The only way to get rid of kidneystones it to urinate them out or doctor may give you surgery to remove them but shock wave surgery does not remove them just blasts them but other than that there is no other way to "cure" them.

Lithotripsy, or shockwave treatment is not surgery. A shockwave is used to break up the stone. This is an outpatient procedure. After the stone is broken up, you pass it in your urine.
