Gallstones are hard pebble like accumulation of digestive fluid that can form in your gallbladder. Your gallbladder is a small, pear-shaped organ on the right side of your abdomen, just beneath your liver. The gallbladder holds a fat digesting fluid called bile that's released into your small intestine through a series of channels known as bile ducts.
Gallstones range in size from as small as a grain of sand to as large as a golf ball. You can develop one large gallstone, hundreds of tiny stones, or both small and large stones. But if a gallstone gets stuck in the bile duct, it can trigger a sudden, intense pain in your upper right abdomen that usually lasts between 1 and 5 hours.This pain is called a gallbladder attack, or biliary colic and the condition is called cholecystitis. If your symptoms continue and they’re left untreated, gallstones can cause deadly complications and may require gallbladder removal surgery. At Pristyn Care, with the best doctors and modern treatments, you will be back to normal routine in 1-2 days.

Medications will reduce the pain experienced but will not eliminate gallstones. Only surgical methods (called Cholecystectomy) are effective .Cholecystectomy can be performed in two ways- Traditional Open surgery or Laparoscopic Gallbladder surgery. Laparoscopic Surgery uses 3 to 4 very small incisions. The laparoscope has a tiny video camera and surgical tools. The tube, camera and tools are put in through the incisions. The surgeon does the surgery while looking at a TV monitor and removes the gallstones. We highly recommend Laparoscopic surgery because:
