Your doctor will decide on the best possible treatment. Sometimes they will do lithrotripsy on bigger stones, or they may go up the ureter and use a special little device that catches the stone and removes it. Sometimes they will put in a stent to see if that helps pass the stone. Sometimes, especially if the stone isn't blocking off the ureter, they will just wait and see if it passes on its own. There are a lot of options and your doctor will decide what is the best one considering your situation.
