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.

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 what you typically eat and check for pain in the abdomen.
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 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 :
