Can gall bladder stone be removed without surgery
My mother is 60 years of age and she is having gallstones. Is surgery the only treatment for removal of gall stone? Can gallstones be removed without undergoing a surgery? Are there other alternate modes of treatment like homoeopathy or ayurveda which can remove the gallstones? If there are no symptoms then is there any need for treatment or surgery?

Hello gall stones usually require removal of the gallbladder as it's a disease of gall bladder not only the stones. So even if the stones are removed the diseased gallbladder is left back. There are certain gall stone dissolving drugs but they are not much helpful.
Next Steps
I suggest you go for a laparoscopic Cholecystectomy as it's the gold standard treatment
Health Tips
Avoid fatty and oily meals
