Gall Bladder Stone Surgery


Gallstones are hardened deposits of digestive fluid in the gallbladder that can occur. Your gallbladder is a small, pear-shaped organ located just behind your liver on the right side of your belly. Bile is a digestive fluid that is stored in the gallbladder and discharged into the small intestine.

Gallstones can be as little as a grain of sand or as big as a golf ball in size. Some people produce one gallstone at a time, while others acquire multiple gallstones at once.

Gallstones frequently demand surgery to remove the gallbladder in people who experience symptoms. Gallstones that don’t create any symptoms don’t generally need to be treated.


Gallstones can appear without causing any symptoms. If a gallstone lodges in a duct and causes a blockage, the following signs and symptoms may occur:

  • Pain in the upper right area of your abdomen that comes on suddenly and grows worse quickly.
  • Pain in the centre of your abdomen, right below your breastbone, comes on suddenly and gets worse quickly.
  • Back pain between your shoulder blades is a common ailment.
  • Your right shoulder hurts.
  • Vomiting or nausea.

Gallstones aren’t known to have a cause. Gallstones are considered to develop when:

  • When there is too much cholesterol in your bile- Normally, enough molecules are present in your bile to break down the cholesterol released by your liver. However, if your liver excretes more cholesterol than your bile can break down, the extra cholesterol may crystallize and create stones.
  • When there is too much bilirubin in your bile- Bilirubin is a substance created by your body when red blood cells are broken down. Cirrhosis of the liver, biliary tract infections and some blood problems all cause your liver to produce too much bilirubin. Gallstones are caused by an excess of bilirubin.
  • When your gallbladder is not emptying properly- Bile can get exceedingly concentrated if your gallbladder isn’t emptying completely or frequently enough, which can lead to gallstone formation.

Laparoscopic gall bladder surgery

Laparoscopic gallbladder removal is a minimally invasive operation in which a damaged or inflamed gallbladder is removed using small incisions and specialized equipment.

The gallbladder is a tiny organ in your right upper belly, just behind your liver. Bile, a liquid produced by the liver, is stored here. The gallbladder secretes bile into the small intestine, which aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary lipids.

Without a gallbladder, normal digestion is possible. If it gets highly infected or inflamed, it may be removed as a therapy option.

The most common type of gallbladder removal procedure is laparoscopic removal. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is the medical term for the procedure.

Advantages of Laparoscopic Gall Bladder Surgery

Laparoscopic gallbladder surgery is the best way to treat gallstones that cause symptoms. When there are no problems that could complicate the surgery, laparoscopic surgery is the most typical option. Get the best at Apollo Medics Super Specialty Lucknow-
