Hi kumar Gall bladder stone formation is mostly due to non functioning of gall bladder.So mainstay of the treatment for gall bladder stones is cholecystectomy (REMOVAL OF GALL BLADDAR) There are two methods of surgery open and laparoscopic. laparoscopic surgery has advantage od early recovery.hospital stay will be around 2 days for laparoscopic surgery. Medical treatment for dissolution of the stones is not much sucessful
