In brief: Here are...

How ; when to remove stones inside kidney? Surgeon has to consider the size/stone load, density, location, availlable technology, and patient's understanding, expectation, and coping ability so to finalize when and how to do it.
Largely, some 15-25 yrs ago, some 60-75% of kidney stones are removed with eswl + percuataneous techniques; nonadays, some 65-70% of kidneys are removed through urethra.
