Calculus in the upper pole of kidney? Based on its size and composition there are multiple options. If the calculus is very small it usually pass on its own by the use of excess water. If it does not pass or is larger you can have shockwave therapy called lithotripsy or you can use medication to dissolve it. If it is of hard type or it is very large and is compromising kidney function then u have to go under an operation.
