I am working on a research paper with my team to propose a treatment for kidney stones. However, while plotting down the main points, we came across a question that is “is there actually a possibility to discover a permanent cure for kidney stones?” And if yes, is this cure applicable on people with risk factors and kidney dysfunction only or is it applicable on people who have kidney stones due to dietary factors?

There are many causes of kidney stones including genetic factors, dietary factors, environmental factors and factors related to kidney disease as well as other systemic diseases.  It will not likely be possible to find a single treatment that will cure kidney stones for all people.
