In brief: No

After endoscopic (surgical) treatment for your kidney stones, the patient is generally discharged home the same day.
If there is excessive bleeding, infection, or side effects from the anesthesia, an overnight stay maybe required.

In brief: Hmmmm

You might not need to be hospitalized for stones.
Consult your doctor. In many cases they can send you home. If your kidney is obstructed they may wish to do percutaneous extraction of the stones.
