Surgical Options
Your Practo Care doctor will examine you and suggest the right treatment based on your symptoms
  • Performed when the patient is overweight/obese and/or has severe gallbladder disease
  • Performed under general anaesthesia
  • Requires a five to seven inches long incision on the abdomen
  • The gallbladder is identified, cut, and removed from its base with the stone intact inside it
  • The incision/cut is closed with stitches or staples
  • The most common surgical technique
  • Performed under general anaesthesia
  • Requires three to four small incisions in the abdomen
  • A laparoscope is inserted through one of the incisions to identify and remove the gallbladder
  • The gallbladder is removed, and the incisions are then closed with stitches
  • Performed for removing gallstones from the bile duct
  • Performed under moderate sedation, so the patient is awake but does not feel any pain
  • An endoscope is passed through the mouth into the small intestine and from there to the opening of the bile duct
  • The stones are removed using the endoscope
  • The procedure takes around 20 minutes to an hour
  • Similar to laparoscopic surgery
  • The surgeon at the console controls and manipulates robotic devices (hands) to perform the surgery
  • Involves smaller cuts and lesser complications
Medications are not the mainstay of treatment and are only given for pain relief (painkillers)
