Gallstones, also known as cholelithiasis, is a condition in which hard stones start to form inside the gallbladder or bile ducts. These stones usually form when the bladder doesn’t empty completely. Due to this, the leftover bile juice starts to precipitate as there is a higher concentration of cholesterol or bilirubin. These stones may leave the bladder and get stuck in the bile duct or other organs, causing severe and sharp pain.
In such a scenario, you will need to see a doctor and may also need surgical treatment to remove the stones. If you have been diagnosed with gallstones and seeking advanced care, get in touch with Pristyn Care and undergo gallbladder stone surgery in Aurangabad at the hands of the most experienced doctors.

In many cases, a person with gallstones develops jaundice, due to which the skin and nails become yellow in color. The doctor will also ask if you have other symptoms of gallstones, like a sharp pain or fever. For an accurate diagnosis, the doctor will have to perform some tests.
Here are the tests that are done to find out the size and number of stones present in your gallbladder
The results of these tests will help the doctor determine the severity of the condition and also narrow down the appropriate treatment method.
Gallbladder removal surgery or cholecystectomy is the most effective solution for gallstones. Thus, at Pristyn Care, we employ the modern laparoscopic technique for gallstone treatment in Aurangabad. Alongside this, we also perform open surgery whenever possible. In both scenarios, the gallbladder is removed to ensure that all stones are removed and there is no chance of recurrence.
During both surgeries, local or general anesthesia will be used to ensure that the patient doesn’t feel any kind of pain or discomfort. Once the surgery is complete, the patient will stay under observation for 24 hours and then get discharged.

“Gallbladder removal is the only final solution to the problem of gallstones. But many a times, I come across patients who fear the surgery and look for ways to remove only the gallstones. This is also because, they confuse gallstones treatment with that of kidney stones. See, both are different. Unlike kidney stones, where the kidney is healthy and the stone itselves can be removed as a treatment, gallstones result from diseased gallbladder. Once they start forming, they keep crystallizing unless the entire gallbladder is removed permanently. Otherwise, you would experience severe and unbearable pain that will last for hours and spread to the entire right side of your system. With passing days, it would only become more frequent and worse each day. This is why I suggest you do not trust just home remedies or quacks and seek a good treatment as soon as possible. This will solve your problem from its core and allow you to live a better healthy life.”

A gallstone is a stone that forms inside the gallbladder due to precipitated bile components. The presence of gallstones is called cholelithiasis. The common reasons for gallbladder stone formation are:
In all these cases, the excess cholesterol and bilirubin may start to crystallize and eventually turn into stones. Besides the above-mentioned reasons, there are two other factors that impact gallstone formation. The first one is the frequency and ability of the gallbladder contractions. If the contractions are incomplete and infrequent, the bladder won’t empty properly and cause the bile to become over-concentrated. The second factor is the presence of proteins in the liver and bile that either promote or inhibit gallstone formation.
Initially, the size of these stones is equal to a grain of sand. However, it can grow quickly and become as large as a golf ball. Moreover, the gallbladder may contain one or multiple stones of smaller or equal size.
When left untreated, gallbladder stones can turn into a serious medical issue. If you don’t take a proactive approach for your health and consult a doctor to remove the stones, it can cause the following complications:
Ignoring gallbladder stones is not advisable under any circumstances. You should consult a doctor and discuss what you can do to get rid of the stones permanently.
If you have smaller stones, it is possible that they can be removed through medicines. However, if the stones are large and present in a great number, the doctor will most certainly suggest gallbladder removal surgery, i.e., cholecystectomy.
People often feel worried when the doctor suggests surgery. But you should know that gallbladder is an organ whose function is to store bile juice. When the gallbladder is removed, the bile juice directly passes into the stomach, thus, the body’s function is not affected at all.
Therefore, cholecystectomy or gallbladder removal surgery is a permanent solution for gallstones. In some cases, having surgery is an option, but in others, surgical treatment becomes a necessity to ensure that the stones don’t cause any other kind of problem.
So, if you are experiencing sharp pain in the belly region, have a fever, or have yellow skin, visit a gallbladder specialist in Aurangabad and discuss what can be done to treat gallstones.
