    Why surgery is needed?

    The primary aim of gallbladder stone surgery is to treat the symptoms (problems) you are facing due to gallstones. And to prevent the complications arising due to gallstones, some of which can be life threatening. You can read about them a little below on this same page.

    Asymptomatic Gall-Stones

    Asymptomatic gall-stones are usually observed. Only high risk asymptomatic patients (those having more probability to develop gall-stone related complications) are advised for surgery. The High risk asymptomatic patients are diabetic, person on chemotherapy & immunocompromised person (HIV).

    Symptomatic Gall-Stones

  • Symptomatic patients should consult a medical expert for surgery. Laparoscopic (Key hole) gall-bladder surgery is a worldwide accepted treatment for such patients .
  • Stone dissolving therapy is ineffective for gallbladder stones and has inconsistent results. Also, in such patients, the main problem is with the gallbladder itself and with the patient's metabolism. And that is the reason why only stones are not removed by surgery. We need to remove the whole gallbladder. If only stones are removed and gallbladder is left behind in place, the stones will form again.
  • No, Gallbladder surgery does not affect your digestion

    Contrary to the common perception, there is no change in digestion after removal of Gallbladder. There are no specific restrictions to diet. You need to eat small quantity more frequently than having large meals. You need to avoid very fatty food , spicy food and fried foods. These are the dietary advice that should ideally be followed by all as measure to improve overall health. After surgery you can have everything in moderation.

    Laparoscopic Gallbladder Surgery

    Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive approach to surgery. Several small incisions are made in the abdominal wall, through which are inserted tubes that allow the passage of the surgical instruments needed for the operation.

    Compared to open surgery, benefits of laparoscopic surgery include

    • Less post-operative pain
    • Better cosmetic results
    • Fewer wound infections
    • Fewer incisional hernias
    • Faster recovery and return to pre-surgical levels of activity
