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.

Diagnosis

Physical examination, lab tests, and imaging tests are done to diagnose the gallstones. The doctor also asks about your diet to identify the reasons.

  • 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

If all the remedies fail to serve the purpose of removing gallstones from the body, then the best-suited treatment is the laparoscopic gallbladder surgery. In this treatment, a small incision is made through which a tiny video camera and surgical tools are inserted. Laparoscopic treatment is the best-recommended option. It offers fast recovery, only one incision and is minimally invasive. If you want to get rid of the gallstones permanently, then reach out to your nearest doctor in Tirunelveli.
