition may require treatment of hyperparathyroidism due to its role in the formation of calcium phosphate stones.
