Dear XXXXXXX

Thanks for the query.

You shall need URS or PCNL for the stone in the ureter. It the stone is in lower ureter then the preferred treatment shall be URS and if it is upper ureter then it shall be URS or PCNL depending on the anatomy of the ureter. ESWL as an option does not exist for the stone in ureter. The treatment modality for kidney stone shall be decided by location of the stone and degree of hydronephrosis (swelling) on the kidney.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you

Regards

Thanks doctor for your reply . Stone is in the lower pole of the kidney with no hydronephrosis.

Dear XXXXXXX

You shall need probably PCNL for the kidney stone. However, for a definitive opinion you can send me your IVP films.

Sincerely
