What are Gallstones?

Gallstones or gallbladder stones are masses formed in the gallbladder by the precipitation of bile components. Many people have asymptomatic gallbladder stones that don’t cause pain or any discomfort. However, when the stones obstruct the bile duct, it may result in acute cholestasis that leads to intense visceral pain in the upper right part of the abdomen. Gallstones or gallbladder stones can lie dormant in the body for years without any treatment. However, if the precipitation continues and the masses grow, gallstones can become a severe ailment that can only be treated with surgery.

Laparoscopic gallbladder removal surgery is considered to be the safest and most effective treatment for gallstones. So, if you are looking for treatment for gallbladder stones in Delhi, you can consult with Pristyn Care laparoscopic surgeons and undergo the best treatment.

Treatment

Diagnosis

During your initial consultation, the gallbladder stones surgeon is likely to check your symptoms physically and know more about the history of gallbladder stones in your family. The doctor will run a physical examination and recommend certain imaging tests to diagnose the gallstones. During the physical examination, the doctor will check the body, and ask about the diet and check for pain in the patient’s abdomen. Tests for diagnosis of gallstones may include:

  • Blood tests: To measure the amount of bilirubin in your blood and determine how well the liver functions.
  • Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP): A tiny camera is threaded down to your gastrointestinal (GI) tract to help the doctor identify gallstones stuck in your bile duct.
  • Abdominal ultrasound and CT scan: For better imaging of the gallbladder to analyze the signs of gallstones.

Procedure

The only effective treatment for gallbladder stones is cholecystectomy, which means removal of the gallbladder. At Pristyn Care, gallbladder removal is done through the laparoscopic technique. In laparoscopic gallbladder removal surgery, the gallbladder doctor (who is basically an expert laparoscopic surgeon) makes a small incision and inserts a laparoscope with a tiny video camera mounted on top and surgical tools. The camera gives the surgeon a detailed and clear view of the abdomen that allows the surgeon to perform the surgery effectively. Laparoscopic gallbladder removal surgery is a highly safe, effective and reliable treatment for gallbladder stones. In addition, the recovery time is much faster, and the incision will practically leave no scar.

In Our Doctor's Word

What-Dr. Mohsin Khan-Say-About-Gallstones-Treatment

Dr. Mohsin Khan

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, DNB - General Surgery

12 Years Experience

“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 and pain free life.”
