Gallbladder stones are a common problem in Indian patients. If the stones are causing symptoms surgery is recommended. It requires removal of the gallbladder as otherwise the gallbladder which is not functioning properly will make more stones in future. The gallbladder only stores bile temporarily and is not an essential organ.
Most of the times surgery for Gallbladder stones can be completed laparoscopically and only occasionally an open surgery is required. It there are stones in the Bile duct also which is usually indicated by abnormal liver function tests an additional procedure may be required for that, either endoscopic removal (ERCP) or surgical removal (CBD exploration).
Most of the patients only need an overnight stay in hospital after laparoscopic gallbladder removal and can be discharged within few hours.
