Suffering From Gallstones?

Get Your Gallstones Removed Through Minimally Invasive Keyhole Surgery

What is the Gallbladder?
The gallbladder is a small, pear-shaped organ on the right side of your abdomen, just beneath your liver. The gallbladder holds a digestive fluid called bile that's released into your small intestine.
What are Gallstones?
Gallstones are hardened deposits of bile that can form in your gallbladder. Bile is a digestive fluid produced in your liver and stored in your gallbladder. When you eat, your gallbladder contracts and empties bile into your small intestine (duodenum).

Gallstones range in size from as small as a grain of sand to as large as a golf ball. Some people develop just one gallstone, while others develop many gallstones at the same time.
Think you might be suffering from gallstones?
What are the symptoms of gallstones?

Gallstones may cause no signs or symptoms. If a gallstone lodges in a duct and causes a blockage, the resulting signs and symptoms may include:

  • Sudden and rapidly intensifying pain in the upper right portion of your abdomen

  • Sudden and rapidly intensifying pain in the center of your abdomen, just below your breastbone

  • Back pain between your shoulder blades

  • Pain in your right shoulder

  • Nausea or vomiting


Gallstone pain may last several minutes to a few hours.

Suffering from any of these symptoms?
How to treat gallstones?
1. Medication
Medications you take by mouth may help dissolve gallstones. But it may take months or years of treatment to dissolve your gallstones in this way, and gallstones will likely form again if treatment is stopped.

Sometimes medications don't work. Medications for gallstones aren't commonly used and are reserved for people who can't undergo surgery.
2. Surgery
Minimally invasive, keyhole surgery to remove the gallbladder, since gallstones frequently recur. Once your gallbladder is removed, bile flows directly from your liver into your small intestine, rather than being stored in your gallbladder.

You don't need your gallbladder to live, and gallbladder removal doesn't affect your ability to digest food, but it can cause diarrhea, which is usually temporary.
