Hi, hydronephrosis is condition which is developing as consequence of renal obstruction. It is impossibility of drainage urine from the body. It is in your father's case obstruction is caused by stone. It also may be caused by tumors or some other disorders. Treatment depends on the fact where obstruction is placed. It may be solved by abdominal catheter, renal stent or kidney operation if removing of stone is possible.
