Brief Answer: Surgery is needed. Detailed Answer: Hello, Surgery is essential to treat the condition. It cannot be cured with medications.A hydronephrotic kidney is under constant pressure and with time functional tissue of kidney may be lost.This will also predispose infections. If parents not afford the cost then you can try in government civil hospital , XXXXXXX hospitals or medical college hospitals. These hospitals will do surgery at much lesser cost. Hope this helps.Please ask if there are doubts. Regards,
