What are gallstones?

When the excess cholesterol present in the bile turns into crystals, they are called gallstones. The gallstones do not let the gallbladder empty properly. Gallstones are of different sizes and sometimes cause the inflammation of the gallbladder (cholecystitis). If the gallstones form repeatedly, laparoscopic surgery is needed.

Treatment

Diagnosis

The diagnosis of gallstones by laparoscopic surgeon entails a discussion on patients’ medical history, physical examination as well as lab and imaging tests. During the physical examination, the doctor may check the body, asks what you eat during the day and for pain in the abdomen. The other tests may include:

Blood tests to measure the amount of bilirubin in the blood; the tests also help determine how well the liver is functioning.

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) where a tiny camera is inserted in the gastrointestinal tract to help the doctor view the gallstones stuck in the bile duct.

Abdominal Ultrasound and CT scan for better imaging and pictures of the gallbladder to better analyze the symptoms and signs of gallstones.

Procedure

The modern laparoscopic procedure to cure gallstones in an advanced surgical method performed with Laparoscope. The Gallbladder Surgery is performed by making a small incision instead of a bigger one. A laparoscope is a surgical tool with an in-build video camera; the tube, camera, & tools are passed in through the incision. The camera helps the surgeon in better imaging the body parts and removes the gallstones as the laparoscope provides excellent imaging.

In general, you can expect to go home once you’re able to eat and drink without pain and are able to walk unaided. It takes about a week to fully recover.

The Laparoscopic gallbladder removal surgery has a lot of benefits, the same are listed here:

In Our Doctor's Word

“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.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the different types of gallstones?

Why should you Avoid Open Surgery for Gallstones and Gallbladder problems?

Before the conception of laparoscopic treatment, open surgery was the one and only method for gallstones and other gallbladder problems. The common practice was to remove the gallbladder entirely and the process was called an open cholecystectomy. But the risk factors associated with open surgery are hard to ignore. Before deciding which method to choose, the doctors will perform tests and physical exams to see if the risks are significant in your case.

Some of the risks of open surgery are:

  • Allergic reactions to anesthesia or drugs used for sedation
  • Formation of blood clots
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Injury to blood vessels
  • Infection that can spread to other organs
  • Injury to the bile duct or small intestine
  • Pancreatitis

And if these risk factors weren’t enough, open surgery is done through a large-sized incision on the abdomen that causes excruciating pain after the surgery and leaves a big scar too.
