The most common disorder of the gallbladder is the formation of gallstones. Gallstones form when excess cholesterol in the bile crystallizes, causing the gallbladder not to empty properly. They can vary in size from a minute grain of sand to a large golf ball. The gallbladder can then become inflamed and/or infected; this is known as cholecystitis. Although an infection can be treated with antibiotics, the repeated formation of gallstones often requires laparoscopic gallstone surgery.

The health care professional uses your medical history, a physical exam, lab, and imaging tests to diagnose gallstones. During the physical examination, the doctor also checks your body, asks about your diet and check for pain in the abdomen
Medications will reduce the pain experienced but will not eliminate gallstones permanently. Only surgical methods (called Cholecystectomy) are effective. Cholecystectomy can be performed in two ways- Traditional open surgery or laparoscopic gallbladder surgery. Laparoscopic surgery uses a small incision. The laparoscope has a tiny video camera and surgical tools. The tube, camera, and tools are put in through the incision. The surgeon does the surgery while looking at a TV monitor and removes the gallstones. We highly recommend laparoscopic gallbladder removal surgery because :

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.
Gallbladder stones are divided into three different types based on their composition. These types are explained below:
