Kidney stones, heavy pain, put in stints, removed stone, on heavy medication. Any alternated treatment?

My son-in-law has had severe kidney stones for 8 months. I can t even tell you how many times he has been in the hospital and lays in excruciating pain. They have put in stints 3 times, have gone into the kidneys and removed stones, 24 hr urine collection and given heavy duty pain meds for months. We can't go on like this what do you suggest?
