The stone in the parenchyma of the kidney cannot be removed. Unfortunately, that's stone can only be removed when it enters the drainage system of the kidney. If you still have remaining stone in the drainage system of the kidney, this can be removed by ureteroscopy in most instances and someone who is skilled at this procedure. If your surgeon is not skilled enough to remove it, then you should seek a second opinion at a major university medical center where they can most likely remove this. Hope this helps.
