What are Gallstones?

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.

Causes

Excessive dieting

Obesity

Treatment

Diagnosis

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.

  • Blood tests to check the level of bilirubin to determine the liver functioning
  • Ultrasound of the abdomen and CT scan to analyze if the gallstones are present.
  • Endoplasmic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) with the help of a small camera down to the gastrointestinal tract. This is done to check for the gallstone obstructing the bile duct.

Surgery

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 :

  • Lesser incision, lesser pain
  • Faster recovery
  • Incision will practically leave no scar
  • Great cosmetic value to people, especially ladies
  • You can resume your daily life quickly
  • Perfect for busy professionals
  • Insurance covered
