What are Gallstones?
Gallblader is a small, pear-shaped organ on the right side of our abdomen, under our liver. Its work is to store and release bile. Bile is made by our liver; it is a green -yellow liquid that helps with digestion. Bile also carries wastes like cholesterol and bilirubin, which your body makes. These things are the main reason of gallstones.
A Gallstone can be large as a golf ball and also small as a grain. In some cases there is just one gallstone and in some cases people can develop many gallstones. In some case gallstones can be treated with antibiotics but usually it require gallbladder removal surgery.

Gallstone Diagnosis and removal surgery
We will perform your physical examination ehich includes checking your eyes and skin for visible changes in color. A yellowish tint may be a sign of jaundice, the result of too much bilirubin in your body.
We will do your diagnostic tests that help doctor see inside your body. These tests include:
Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP):
you don’t need treatment if you don’t have any symptoms. Some small gallstones can pass through your body on their own. Most people with gallstones have their gallbladders taken out. You can still digest food without it.
Your doctor may need to perform a laparoscopic gallbladder removal. This is a common surgery that requires general anesthesia. The surgeon will usually make 3 or 4 incisions in your abdomen. They’ll then insert a small, lighted device into one of the incisions and carefully remove your gallbladder.
You usually go home on the day of the procedure or the day after if you have no complications.
You may experience loose or watery stools after gallbladder removal. Removing a gallbladder involves rerouting the bile from the liver to the small intestine. Bile no longer goes through the gallbladder and it becomes less concentrated. The result is a laxative effect that causes diarrhea. To treat this, eat a diet lower in fats so that you release less bile.
We highly recommend laparoscopic gallbladder removal surgery because :
