Ultrasound of abdomen showed calculus in ureter, LIF in kidney. Allopathic surgery required?

My Whole abdomen Ultrasound Exam. indicates 8 mm calculus in distal ureter in LIF in Lt kidney. Will homeopathic or ayurvedic treatment crush the stone so that it can be passed through urine without much of pain. Or any alopathic surgery recommended. I am 64 years old and had undergone surgeris in 2003 and 2005 for gall bladder removal and inguinal hernia .

Since the size of stone is more than 6 mm,it may not be possible for it to pass of it's own.
The best non surgical way of removal is dormia basket extraction where by instrumentation through your urethra,the stone can be extracted.
Consult a urologist for the procedure.
