The diagnosis of gallstones by laparoscopic surgeon entails a discussion on patient’s medical history, physical examination as well as lab and imaging tests. During the physical examination, the doctor may check the patient’s body, ask what he or she eats during the day or of the patient feels any pain in the abdomen. The doctor may ask for other tests such as blood tests, Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangitis Pancreatography (ERCP), an Abdominal Ultrasound or a CT scan.
The modern laparoscopic procedure to cure gallstones is an advanced surgical method performed with Laparoscope. The gallbladder surgery is performed by making a small incision. Patients are allowed to return home the same day of their surgery, though sometimes a one-night stay in the hospital is needed. 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.
