Depends on size: Once kidney stone is confirmed by ct of kidneys treatment depends on size. Large stones needs to be surgically removed by urologists while smallers ones will pass. Push fluids and take pain meds. Sound waves can be used in lithotripsy to break up stones that can be naturally passed as well.
