Methods of treatment to remove kidney stones
Prevention is the best cure and proper hydration by drinking enough water each day helps flush the kidneys. In some cases, a change of diet and medications prescribed by the doctor may be sufficient to lower the patient's risk of kidney stones.
If further treatment is required, the doctor or urologist will be able to provide some options. The best type of treatment and how much it costs to remove the kidney stones will depend the doctor’s recommendation based on on the diagnosis of your kidney stones.
